1995 zj restoration

Hello All,

I just got back from college and found the Grand Cherokee stored in my dads warehouse. After a quick jump start she turned over, I was amazed that after three years of sitting and even with a half tank of gas in it there were no serious problems.

I'd like some maintenance tips and or easy/cheap upgrades/replace parts that will ensure my baby runs strong for a long time. I'd like to thank you all for any recommendations provided.

Some quick maintenance I've done to her already: Oil change and oil filter. I replaced coolant, power steering, and windshield fluid. New air filter, drove the Jeep until only a 1/4 of the old gas was left filled her up with premium and added a full bottle of Gumout fuel system cleaner. Finally, an alignment.

Things to do: ordered new champion spark plugs and Taylor spark plug wires. Don't have a clue after that.

Here are some before and after photos enjoy!

What kind of spark plugs? I've heard mixed things.
Congrats on your ZJ. It's a wild adventure.
