92 Yj bulid prep

Hello! New to the Jeep threads been reading around alot and seeing a ton of beastly Jeeps. Hoping to get mine there this year. I bought a 92 YJ 4.0 Inline 6 needing a little TLC. As of now I've done little work on it do to the sub-zero weather Michigan has been having lately. So since its in the mid 30's for most of this week kinda reminded me that it's going to get warm sooner or later and that when that time comes I need to be ready.
I'm looking for cheaper alternatives for my YJ as well as a little guidance. This is my first Jeep don't know to much anout them other then what a book tells me. I'mnot planning on doing nothing to crazy as I want her for a everyday driver but I love to do a little off roading every once in a while.
I'm on the hunt for some items. Depending on which ones I'm able to find will make the difference in what I do with her.
Here's a list of what i need and can think of.

Pair of full steel doors no rust please.
Radiator with steel tanks.
Windshield no rust.

I bought this from a friend who took really good care of it. I have a couple issues that I'm stumped on.

My 4high doesn't work.
My radiator leaks in a couple spots.
My idler pulley keeps squeaking even after replacing it.

Anything and everything will help

-Adam

Welcome
Doors are expensive and rare, no aftermarket full ones avail. You can find most other things available aftermarket.
Be sure before you start into it to deep that you go over the frame look for rot. And pull up the carpet and have a peak :|
As for your issues, belt to tight?, 4wd check the vacuum line to the actuator. For many other things this forum has alot of info buried

Thank you guys!

The original owner pulled the carpet as soon as he bought it, thank god. The fame is in amazing shape no rust holes. You can see a little bit of surface rust that I'll be fixing when it hits 60 degrees or higher. The only rust spot I can find is on the windshield. The Jeep came up from down south And stayed in a barn for two years or so. As for the pully I believe it has the right amount of tension on it. It has some give but not to much ill get the measurements of the give on the belt soon.

Heres a pic of her. Not nothing special yet
