Rusty parts at the bottom of 2014 grand cherokee

Hello guys, I decided to clean the bottom of my truck today and found some parts with heavy rust on them. Pictures are attached. Would like to know wether these are normal since I only drive it In city never go off-road, and with only 3000 mileages so far. Thanks for your help.

Supertech30 is on a distinguished road
High carbon steel will surface rust very easy but then will pretty much stop. Very normal. Go spray your brake rotors with the hose and look at them tomorrow they will look just like those parts.

Yup normal. But I always do a once over underneath my vehicles with a few cans of anti-rust spray right after delivery. I hit all the exposed bolts etc, pretty much anything that isn't zinc plated.

Re: Rusty parts at the bottom of 2014 grand cherokee

I have that too. Wherever I see surface rust, I give it a light spray of WD40.
