Definitely do a complete fluid swap, check for wiring issues (mice like wires for some reason), belts, hoses, filters, etc. Anytime I purchase a "new to me" vehicle, I change oil and have transmission fluid checked/tested, and or changed...just so I know. On the ole 2.5 (that is what I have in mine...pushing 168,xxx miles), a freshen up, new plugs, wires, etc wouldn't hurt it or the bank...

don’t forget, a 4cyl TJ might very well have 4.10s. Mine did. I had 33s on a 4cyl TJ…it worked decent. 31s are perfect. Any 4cyl TJ runs out of steam on the highway though, and the taller the gears the worse they get lol
My '97 has 3.73 (if I remember correctly)...I am running 30x9.5x15 on mine (wrapped around Gen 1 welds)...Been wanting to re gear mine to 4.10's or ???? Mine is more of a ride around, grabbing ice cream with the family, spring/summer riding around...little to no off Roading...only if we get snow (very, very little in central AL), or if someone gets stuck when it rains and floods...
