First Time Jeep Owner In Washington

So, I just bought my first jeep this weekend. It's a red '88 Wrangler Laredo. It has a 4" spring lift, 33" BFG's on black Rockcrawler rims. It came with 4 tops for $3500. It was originally throttle body injection but a previous owner converted it to a 2brl Weber carb. It has the 4.2l w/ 5spd tranny. All glass is good and body is straight. I do need to replace the right front fender as it has some serious cancer. Also the driver's rear corner is starting to go. I think that's due to where gas has spilled over the years when refueling. A few issues so far...idiot lights for "brake" and "emiss maint" are stuck on. The "brake" indicator goes out sometimes and I think the "emiss" light is due to the carb conversion. Anybody know how to DC the "emiss" light? I think the "brake" light is a pressure issue somewhere??? Here's a few pics...
