Default 1996 Jeep ZJ Build

So I bought my first Jeep about a month ago and I love it so far. Bone stock 1996 with 147000 on it and a stack of every maintenance record imagined.

This is the day I bought it running and driving great (just cant drive two cars at once haha)

First day in I painted all the fading plastic and discovered a small pin hole leak in the lower radiator hose easy fix. Tinted the lights and cleaned it up.

As of yesterday it has a 2.25" spacer up front, a set of front coils in the rear with one coil cut off, mb wheels and some beat up bfgs

Plans forward are is to install the 242 t case I have in my garage this Friday. Lose the cv axle shafts in favor of the u joint style and find some new front seats because mine are torn up

Couple issues I haven't dove into yet is the dimmer switch does not work so all my gauges are dim at night (bad headlight switch?) and none of the interior lights work (bad fuse?)

So this is my first jeep so I am open to any and all recommendations to make this a reliable and fun rig
