Howdy, y'all. I just picked up my first Jeep. It's a '99 2.5L with about 500 miles on a rebuilt motor. A couple of noob questions, if you don't mind:

First, what should I do during the initial "break-in" period on the engine? Valve adjustments? Tightening the valve cover?

What's the preferred maintenance manual out there?

I've got a couple of finicky zippers on the soft top. What's the best way of forcing them into submission?

Electric fan set-up: worth it, or not? (I live in Texas).

What's a good source for a fan-speed control rotary switch?

Also, what's the consensus on full synthetic oil?

Any and all advice greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
