Looking at a CRD

So I have a line on a very nice 2006 CRD with 125000 miles. I know next to nothing about these rigs although I do know that the fuel economy is great for the room that you get in the vehicle.
Are there things that I should look for? Has this been a reliable platform? Any insight would be great. Thanks!

Did you try looking at the LostJeep.com website. Lots of good information. The trick to a Jeep is the timing belt needs changed every 100k miles and it is $800 if you do it yourself. Add $600 if you have to pay someone.
Mine has 60k grease miles and 133k total miles. They like to be driven hard and on the highway. They also need a few modifications for them to keep running good. I spent less than $20 on the mods. In 60k miles I have changed timing belt, ball joints, tires, battery, thermostat, oil and filters. I paid someoe to do the timing belt and ball joints.
I like the 2006 model better than the 05.
