I bought it with the lift done and 3000 miles on the ticker and it was in perfect shape. As far as keeping it that way, I bought it in the fall tucked it away in heated storage and started it once a month to keep things lubed. Now that I have it out of storage, I never drive it in the rain or when rain threatens. I've never touched the paint, I shut the doors touching only the plastic on the door handles. Always turn the vent on after I've run the A/C to blow the condensation out of the evaporator/ductwork so it never starts to smell musty (tip from the original owner). I have towels down in the interior anytime I drive it, even though it has seat covers. I've added the tow mirrors and nerf bars and have a ton of parts to install over the next several weeks/months.
As far as power, I don't want to throw out numbers cause that will just set me up for a fall, but with the work and parts going into the motor, it should do pretty well once the tuning is sorted out.
