A new project? Rubicon 4x4

An early 2000 Rubicon just posted locally for around $500. It runs. Please let me know what I should look for when I go to look at it. It looks like the front driveshaft is removed, why? Seat is bad, maybe some plastic parts. Otherwise it looks ok. Frankenwheeler was in much worse shape.

If it doesn't pull then pass on it. The early Rubicons had faulty oil pumps that would make the Hondamatic fail, and the Hondamatic is a $1200, non servicable part.

Front driveshaft being removed says the driveshaft or front diff were bad.
