Getting a 08 WK CRD Tomorrow

hey all!

I am getting our new Jeep tomorrow @ 11 a.m. What should I look for mechanically, body, etc? Anything electrical know to be an issue? I plan to bring my ODB scanner from GDE (we have a tuned 05 KJ CRD).

She has 152xxx miles. The motor that engages the 4WD went up during (or just before) the test drive, dealer replaced...

I'm trying to arrange a cold start, just hoping the thing isn't sitting indoors plugged in / trickle charging..

Thanks for looking....

Did you get it? Any issues so far?
I've had an 07 for about a month now and so far so good.

We just got our 08 CRD last week and we just love it. Traded a 2011 xterra that we were attached to but this thing is winning us over

Yeah we got it. It's been pretty good. Overheated the tranny once, downshifting going down the mountain (we live at 2300 ft, town is at 800 ft). Had tranny flushed, it still throws codes, not looking to rebuild. We had the 4wd low actuator replaced before we bought it. and there is a whine in the HVAC blower motor.
