How many miles are on the jeep. Try putting some seafoam cleaner threw the motor.

Check the tire pressure. Amazing how the cold weather zaps the psi's.

Replace all other Fluids. (Diff, Xfer Case).
Hope you used good Motor Oil when you did your Oil Change (Mobil 1, GTX, Amsoil, etc)
Look into Replacing wheel hub bearings. When they start to go bad it feels like you are dragging a Cinder block with your front axle.
Grease the heck out of everything, Kunkles, Driveshafts U Joints.
Summer = Hot = Refill your AC if you have to.
Always good to check on your spare tire pressure. Boy does it suck when you need it and its flat.

Check: Steering Fluid Level, Engine Belt, Tire Pressure, Brake Pads, rotors,
Blah blah blah.
Is this your DD, cause it sounds like you might be taking it out of storage.
