I like it. Looks nice. I'm not fond of the grill guard though. Looks like it's had some mods already. How's the interior? I suppose start with what you want first.

Looks like a nice rig. Since it already has the 8.8 rear in it, that alone saved you some time & money. My rig has the same grill cover, I took it off & sprayed it with black bedliner. I'm mot a fan of chrome on a Jeep, but that's just my preference.

As for what to do to it... What does it need? Does it run/drive good? A good tune up is always a good thing, maybe replace some leaking gaskets & change all of the fluids. General maintenance, stuff like that for starters.

Looks sweet! Congrats! Im not positive on this and it might not even matter but I think your front shackles may be backwards?

Drive it, wheel it and see what you like/dont like. Then go from there. More lights are always nice and easy if you wheel at night. LED tail lights are pretty cool and the reverse lights on mine are almost as bright as some headlights. Makes it nice when I have to back out of trails. If your planning on wheeling much start collecting recovery gear and think about a winch. You can just get a mounting plate for it instead of a whole bumper... But definitely get yourself a good tow strap at least and a hilift jack is a life saver at times.

The boomerang shackles are installed correctly. I agree on getting rid of the body lift, but the boomerang shackles are an upgrade. Use them in combination with whatever suspension lift you end up running.

You can go to jeep.com and request a build sheet. They will email it to you.

I just got it a buddy of mine works at a jeep dealership so he was able to get it. Next I want a car fax too see who owned it before the guy I bought it from and see what he can tell me.
