Would you buy a car with this recent work done?
Looking at a vehicle on ksl and saw that it has a bunch of recent work done:

"new heavy-cast Clearwater head and head gasket, new radiator, water pump, thermostat, intake and exhaust manifold gaskets, new shocks, and a newly rebuilt NP 231J transfer case with slip yoke eliminator"

I asked the guy about it and he said:

"It overheated early this year. The guy I bought it from thought it was a radiator, so he replaced it along with the water pump. It did nothing. I'm a mechanic at a dodge dealership and when he brought it to me, I diagnosed a blown head gasket. He didn't want to sink any more money into it so I bought it with the intention of installing a head gasket and selling it. When I pulled off the head, it was cracked so I replaced it with an upgrade. Once the head was off, I replaced the intake and exhaust man gaskets and thermostat. Got it running and drove it only to find the shocks were completely gone so I replaced the fronts. I have the rears but haven't installed them. Back on the road, I found it wouldn't go into 4X4 because the transfer case was bad. I took it out to rebuild it but it had a huge hole in the case so I bought a reman and installed a slip yoke eliminator to keep it from happening again. I've had it about a month. "

What else should I be worried about or asking?
