Hello! New Jeep Owner Here

Hey everyone!

I am the proud new owner of a slightly used 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd. I am not sure, but I believe I am the 4th owner if the records are right. It's a little rough around the edges with 156000 miles but that just adds character. The maintenance manual is current upto 112K miles so up until then it looks like it was fairly well taken care of.

It's nice to meet you all and I have just one question. Is there anything I should know or look out for in particular? I'm not afraid of maintenance (my other cars are an 84 Trans Am and 67 Camaro) and I know every car has it's quirks but is there anything that jeeps are "known for" that I should pay special attention to? Thanks in advance for any advice and help!
