Talking Newb from Houston & Just got my first car. its a 1997 wrangler with V8

My parents and I just bought a 1997 jeep wrangler with a 2002 dodge magnum 5.9 V8. We got it for 8,500 and i paid about 15%. Its moss Green, and started life as a 4cyl, so i have 4.10 gears (correct me if im wrong). It also has a 2" lift on 31" tires with American racing wheels. The PO also pulled a steering box out of (what i think was) an old jeep wagoneer so it steers really nice.

The work it needs is as follows-
-Custom Fan Shroud
-Lengthened rear drive shaft
-New tires
-New top
-rear tire carrier
-2&1/2" front springs so it sits level with the heavy engine.
