Galvanized Body Tub?

Just joined the Forum. I am in the market for a used Rubicon. Can someone please inform me of the Model year when Jeep started to use "galvanized" steel? I have owned two CJ7 renegades in the past (81 & 85), both of which rusted away in the environment of Northwestern Pennsylvania. I do not want to deal with that problem again. Thanks!
