Default New to Jeeps. What to expect?

Greetings. Just bought a 99 Grand Cherokee Limited with 100K. Fully loaded (leather, dual climate, infinty gold stereo,etc.) 4.7 with k/n cold air intake, 4X4 , new 245 70 16's. One owner and garage kept. Question is ... What can I expect as far as driving characteristics, things to watch out for etc? Replacing oem steering dampener this weekend, also gonna order addco 684 sway bar for back with greasable mounts. Just had ceramic brakes all around and rotors put on. I've never owned a Jeep til now and so far very pleased. ANy advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
P.s. It has a full size brush gaurd. Will this cause any additional body roll and should I put heavier duty shocks on it? It now has monroe sens tracs.

i am trying to get as many people as I can to get together at Barnwell in Gilmer Tx, the friday after Thanksgiving and saturday. I know there is some coming from Louisiana and south texas, plus some locals. I will be on Channel 22 on friday while i am up there. I also have this app on my phone, so I should be able to check it often. It should be scattered showers friday, but I am expecting a good turn out. Let me know if anyone is down. I have a list of forsures going from other Threads and sites.
