Howdy from up north

Hi folks, just picked up a '95 Wrangler YJ Sahara (4L, manual) as a bit of a fun / project vehicle, which is something I've been wanting to do since I first drove one in high school (which was a couple of reunions ago

I've hummed and hawed on one for years, especially since I also have a fun / project 84 Jimmy (which is probably going to get sold now.)

I've read through lots of the forum postings and will be looking at the cheap / easy mods thread, which is really useful since mine seems pretty stock other than the aftermarket tube bumpers.

So, besides the cheap / easy mods, what would be some of the first things / mods / upgrades you'd do to a "new to you" Jeep? (Other than the obvious things like fluid & filter replacements, hose & belt checks, etc, etc.) Tires are in good shape so those will stay as is for now.

The thing that's most important to me is having a rock-solid vehicle that's super reliable, especially in the crappy, snowy, cold winters we get up here. I don't care too much about looks right now. That will come later.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or ideas you have.

Welcome! I am also pretty new to all of this, so I will let some of the veterans point you in the right direction. Sounds like a great project. Enjoy

Blessings
