Purchasing 08 jeep srt8 any tips?

Hey guys. I'm looking at a 08 jeep. It's very clean. It has 98000 km. I was wondering if I should be aware of any major issues with that mileage. I know the transfer case. Diffs and tranny fluid should be done. Any other things to look for.

Thanks.

Look out for a vibration at 70-80 mph. Good luck!

It has 22 inch wheels on it. The factory replicas. They are relatively new so I think that's all good. What would the vibration be from besides tires. Oh and it's lowered with b woody springs on the factory shocks.

No, there is a pretty well known vibration that a few guys have that they don't know what its from and can not get rid of it after spending thousands and thousands of dollars. Just make sure if you test drive it, the steering wheel doesnt shake at those speeds.

Check for abnormal front tire wear on the inside edges. I dont know if this is an issue with the different wheels and tires but on stock wheels with the runflats, many people (including me) have had a tire seperation issue on the inside edge.
