The only thing I would do is run some fluid through it. Fill it up drain it out. Just incase something made its way inside while sitting. If you are going to open it up replace all the case bearings and inspect the syncros.

I bought a lsd tranny with 250,000 miles for 125 and the thing was just rebuilt!!! I would do a flush on it though if the holes havent been covered up.

since its out, you should consder reinforcing the hollow factory areas on the tranny with jb weld. its where the passenger side shafts inserts on the tranny. cracked mine just on wheel hop.

^^ what he said, wheel hop will crack a tranny casing quick.
i would use 3m window weld in stead of jb weld.
fill it in around the spaces where the pass. side axle goes in
