Default Buying a 2018 JK

I am looking at 2 different Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sort JKs to buy both are 2018. One of them has 13k and the other 18k miles. Is there anything in particular I should be looking at when buying other than the fluids? Thanx!

Also, obviously I am new here!

Both stock? if they were lifted already, it would make a difference trying to determine what is installed on both of them.

What gear ratio does each have? If they are different, you want the one with the higher number. 3.73 are better than 3.21.

For me the Heavy Duty Tow Package with 3.73 Gears and Limited Slip would make one an easy pick over the other.
If one had Limited Slip and the other did not, that would also be a factor for me.
The mileage would not factor in when both are that low.
You did not mention the tops. I would go hardtop over soft top also.
If none of the above applies, pick the one that looks best to you.
