Potential MJ in the near future

I'm seriously considering an MJ that somebody posted up in my area, well within my budget.

1988 2WD 4.0 longbed

Anything I should look for? And it's a 5 speed, but from what I've read, there's supposedly several different transmissions that came in these things. I'm assuming it'd be the AX15 if anything.

The AX-15 came mid way through the 89' model year. So, unless someone changed it most likely it's a BA-10. Not the best transmission but you can very easily upgrade to an AX-15 though. I believe the AX-5 only came with the 2.5l motor.

The guy just traded it for an F150 a few hours ago. Bummer.

If anything, that'll now allow me to hunt for one with 4WD and a 4.0. It was going for $895, I would have had enough cash tomorrow to buy it.

I'm kind of surprised at how rare these things are. Can't really find them on CL. An MJ with a 5.2L V8, 8.8 rear, and SOA on 33s would be mucho badass.
