with the 2001 Sport you are getting some good stuff, mainly the improved 4.0L engine that was first installed in the TJ in model year 2000. Since this one is an auto, you would not get the much improved 5-speed manual that also came out in model year 2000. The rest will depend on how many options were ordered with this Sport, I've seen them bare bones all the way to being as optioned out as the Sahara.
There is really nothing "bad" about this model year compared to the other years.
