First make sure the body doesnt have any rust on it since that may cause problems with MOT. Check the fluids to see if they look dirty,check the oil to see if its dark and that its at the propel level,check air filter. Check every single electrical device on the jeep, lights, turn signals, radio, power windows,locks, etc. and make sure they work properly. If its been dealer serviced,then ask for the service record and any past service records. Take it for a test drive and note any issues with the steering,brakes etc. If everything goes well, then you can proceed to make an offer. Good Luck
