Just became a wrangler owner

Hey guys, I'm usually on the WK forum but I picked up an 04 TJ 4.0 manual last week so I guess I'll be lurking around here too. It's in good shape over all, lifted with 35's blah blah blah heavy duty front and rear bumpers. Previous owner was a snow bird so it was stored inside every winter. Not much rust at all and pretty low miles.
Starting to get my tinker on. Changed plugs and oil the other day, plugs had a bit of schmegmer on them so I think I might try the seafoam treatment. Fixed the e-brake linkage. Also the mechanical fan was replaced with an electric but it is operated by switch and the wife has let it get hot twice already so I am looking for a thermostatic switch, just not sure what kind I want to use. There's a little bit of shake at higher speeds and the headlights are searching for UFO's. Tried to adjust the lites but the screws are rotted and stripped. I greased the chassis and have numerous blown boots which, I'm assuming is not helping the shake.
I take my WK out on the southern RI beaches fishing a lot and it can get sketch some times so it's comforting to know if I get the WK stuck I can call my wife to pull me out.....

Pics show up sideways because this site doesn't like phone pics taken in portrait orientation for some reason. Rotate your phone to the left 90 when taking pics and there won't be a problem.
