Talking San Diego newb

just bought: 1990 4.2 5-speed with rough country lift kit and 33" tires. dash lights are out, fuel gauge is busted, and looks like the valve cover gasket is leaking oil. It's loud as hell and everything rattles. It's everything I was looking for. Any suggestions on what to do first? i.e.: preventative maintenance, fun mods? recovery mods? Also, looking for new seats, the ones on it are being held together with duct tape.

Welcome from Long Beach cali,
My suggestion would be fluid changes. You never know if the PO took care of the jeep properly. That's where I would start.
Congrats on the jeep.
