Booked some tickets and made a flight to Stavanger, seller sent me all pics and info i asked for, so it was a chance to take, but deff worth it by the pics and info provided.

It sure got some issues, and was not close to perfect as seller promissed.
-throwing 2 obd codes, knock sensor and oil pressure sensor,
-It has a hissing/air blowing sound, that i suspect coming from exhaust or AC,
-2 climate codes,
-Some rocker guard rust, which goes off anyway cause of the uglynees, its been rust protected/undercoated some years ago, undercarriage still look Black and Nice.
-Some scratches in paint.

After i pointed out the issues for them, they asked me how much i was willing to offer and i threw them a lowball which they axcepted, guess we will see if i did a steal of a deal when i Get all issues and quirks sorted out and Get to check everything in depth.

Previous repairs, Most wear parts changed, seems well kept.
Brakes, rotors pads and brake hoses,
Both front springs,
Balljoints,
Wheel bearings rear,
Swaybar endlinks rear,
Pinion seal,
Rear Window wiper motor,
Steering drag endlinks,
Hood struts,
Reciepts for all services and repairs,
Good summer and Winter wheels'n tires

Jeep ran tight and smooth, engine felt strong and trans very tight, all the 550km/341miles back home to Oslo from west coast Norway
Feels like a great deal, deff stronger than the 4.7 low Output, feels Good to be back in s WJ.

Will start to look into issues, Get it checked out, repair whatever needed and do all maintainance and fluids.

Then i will start focus on upgrades and lift and tires, stay tuned

^^^Thx everyone Spent some more time with it to get familiar with it and investigating problems,,,

-Recked Transmission fluid level, hard to read dipstick right after filling into dipstick tube, level at low/cold mark so i added another 0.15qt, took it for a short ride, rechecked again, now level in the middle between lo/cold and hi/hot mark, will add about 0.1 more qt more tomorow, then it should be spot on.

-Re toped off coolant, and found where its going, looks like radiator is cracked at the top
can see some coolant Get thrown with fan up into the hood, found it croocked at the bottom, looks like it got a smaller hit in this area, no marks at bumber, this might also be related to the hissing sound, AC leak,,,?
Only lost about 1qt coolant fluid for all those miles, but wil be fixed asap.

-Engine oil look same, level same as before all this driving

-Checked AZ codes, 54 and 56, tried to clear them, checked again, 00!!! Looks like they where old codes, and now they Are gone

-Checked Power Steering fluid, spot on perfect.

-Checked brake fluid, level good, condition looked ok, will be changed anyway, safty first.

No quite sure, but better gearshifts and tiresize calibration Are worth it with 31's, and it did make a noticeble difference on performance Tune with my old low output. Eco fuel save MAP felt slugish and was about same mpg as stock.

Did the HO's come with a bigger exhaust system vs the non ho? If not will the 3" exhaust affect the back pressure being the motor its self is stock? And congrats on the new Jeep looks real clean i really like the interior combo!
