Default Is this to much rust? Impact on price?

Hi Everyone,

Crossing this with the reddit group.

So I am thinking of selling my 02 3.0L Edge. It has 112,000 miles on it and is really clean outside- hardly any blemishes etc. I anticipate it needing new shackles soon, but other than that it is good to go.. new brakes, timing cover, water pump and I just did the hoses and drive belt. I have kept up on all maintenance and it has all new fluids. My only concern is the undercarriage rust. I live in MA, and have heard nightmare Ranger stories.

My question is how bad is this rust and how much should it impact the price? How long before this impacts the drive ability?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Shackles and leaf spring mounts could be done soon for sure but as for the rest looks normal to me. I wire wheeled my frame and sprayed it with undercoating to keep it from rusting and you could do the same depending on how you want it to look when selling it. definitely looks like no depth to the rust anyway which means not much work to make it look good again.
