Default 2001 XJ Sport 2wd build

Whats up guys my names Rick. Im a 20 year old Marine living in the barracks. So this is my barracks build. Got my 2001 black Cherokee Sport 2wd in August of this year. I dont know about the history of her but i figured id give it a fresh start. First thing was the upkeep. Changed all the fluids. I have been running her stock since then. Ive been all over the San Diego county. Just recently i got my 4.5' Zone lift kit with RE full leaf pack and adj track bar. I also got 32''x11.50 Hankook DynaPro MT RT03's on black Pacer Daytona 15x8. Also put in a K and N cold air and KYB steering stabilizer. I loved it stock and I love it even more now that its lifted. My next big goal is a ARB selectable air locker when i get my tax return. But in the mean time ill work on little mods. Im hoping something of a prerunner build. Something to get me anywhere. Ill post some stock pictures. I only have one picture of it lifted and its a teaser. More to come when the weekend hits. Hope I can get advise and positive feed. Thanks
