New to the Jeep world

Hello my name is Russ, i just recently purchased a 1994 Jeep Wrangler S. So far i really love it. I have done a good bit of work to it as the guy i got it from had a ton of stuff just rigged up. It had 3 lights on a bar on the hood, 1 on each front wheel well, and 3 on the front bumper, none of witch worked. So i took the 3 on the hood off as they did block your vision. Then traced the wires for the others down and replaced them all. The old wires had splices and bad grounds everywhere. The Rear bumper was held on with two one inch welds that were cracked so i had to weld the bumper solid. It also had the normal frame rot at the rear bumper so had to Box that all in as well as a small patch just in front of the rear driver side wheel in the frame. It had broken door handles so i made some out of para cord. While i was at it i made new door limiter straps and a roll bar grab handle for each side. The radio was grounded out to a power source and the speakers were just ran on top the carpet and sitting not even in boxes. So i fixed the radio and hid the speaker wires and put the speakers in boxes. I just ordered a tune up kit(plugs, wires, cap, roter, air filter, fuel filter, oil filter) and need to get that in as soon as possible, as my motor has a stutter and looses power at 2000 rpm. Hoping this fixes the issue. I cleaned the PCV valve and replaced the hose because it was cracked and that really helped out how it ran. My only issues now are the motor stutter and my front seat belts are locked all the way out. Need to figure out how to take them off the roll bar. Anyway Thanks for reading and look forward to getting to know the forum.

Welcome to the Forum, there are lot's of great people and ideas here! And don't forget "The Wave"!
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
