How to make a D90 more reliable, safer, comfortable, long lasting

Howdy -

Just bought a 97 D90 LE converted to soft top. It's broken in but far from worn out. The only thing that mechanics have pointed out is a rust through spot on near the end (outflowing end) of the exhaust and some seeping around the transfer case and oil pan. Neither is leaking (i.e. NOT leaving spots on driveway). Apart from the exhaust, no rust anywhere I could find.

I am new to Defender ownership but have owned 2 1995 LRRR's (County and County LWB) which was a terrible experience. (What was I thinking???) They broke constantly and were expensive to fix. The Defender seems to be expensive but much less complicated (no air suspension, anti-lock brake computer, central locking, etc, etc). At least when I look under the hood, it all makes sense to me. I finally pulled the trigger when I realized that if I waited until I could justify it, I'd never own one. So I went out and bought this one.

I would love to hear your recommendations for the items that you - more experienced people - would do to make this very solid stock truck with 55k miles safer, more reliable, more comfortable and longer lasting. (I have ordered replacement stainless oil cooler lines already.)

Thanks for your time and thanks in advance for your help/responses.

Corky
