my first jeep.

hey guys, i just picked up my first jeep. im located in south jersey, im 23 and my previous cars have been a 03 altima and a 91 240sx, this is my 3rd car and my first domestic, i really just woke up one day and decided i wanted a wrangler so here we are. i just bought a 94 4 cylinder yj, in mint condition with 67k on it. even has factory radio. jeeps in great shape has new rad, battery, came with hard top and softop,full doors and half doors, new 4 inch lift with 31'' bf goodrich all terrains on it. ive had it only for 2 days now and i love it. tommorrow i will do some maintenence on it including oil change, new spark plugs and wires. new air filter, changing tranny fluid(5 speed), transfer case fluid, front and rear diff fluid, and giving it a good wash. im mechanically inclinced if i do say so myself, but have never worked on a jeep or even been around one. i appreciate any tips or tricks with these cars and other cheap maintence i can do to keep this baby running like a champ for the rest of my life that im going to own it

im debating two things right now that i would appreciate your input on
1.) are the stock headlights adequate or should i do an h4 hid conversion?

im a hid guru so please dont give me a lecture on legalities or right or wrong ways to convert them. i take my time to aim them properly and make sure oncoming traffic is not blinded. just want to know if you have hids in your jeep and if you don't, if the stock lights are adequate

2.) are cold air intakes worth it?

i have read alot of useful information on this forum already and just want your opinion(those that swear by them or those that dont) i've had short ram and cold air intakes in both my previous cars but their factory airboxes were very restrictive, the wrangler one looks pretty good.

thanks and i hope to become a regular poster and an asset to this forum
