Little help if possible. I bought a 2000 Cherokee Sport 4x4. Upon a closer inspection, I found a lot of rust on the undercarriage, specifically the front and rear axle. What can I do to clean it off and keep it from coming back? If its too bad should I look at replacing the covers? Also, I live in Upstate New York so salt, sand, and snow are BIG!!!

Is the frame rusting or the axle housings? Or the differential covers? If it's the covers/axle housings, is it just surface rust or is it rusted so badly that its getting thin?

Diff covers are rusted to flaking, axles are surfaced, a little rust on the frame with some rusting on the body (above the right rear portion of the bumper).
