    Welcome @minis59 ....the XJ 6cyl has a reputation for lasting a long time. Proper maintenance goes a long way to ensure that. Tackle the leaks, replace fluids and correct the suspension issues and you should have a good rig.

    Plenty of suspension parts to inspect for wear and looseness. The Jeep is over 20 yr old and these wear items may need replacement including the steering stabilizer and various bushings that are not in the picture.
