I posted previously in discussions about neighbor with 2004 LJ automatic for sale. After briefly looking at it, it is rough. Although Car Fax shows no accidents, three owners and miles sound about right according to dated services of 60 plus thousand miles.
It hasn’t run for a little more than a year, exterior never taken care of, interior dirty, no carpet and water in drivers foot well. The water bothers me because of being in Florida the interior would be a steam box. Body and frame seems to be rust free. Engine has some kind of modified breather system, owner mentioned something about cat back, I’m really not familiar with those systems. Suspension looks modified but not radically. I’m looking for a project but don’t want a disaster. Owner is gone for holiday but I will post pictures later today. I really appreciate the input. Thinking of offering 5 to 6 thousand.

Questions: How would the water in the foot well effect the wiring and electronics?

What should be done prior to starting engine considering year old gas
effecting injectors, etc.?

Water will not effect wiring or electronics (my past history with tj/lj) Don't get the steering column wet.

You are looking at a aftermarket air intake and filter. And you are looking at a aftermarket steering stabilizer. You have to oil the air filter periodically. For you too convert it back to its original airbox. No big deal either way. Drive it and see how easy it is to keep in you're lane without constantly adjusting the steering wheel.

Since I can't edit what I just wrote regarding the air intake you have to oil the filter occasionally or you can choose to reinstall the original tube and airbox. Some people claim the filter in the picture does not do as good a job of cleaning as a good paper filter.

If you want to see how bad that filter works remove it and see/feel the grit/crud stuck to the inside of the pipe the filter is clamped too
That crud is a tiny fraction of the crap that filter passes into the engine do to its poor filtering
