'90 Cherokee, New To Me, Questions...

'90 Cherokee Pioneer, Bone Stock...

Hadn't run in a year, previous owner said it got hit by lightening,
Took a buddy with me, turned out to be a crank sensor, which I understand is so common he took one with him when we looked at it...

Runs and drives now, But I have a couple of questions and could use a rundown on the fuel system, transmission, transfer case, ect. since it's about zero outside and I don't want to crawl under it!

Any maintenance specifics I need to do or look for?

A wheel bearing is going out in the rear axle,
Dana 35 as near as I can tell.
Any recommendations?

If it wasn't an issue, would any of you recommend swapping that D-35 for a Ford 9"?

It's got a miss at idle, just off idle,
Runs OK at 45 MPH and up, Anything specific I should be looking for?

Anyone know of an online service manual?
