New Owner Maybe, What to look for??

Hello I am new here and just bought or about to buy a 99 GC Ltd on Ebay. I am going to check it out Monday and wanted to know what special problem areas i should be sure to look at. If I am not happy I do not have to take ownership when i get their.
It is the 4x4 with the 4.7 and it is the Limited model with 75k miles.
My main purpose will be to pull it behind my motor home.
Thanks for any help to make sure I don't start out with a problem.

BTW i own a motorcycle shop specializing in Gold Wings if I can be of any service to you guys.

www.HowellsCycle.com

Thanks Eric

Hey Eric,

One thing to check for on the GC Ltd is the 'blend doors' on the HVAC system. The limiteds have dual climate control and this can be a $1000 fix if it is broke.

Check out: http://www.wjjeeps.com/

This site has some great information. You will want to check codes on the climate control and the diagnostics when you look at the Jeep.

I don't unerstand what happens to all these manuals... do people eat them or toss them out the window... Just keep them in the glove compartment and sell them with the Jeep!!!
