1998 Ford Explorer Sport

I am going to college soon and I am looking for my first car. I came across a 1998 Ford Explorer Sport with 48k miles. It is 9grand. I have never owned a Ford and neither has my family, however we own jeeps and I am concerned about what I should look for in an explorer.

What kind of gas mileage can I expect from the 4.0 sohc?
What kind of rear ends come in the explorer? Are they all the 9inch?
I probably will be adding a lift later on, How much suspension lift would I need to fit 31's or 32s?
What stock gears should I be looking for if I plan on lifting it?
How much does it generally cost for the suspension lifts?
Any known mechanical failures/ problems?
Is there any other things I should know about Eplorers?
Should I be going with a different year? Or the 5.0?

Thanks in Advance.

Matt
