My first YJ!

Hey guys, got my first yj about a week ago, it's an 89 with the 4.2 with manual trans. I bought it after it had been sitting for 2 years without turning a tire. The interior was pretty dirty and had stickers everywhere and the engines all greasy but the trans is new and everything works. So today I changed the oil and drained the tank and put new fuel into it and she fired right up with no issues, i was quite impressed. I also took the carpet and seats out and pressure washed and cleaned this ***** out of them and they came out not to bad, I peeled all the stickers off and did a few other little things, But what I'm really excited for is the lift and tires/rims to get here. I went with a Fabtech 3.5" and 33"X12.5 DC's and ultrawheel drifter rims. I will post before and after pics when it's done( next Friday rims and tires will be here).

Now I do have a question, what year blazer do I get a blower motor for my jeep? We get some pretty cool winters(-35) and think I'm gunna want it when I go play in the snow.

Thanks guys I'm looking forward to input and I love the site.
