buying a ZJ tomorrow

Buying a 98 Grand Cherokee Limited tomorrow. V8, quadra-drive, 110k, leather, K&N intake, crazy clean, supposedly it was an Arizona car and spent much of it's time being towed behind an RV. Was the cheapest and nicest of all the trucks i was looking at (4x4 Jeeps and Durangos).

Planning on using it as a winter beater so I can park my Challenger in the garage for the winter, and if it survives maybe hitting trails with it in spring/summer. I will be driving it 40 miles to work and another 40 back, pretty much all highway.

Just checking in here to see if there's anything i should watch out for or service when I get it.

Since this is my introductory post, a little about me: I live in Brownstown, Michigan and build Jeep Wranglers for a living

Of course check for any gasket leaks. I'd also check the transmission oil level and smell it to make sure nothing foul is going on. As for servicing, you'll have to wait for someone else to chime in. Good luck!
