Coolant leak

Just acquired a '97 GC Laredo. Got a pretty good deal on it. Previous owner thought he had a problem with the fuse block under the hood. After cleaning the battery cables and installing new cable ends, the thing runs great! Now, after it warms up, I have a coolant leak on the back side of the engine. Can't see exactly where it is coming from. Somewhere around the cylinder head. I'm guessing head gasket. Opinions? Learned guidance? It has the 4.0 and automatic trans. 192000 miles. Already bought the gaskets for it but I figure I'd seek the wisdom of this forum before I tear it down. Anything worse and I can always sell it for scrap. Only paid $250 for it.

If its a 97 its an XJ not a WJ so you might want to try on the XJ forums to get more replies. Good luck with it though.
