Arrow Considering an '01 Cherokee - Need Insight

Hey Jeep folks, I need some insight from you all.

I have been in the process of changing needs, one of which includes divesting myself of my 2007 Dodge Ram in favor of a vehicle with AWD or 4WD. One friend highly recommends the Toyota RAV4 (w/ V6) while another suggests an older Jeep XJ. I have been researching both vehicles and, after more discussions with other parties, concluded the Jeep is the better buy for me due to my budget. Also, I'll mainly drive it during the nasty weather that strikes central Oklahoma in the winter months.

I found what I believe to be the perfect candidate. It is a 2001 Jeep Cherokee 4-door Sport with the following features:
  • 4.0L Engine
  • Air Conditioning
  • Power Lock, Power Window, Power Mirror, Power Brake, Power Steering
  • AM/FM Radio, CD Player
  • Bucket Seating, Alloy Wheel, Keyless Remote Entry, Rear Window Defroster, Tow Package, Rear Wiper, Roof Rack, Tachometer, Trip Odometer, Variable Speed Wiper
  • Cruise Control, Tilt
  • Driver Air Bag, Passenger Air Bag, ABS Brake
It has 138,000 miles and is super clean inside and out. No dents or scuff marks plus, it's been lifted just a few inches. My cousin lives near the dealer and is going to check it out for me (I'm about 100 miles away). Aside from the usual physical inspection items, are there any issues common to these vehicles that I should be aware of? Head gaskets, smog equipment, or electrical?

Thanks, and here are some pictures of the vehicle in question.
