What are you views on wheel spacers to help prevent rollovers with a wider stance, this question is to anyone willing to give their opinion and back it up.

The jeep is mine, I now have a CJ daily driver. The transaction wasn't exactly smooth I traded the car and then began to look at the jeep. Had some rust issues, nothing frame related. The person before the previous owner painted over some rust with the flat black paint so I was able to get another 1200 bucks added to cover any repairs so I think I did good. engine runs like a beast, I have to get the high lift shackles out before I take it places though.

The first change i want to make other than the shackles are disc brakes, any suggestions?

He is asking a little much for it. But i have a 78 cj5 with a 360, 3 speed with 4inchlift with 33's. i can do 65 easly on the highway. got it up to about 85(max on the spedo) just to see what it could do. I use mine as a dailey driver when its not winter due to no heat in it. But i have the old manual steering and it drives fine down the highway. It gets alittle bumpy inspots but nothing to crazy.
Also i have that leak and it is the window seal i am almost positive. I took a water bottle and dumped it in various places and found it was the weather seal.
