New (to me) 1993 Wrangler YJ 2.5L manual

Just picked up a 1993 Wrangler YJ 2.5L manual with 112k miles on it.

It's as stock and as basic as they come. I think the only changes are a new soft top and new tires. No stereo, etc.

It's in decent shape for the age, but I don't know anything about the maintenance history, aside from that it was purchased from mechanic about a year ago and has sat ever since.

The serpentine belt is showing some cracking, so I know I need to replace that. It had a oil change sticker on the windshield which had faded out entirely due to sun.

Other than that, what maintenance would you suggest for 112k and in what priority order?

Thanks!

Start with changing all fluids, belts, filters and spark plugs. Check for codes, if any.

All fluids; front/rear diffs, gear box, motor, new fuel filter, air filter, plugs, wires, cap & rotor ,flush and change coolant, serpentine belt and hoses. That would be my baseline start for a new to me vehicle.

I was in the same boat when a bought mine. Spotty maintenance records. So I did these items plus all sensors; map, aits, tps, water temp and o2. Oh and a couple of doses of Techron fuel system cleaner. Runs so much better than when I brought it home the first day.
