Just some simple stuff I can think of:

Check the 4wd
Check for rust (When i got my 94 2.5L it had **** tons of rust on the frame, don't know if this is the case with alot of jeeps... or just mine.)

i would 1st see what you are planning on doin with that jeep....i have a 95 2.5L and once i added a lift and bigger tires i dont get out of my own road and am curently starting a 350 swap..

check Trans as well, mines weak and will pop out of gear here and there

i wouldn't limit yourself to just a 2.5L look for a nice 4L as well.
95 YJ, 4" suspension lift, 32's, 2.5l 4 cyl (350 built and waiting to be installed in spring, along with ford 8.8 rear end)

rust on the frame and floor pans, look for how it shifts and if it is smooth
There's no replacement for displacement.
