First Jeep in Florida

A Jeep really seamed like a "must have" when I moved from NJ to FL. So its an 03 Sport,6cyl,auto,ac, stock and in pretty good condition.
The good: No rust,good tires, fairly new soft top,good body and interior and runs and shifts well.
The bad: A mere 169k ( commuter vehicle), bad rear main seal, no horn.
The plan: A little different approach than most vehicles I have owned. Since it drives well and only leaks a little oil, I will be cleaning up the interior replacing the roll bar covers, adding seat covers and a safari top first. Pulled the carpets and will probably just spray the tub and clear coat,but bedrugs or liner is possible.
I'll drive it as long as everything seems ok and then decide weather to do the rear seal or refresh the motor and drivetrain. If and when i catch the off road bug we'll see what happens. The amount of info and number of people on this site is amazing. Thanks for listening. Mike
