Question Rover Rust

There's alot of older discos I see on the salty roads of Cincy and it got me thinking...
Do the Disco frames rust as bad as Defender frames?

Not looking to buy...just courious.
I wonder if disco owners are as paranoid about the rust bug as Defender owners?

It's not horrible on the D2 yet for the most part, occasionally we'll find it on frame bolts, etc.. on the D1 there is a lot more rust it seems since it's a bit older I guess... The rear door jams rust out quickly, and I've seen the trunk area eaten away before. I don't think disco owners for the most part are as neurotic about fixing it as defender owners since the trucks cost a fraction of the price.
