My advice once you get it home - change out all fluids (coolant, oil, diffs, tranny, transfer case, etc.).
Do a compression test on the engine to verify valve timing. Post your results.
Replace plugs and gap them to .028”.
Make sure tires are filled to about 23psi.
Confirm that the check engine light is on with the key on, and off when running. I don’t know if the engine ever threw any codes, but you may want to put in the diagnostic jumper, get the codes, and then erase them by removing the dome light fuse for a minute to erase whatever is in memory, and then get the codes again. Code 12 means that the computer doesn’t see any major faults. Some instructions here, or ask:

And enjoy.
