Question 91 YJ 87k miles

So I just bought a 91 yj. It has about 86-87k miles on it. I was told it sat in storage for about 7 years without all the fluids being drained. That being said, I was wondering what specific fluids I should focus on replacing if not all(even then let me know which). This is my first car I've bought so the more detail the better. He also told me that it occasionally sputters.

Thanks Everyone

Well I'd personally replace the more important ones first. The engine oil, and just check the rest to see how they look. If they're clean they should be fine. Like the brake fluid, power steering fluid, tranny fluid, coolant, differentials. If they smell burnt or look funny I'd replace them to be on the safe side. Same thing with the filters.

Barn Score!!!

Great find bro. That has about 100K LESS than my '91. Looks completely stock...?

As far as fluids go: Change the blinker fluid, oughta be good to go.

x2 on the good score for a low mileage '91! I'd change all the fluids mentioned by Quinnzeeskimo for two reasons.
1, Just 'cause it has sat for so long and some of it might deteriorate with age even if not used much.
2, It will help you get familiar with stuff that you will probably need to know sometime in the future.
And by the way....Welcome to the forum, You'll get to appreciate and love this place!
