well this is my jeep so far i got it last month and it had the 3 and a half inch lift with spacers in the front and blocks in the rear. the tires are 31 12.50s. dick cepecks. i am planning on lifting it more and want to go with quality parts. im thinking a 5.5 inch lift with 33s. front and rear bumbers, roffrack,lights all the way around, chip intake, maybe some other odds and ends but i dont want to do it cheep or have it look like something original. i am not sure about cutting out for fender flares because i want it to be straight. any suggestions, tips, or comments on where to go with it would be greatly appreciated..

Well since you want to do it right, I recommend reading this entire build thread. He runs 33's on 5.5" of lift with no trimming, and it's by far one of the cleanest, most well-executed XJ builds I've seen.

Keep us posted on your build, and good luck!

Good list of bumper options here; https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f59/he...your-xj-44500/

If you can weld or have access to someone who can, the Logan's Metal setup is probably one of the least expensive options.
