Default 1996 2 door XJ (green machine)

So I picked up my very first jeep cherokee yesterday and I'm absolutely thrilled with it already. This may be a slow build since I'm in school and am short on time/funds, but I'm going to do my best to get her moving in the right direction. I'll be sure to post all my progress.

My first plan is a 3" lift with 31x10.50s. Next will be roof rack, bumpers, etc. to start with. I'm sure my list will grow exponentially as I go!

I've got a rough country 4.5" lift and I would suggest it to anyone, I would skip the 3" and go a little higher. Also is the jeep manual or automatic?

It's an automatic. I couldn't find a 5 speed to save my life.

Definitely the most urgent thing... The am/fm radio wasn't cutting it for me.

Yeah, I'd like to get rid of them ASAP but I'm waiting to do my lift, wheels, and tires all at once.

I'm located south of saint louis, mo. Pretty sure these wheels are 8" wide. I know they're 15s.

Thanks! I'm really happy with her thus far, can't wait to get my tax return so I can get started on things.
