Look in the search for blend doors if it has the dual climate control, and viscous coupler for the 247 or 249 transfer case.
You can also check out www.wjjeeps.com for all kinds of info on the WJ's.

Drive it around in some tight figure 8's. If it binds up, pass on it. If it doesnt bind and the engine doesn't sound like a diesel, you'll be happy with it

And to the forum.

well i drove it a little while ago and it has a few cosmetic flaws such as the tailgate and front bumper on the side its cracked...has a few scratches here and there but it ran fine...i did the figure 8's and had no binding and shifted smooth and the motor made no awkward noises with no leaks..also it has the quadratrac 2 in it...good deal or no?

All depends on the price now. It sounds like it will be a good jeep for you, but the price is going to make or break the deal.

Meh, as long as there is no damage to the unibody, I say it is still a great deal.

I'm guessing a few cosmetic things, crack in the bumper, a few scratches, a ding in the tailgate !!

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
