New to me: 95 Wrangler

So, I started out looking for beater to drive during the winter so my expensive car would be safe in the garage. I was thinking old Honda, Toyota, something conventional. Then we found a beautifully refurbished 1946 Willy's for sale near us. Not what I was looking for, but oh my was it handsome. Ended up missing the deal by 24 hours. Still, was completely hooked on the idea of a Jeep. Looked for another week and lucked into a 1995 Wrangler. We've neither one had a Jeep before, but one of us is pretty competent with engines, mechanics, etc. so now we are looking for maybe an electronic version (PDF) of the owner's manual, recommendations on service/repair manuals (we bought Haynes last night). Mostly little things need to be fixed like some dash lights (how do you get to them); the parking brake pedal sticks a little when it's released (the brake itself seems to release fine); the door locks feel sluggish when the key is turned, particularly the driver's side. Stuff that should be fairly simple to take care of ourselves. Engine is good, new rubber; and, WHAT A BLAST TO DRIVE!

Would appreciate any direction or help from anybody. Kansas winter is coming on fast.

Thanks.
