Default HV Newbie from WV

Just picked up a 98 ZJ Laredo 4.0 while mechanically sound aesthetically could use some love
Mechanical things to fix:
Interior map lighting
The latch on the glass part of the rear hatch will not allow the glass to open
New tires
The speakers cut in and out and the buttons on the aftermarket radio donít always respond as they should either a speaker issue or wiring issue hopefully adapters were used and the harness wasnít hacked to pieces

Aesthetic to fix:
The front door panels need replaced they were replaced once and donít match my ocd canít handle that
Headliner need to be replaced
Cladding on the doors is gone thinking of replacing with truck bed liner
Needs a good cleaning inside and out

Well the cladding and the door liners can often be found at the wreckers (Pull and Pay) and the speakers can sometimes be found cheap on ebay.

Mind you, the lower half of the doors look good with a nice coat of stonechip replacing the cladding.

Yep, stonechip/rhino lining. Similar products, gives you a similar result.

UPDATE 3/4/19
I got my heater core back flushed today and also burped the coolant system everything seems to be working now which is great I had heat on my drive home from class tonight.
Also installed a new head unit in the Jeep which 1) gave me Bluetooth and hands free calling as required by law and 2) I was able to determine that my speaker issue is either the speakers or the wiring to them.
