Question XJ buyers guide...

Hi,

I'm going to buy an XJ for a project trail truck that will see road use, but not as a daily driver, and I'm looking for advice on things I should look out for when making my purchase.

Are there some general things I should look out for?

I'm mainly looking for problems that would stop you from buying the XJ no matter the price.

Thanks!
AC
