Checklist of things to look for when looking at a 99 TJ.

I'm going to go look at a 99 TJ tonight and want to see if any of you have a checklist of things to look for or ask about. This will be my first jeep so I just want to make sure I look at everything before buying one. Any common problems I need to look for or anything?

I know rust, check and see which rearend stuff like that, but any common problems I should watch for? Thanks gang!!

The usual stuff. The only thing i missed on mine was a cracked radiator, which is common, so look for any residual fluid.
When my time comes, mix my ashes with gunpowder encased in brass, point me towards murderer's and pedophile's and let me fly.
