Question RUST?!

Hi all -

XJ NOOB here . Previous WJ owner...

Looking at buying my first XJ. Have a line on a seemingly nice, low mileage example (1988 XJ, 4 door, 4.0L, full time 4WD, auto, bone stock). The only potential issue it that its lived near the ocean its whole life, so I'm a bit worried about rust.

I haven't been able to get it on a lift yet, but do have a couple undercarriage photos (below). It appears to have an undercoating, which obscures the visuals a bit.

There is obviously some corrosion/surface rust, but hoping you all might be able to clue me in if there may be more serious issues here. I haven't seen any noticeable rust on any of the body panels.

Would any of the below scare you away? Anything I should dig further into?

Thanks in advance!
