new to me jeep wrangler!

I just bought a new to me tj 1999 i6 4.0l A3 wrangler. I had a 95 I4 yj m5 for the last 2 years that I just sold. This 99 is just a whole new beast. I love it!! The other jeep was just a winter vehicle that I barely drove. Now with this one I want to actually keep it. Before I get around to buying things for it, does anyone have a suggested DIY mods or maintenance that I should do? it is the automatic with 117K miles on it.

I also have a couple issues I want to fix, if anyone has a link or anything, I am new to this forum. I own a buell xb12r and Im on the buell forum everyday and I'm hoping this forum will be the same.

Problems- windshield wipers move slow, never fast, not even on high speed.
-heat takes a while to get hot, low works, second works, the third setting the fan shuts off..., and high works.

luckily for me this seems to be the two major things.

i look forwards to this!!

I've found this to be a pretty informative source on everything Wrangler:

Have fun with your new toy!

The wipers could be the switch. They are easy to swap, I just recently put a delay switch in place of my 2 speed switch.

The fan speed could be the resistor pack in the heated box under the glove box.
