That's something I need to do as well. Are the plugs easy to get out (4.0L)? I had issues with the last ford I tried to do that on. Apparently some 5.4L spark plugs like to get hot enough to sort of weld themselves to the heads. Or maybe it was the heads that got that hot.
either way I wanted to check if there were issues, after that experience, so I don't break any plugs trying to get them out.
Left the PO's house and went to the gas station, drove it home and stopped at the gas station again. Then changed oil and washed it. Took it to show off without the top and stopped by the gas station before putting it to bed.
Cleaned it up. (It sat for three years in a dirt floored shed) changed the oil plugs most of the sensors painted the wheels and flares and bumpers took.off the jugs por 15ed the frame
Then about 4 months later dropped in an 8.8 regeared to 4.10 lifted and added 33's. Now I am replacing bumpers....
bought mine new in '01
First thing I did was install armrests on the doors... still love 'em
lots of add-ons after that, but that was the first aftermarket parts purchase for the Jeep

Checked the fluids, drove it home.
Changed the wheels/tire within 20 minutes of arriving home (already had them from my recently deceased XJ)
Removed sundry plastic c**p from the bumpers.
Just bought my 98 TJ. So far all I did was replace the idler and tensioner pulleys and serp belt. Waiting for a day off where the street is dry so I could change the oil, diff fluids, TC fluid and 4wd switch. This TJ has been well maintained, so it's not a huge rush. Tranny fluid looks fresh, coolant is fresh as the radiator was replaced about 1000 miles ago. It needs the left SB link, so I'll change both.
