the rust isn't unusual. i'd be more worried about the shocks being too long and bottoming out....

The shocks have built in bump stops they shouldn't bottom out

You're lucky.I was born in VT and most vehicles are completely eaten up with rust.

It was, from the best i can tell, I snow bird's Jeep. It was bought new in Miami, all service was done at a VT Jeep dealer, and then sold in Dunedin, FL. So, it probably didn't see nearly as much salt as it could have.

This is a 2003 Rubicon - w a 3.25 in Rough Country lift w shocks (at least what he says)

75k miles. In perfect shape - inside/exterior. Obvious problems have been noted above (by you all - the experts)

He's asking $12,400 but I feel I can get him down.
