Talking My first jeep

Hey Everyone! A week ago I bought my first jeep after completing college...a pretty good graduation present to myself if i do say so myself. I bought a 1987 YJ with a 4.2 258cu.in 6 cylinder with a AX 15 5-speed tranny. I'm pretty excited to get started learning everything I can about it. Any good sites or book suggestions? Unfortunatly the truck didn't come with much paperwork so I dont know when its been serviced last so i'm thinking a fluids change might be the best thing to start with. the motors got 164,000 miles on it, any suggestions on oil weight? I'm thinking of going with something a little heavier.
