So I rolled my TJ

Dont know if this has been covered elsewhere. But I rolled my Wrangler yesterday...long story. But anyway what do I have to do to be sure everything is ok. It was a fairly slow roll over 30-35 mph. No real damage to body at all. My concern is the motor. I pulled the plugs and turned the motor over to get all the oil out of the cylinders (it was upside down for about 40 min) replaced the plugs and it fired right up. Checked all other fluids...power steering, coolant etc. And topped off motor oil that leaked out. Anything I missed or should watch for?

It should be fine as long as it started up and you replaced all the fluids. Just keep an eye on everything. Can we possibly see pictures?
