Possibly Purchasing a 06 WK

My fiance and I are looking at getting a 2006 WK Limited with the 4.7. Is there anything model specific I should be looking out for in regards to known issues? Not my first rodeo, I know the general stuff to look for when purchasing a used vehicle. Also, this will be my 3rd GC...had a 98 ZJ (now on my fiance's finger, ha) and currently have a 01 WJ. I love GC's. Very capable and have all the creature comforts. Just looking to see if there's anything I should know about the WK before signing any papers.

Thanks.

Nothing that isn't covered in the sticky posts here.

Maybe the N23 recall isn't listed, but that's a thorn in the side of anyone who wants/needs 4LO to work. I don't know that much about it though, mine hasn't had it done and never will. At least not by my choice.

Just basic stuff pretty much. Check to see if you hear a clunk when shifting into park, drive, etc. Always check to make sure 4Lo works.
