Smile 1989 Laredo make over! (help appreciated)

So i bought a 1989 jeep Laredo about a year ago, it sat for a little bit because the back reg was over 600$ ive put new brake lines, new brakes all around, new tires, new steering box ( no more leaking! ) new hoses, new plugs,wires, cap and rotor, oil changed less then 500miles, it is a EFI 4.0l inline 6, when i bought it it needed a lot of work, and still does. now that taxes are right around he corner i plan on putting some money into her, hope i can get some help on here. im pretty new to all this, im 22 live with my wife and kid in Yosemite national park we've done some great 4x4 up here and id like to do more. i currently ordered a drop arm for the steering issues, it has a stock one still, the guy i got it from had no idea what he was doing with this jeep, wires were all out of place, temp sensor isn't hooked up, it was a big mess, ive gotten this far by myself and hope for more assistance. okay any more questions about the jeep itself, feel free to ask, im currently having problems with the blower, ive checked the resistor, it looks okay but i ordered a new one anyways the one i took out seems kind of out of date, ive traced all the wires to the switch and all wires are fine, no burns, so im guessing its the blower motor itself, the resistor is on the way so we will see if that fixes it, but it stopped blowing on all speeds which leads me to believe its the motor? going to be posting lots of pic's here in a few, of all the problems. so maybe someone can help thanks for taking the time to read this and i hope after i get some pictures up i can get things going with this! thanks

You need to be more specific, I now know its an automatic because you have a dipstick for the tranny, what ya got? A 3" lift and 31's, why do you think you need a drop pitman arm, whats it doing when you drive? Your wiring issue can be answered in the cherokee tech threads, do a search and you will pull up all the threads that describe your problem. So in this thread your questions will answered about the set up of your jeep, lift, tires, gears, lockers, fender flares, bumpers. ect....My brother has a late 80's cherokee, and he had a bunch of issues with his lights and gauges, so he figured out that his master cylinder was leaking brake fluid all over the wiring harness connector located just under it in the fire wall. He fixed the leak, cleaned out the connections /connectors as best as he could and vwalla... it was fixed...hope this helps you!
