97 Grand Cher Laredo

I'm going to look at a 97 Laredo this weekend. It has 56,000 miles, 5.2 engine, and tow package. Any thing to look for on this Jeep? I've been looking at 97+ with V8 (for towing my modified Wrangler). In checking the consumer guides and reliability records, it seems like the 97+ grands have a much better rating (5 stars, compared with 3-4 stars for 96 and older grands). I figure with the very low milage, should be a pretty descent deal. Also did a car fax and came up clean (no reported accidents, 1 owner, no theft recovery, no spedometer tampering, etc...). All this for $9,000. This will be my 1st Grand (have had 3 Wranglers), so wanted to know if any thing else to check out?

take it for a 15-20min drive to warm up the tc...then take a sharp turn at low speeds. The vicous clutch tends to bind in the awd tc
