Bought my first jeep

Hey guys I just bought my first 1996 jeep cherokee. It's an auto 4 door. The body is in great shape, por15 under the jeep, NO RUST. Everything is mint about it including engine bay. Now at 183,000 miles what am I looking to go wrong? I don't no the mainentence history on it but it looks like it was taken care of. Brand new lift 3k ago same with the tires. It shakes at 55 but goes away, any ideas?

Shaking at 55 could be wheel/tire balance.

Or it could possibly be a cheap/poorly done lift. Lots of miles. But you bought it, so get to work.
