Going to look at Possible Purchase 1990 XJ 4.0 Renix Tomorrow. Tips?

so im going to look at a 1990 XJ 4.0 AX15 5spd 4x4 tomorrow.

Here is the listing

1990 Cherokee 4.0 with 4 inch lift, 33 all terrains, 5 speed manual, 4x4. Black/camo/blue. Great Woods truck. Slight bumper and grill damage, nothing serious. Driven daily, just need gone. Looking for 800 obo, or trade for daily driver. NEED GONE BY FRIDAY!!!!!!!! Listening to ANY offers, don't hesitate to call or text.

Problems he told me: Tires need balanced. No problem my friend owns tire shop
Tail Shaft Seal leaking.. No problem easy 15 dollar fix right?

He said there is no Rust. I cant believe it if there isnt Ill drop dead.
He said drives like a champ
Said it never runs hot since he bypassed the Overflow... Is that all it takes?
Rear Axle is a D35
Tires have 3/4 tread

So what else should I look for other then obvious oil leakage, overheating, fluid leaking, Rough running, Rust....

Im thinking if it actually runs good and is in decent shape ill offer him 600 cash see if he bites.

You do realize that because it is a 2-door you get an extra stamp on your Man-Card? Unless it has been converted to an "open system" is doesn't have an "overflow" bottle, it is OEM a "closed system" with a pressure bottle and no cap on the radiator.

Yes 2 door because I wanna be cool!

good point joe. I will defiantly look at that. Didnt even think about the overflow only being on a the newer open system. That would be an added bonus for sure.

Agreed... if it isn't rusty, and runs well, go for it.

That d35's gotta go though.

3.07 and 33's with a 5spd is no pleasure either, but for 800$ it sounds like a great deal.
