New to me Jeep, project begins

Hey guys.
Started reading some threads a few months back when I started looking for a YJ or TJ.
I used to have a 1998 TJ Sahara about 5 years ago. Purely bought it to get me through a winter while I had two Mustangs and a motorcycle. It was stock minus some tires.

I am picking up a 1994 YJ 4.0 5spd on saturday.
I was being picky, I didnt want a 2.5L, no automatics, and no heavy body or frame rust, and not overpriced.
Took a bit to find one, but glad I waited. Black on black hard top.
It has offroad style flat front fenders, not sure what they style is called.
Black steel 15" wheels, very new Bridgestone AT's.
This one has 130k on it. And the frame is very clean, and the tub only has some surface rust on the floor pans- no carpet.
Needs a rear wheel cylinder to make it road ready.
I already ordered all the brake parts for it- calipers, pads, rotors, hoses, master cylinder, booster, wheel cylinders, drums, shoes, etc.
This winter I will bring it into my shop and replace a bunch of front end stuff- ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings/hubs, sway bar links, u-joints, etc.
Basically go through all the wear items on the chassis, clean stuff up, paint a bunch of components.
Also will be doing a full tune up, powerwashing the chassis, cleaning up the engine bay etc.



Any thing in particular I should look into right away?
I dont plan to lift it very high, or put huge tires on it.
I bought it mostly as a back up vehicle, if I need to work on my truck, I can still have a vehicle to drive.
Also, it will serve well as a winter vehicle for my GF.

Thanks for any tips!
