first jeep 1979 cherokee golden eagle

hello all,

title says the introduction... this thing has been sitting for 4 or 5 years, and needs some of the obvious attention before its driveable fluids/battery/hoses/general tune up... but i was wondering if there are any other special attention areas to go over, i was thinking maybe changing the differential fluid? this is all before i make it a driver to safely go wherever it is i want to go. its the 360 2bbl th400 quadra-trac model.

factory paint scheme with eagle on hood, original everything, brushguard etc...

I vote you take out those axles and sell them to me

On a more serious note, go ahead and check all the fluids, drain/replace as needed. If you're not too concerned with the 4x4 to begin with you can skip this, but at some point you're going to want to check the chain in your transfer case.
