First Jeep: 96 ZJ Orvis Edition

I'm 15 looking for my first car and My buddies and I are really into off roading so I want a Jeep. I found a 1996 Grand Cherokee Orvis edition on Craigslist with a 5.2, 4x4, and the best part is it only has 77,000 miles. The guy put a few new parts on it. I really like this thing. But what are some common problems with these? I know a 5.2 is a 318, I know that's pretty reliable but what about transmission or electrical problems? He's asking $3,800 and KBB is $3,600. If I pay either of those or even a little less I'm not gonna be able to fix anything that breaks for a while, so I guess what I'm getting at is I wanna know if this thing is gonna be a reliable truck. My moms wk has 120k miles and no problems, so based on personal experience with Jeep I don't think it'd have a problem at all.
