New Jeep Owner

First of I'd like to say hello to all of you, I've seen alot of really nice jeeps on the fourm and alot of great info aswell. I have been a long time jeep lover and after staring at ad after ad and making calls all week i finaly have found a seller that was acutally willing to sell their jeep. I don't know what the deal is with people posting for sale ad's on Craigslist and when you call them the've decided to keep their jeep or it's no longer for sale, i suppose its just a jeep thing. I met up with a guy yesterday and finally got my hands on a decent jeep. its a 1996 cherokee 5-Speed with 80,7xx. I'm sure several of the questions I have may seem uneducated and thats because they are haha.

this jeep will be some what my daily/trail vehicle.

is there anything you guys can suggest to get me started on this project ?
I plan on doing the standard tune up on it plugs,wires,air filter, front and rear diff fluid and transfercase fluids. and id also like to get a new clutch/pressureplate and throwout. Is there any recomendations for diff and transfercase fluids you all recomend 80/90 ?

Im looking into a lift for it seems there are a lot of cheap lifts that Ireally dont feel comfortable with being the reviews are somewhat lacking.

thanks in advance for the comments and suggestions, I should have some pictures up soon.
