The New Jeep TJ

So I bought a nice looking 2005 TJ with about 47,000 miles. I had a 1991 YJ (bad experience) before. I am looking forward to wheeling my new TJ. I know this one will be much better (night and day) than the YJ just in the articulation alone. As a new TJ owner is there anything I should watch out for as in common problems and stuff?

The only thing I can think of right off the top of my head is some of the '05's and 06's got OPDA's from the factory that wear out prematurely and if not replaced can cause major issues. It's easy to tell if it's about to go out because it sounds like a laughing monkey.

Here's a video of a Jeep with a bad OPDA.

I know I noticed that when I drove the YJ. But every TJ YJ and CJ always waived if they saw me!
