I just picked up a 93 ZJ 5.3l. It has been sitting in the hot sun for 2 years and i want to clean the vital parts and change fluids. What should I check or refill. Im going to change the oil and filter, plugs. It started right up with a new battery and sounded strong. I just dont want to miss something and ruin the engine or anything else. Any suggestions will help. Im going to go through the manual tonight.

If it were me, I'd likely change every fluid and filter:
Oil
coolant
transmission
t-case
differentials
brake fluid
power steering fluid

And I'd take a very close look at any rubber hose and/or belt. Check your brake lines closely to make sure they haven't started to crack. Pump the brakes a few times to get the pressure up on them. Oh yeah, was the gas tank drained before it was parked?

What he said.

And pour a tiny bit of oil down each spark plug and turn it over with the plugs out before you try to start it.. IN case the oil ring has gotten dry
