Default 2000 xj in indiana

So I am slowly building my rig starting with a 2000 stock xj. Since I bought it last year, I have had to put all new tires on it. Along with radiator, inter cooler, alternator, water pump soon ill be replacing my head (within next two weeks). I recently bought a 3 inch suspension lift from Zone and going to be installing it soon and throwing on a set of 31x10.50x15 bf Goodrich tires on. I also have a set of wheel spacers on the jeep and have taken my fender flares off. This is all just a start. I'll update as I make progress.

Well haven't updated for a little bit so I figured i should. My lift has come to a halt while I replace my head. I'm ready to pull the head tomorrow then over the next week or so while I'm waiting for it to come in, I'll be cleaning the engine and continuing with the lift.

I looked but didn't see a crack, but it was also still completely covered in gunk so I'm goin to assume there was a crack, even if it was just starting to crack, it is getting completely replaced

Well. The head is put back in and prolly 70% of the engine is reassembled. Have to wait on a new rocker arm bolt tho. I kinda snapped on by having my torque wrench set a little too high :/
