New to jeeps need some help

I purchased a 2004 tj with 55k on it off of a friend who got him self in some financial trouble. I cant say I am at all disappointing with it. I love the thing and reminds me of my power wheel when I was a little kid.

1) issue number 1 is that it starts shaking like crazy from 45-50 but then just smooths out. the tires are slightly cupped from the prior owner not rotating them.

2) The jeep has a lift kit but I am not sure of the brand. The prior owner bought it with low millage and it had the lift already in it. I would like to know the brand of lift so if or when I need parts I can get them. Is there a way to identify the different brands? I know its black and has blistein shocks.

3) the screws on the front windshield that run all the way across and the one ones on that hold the part around the gas filler neck are bleeding on to the paint. I was wondering if any one knows where I can get a stainless set or at least what size they are so I can order a set.

pictures of said jeep. Sorry if I said something that is not correct like I said I am new to jeeps.

1) prolly the tires as stated or could be the early signs of Death Wobble. See sticky at the top of the tj forum

2) You will just have to pour over every inch of lift to look for a stamp or left over sticker, but most parts are interchangable. between lifts. Many on here mix and match to get the lift they want.

3) just remove one screw and take it to a hardware store and buy stanless
