There was some rust on the driveshafts of my 4 wheel drive truck too. It's totally normal. I'm in the snow belt in Northern Michigan. What I do is once or twice a year wipe down both the front and rear drive shafts with lightweight oil on a rag soaked with WD-40. It's easy and only takes a few minutes.
