New Guy Aboard...

Hey everybody, my name is Anthony and I'm new to the forum... I just purchased a 1994 Wrangler and I want to start working on it before winter, so hopefully you all can give me a hand. Just a little bit of info about myself and my truck... I am 19 years old and I am a full-time student and an EMT. My truck is a 1994 Wrangler/S I4 with a manual trans and 180000 miles. My goals are- First, make the truck last the winter. This is most important. Second, if it lasts, build it into an off-road truck. That's not till next season though. Like I said, I need it to last the winter. It needs a new clutch, radiator, front sway bar brackets, a new power steering pump, a new battery, and a new wiring harness for the headlights. That's just for starters. Speaking of which, I would love to replace the starter (weak), the front windshield (cracked), the radio (doesn't work), and the tach (missing). So that's my truck. It runs a little rough, too. Got this ticking noise that my old Nissan 240SX had... Anyway, so what do you think? My first Jeep. Anyone know anything about that headlight wiring harness? My lights dim out all the time. I checked the contacts (clean and connected), and the lights reach normal intensity when I jiggle the wires. I know the wires are bad... Do the headlights have their own harness, or would I have to replace the entire engine wiring harness? It's stuff like this that drives me crazy...

Thanks for the welcome and no, I did not get it for free. I found it on the side of the road in a rural area, called the number on it, and purchased it for $1400. Hey Doc Dave, do you know where I can pick up one of those harnesses? I can imagine that Chrystler will charge like 200 bucks, and I can't find one on e-bay..
