Default '96 XJ

So I have a '96 Cherokee, the body has roughly 230k on it but the motor has been replaced and has roughly 150k on it by now. The only modifications that have been done to it are exhaust and a 3inh lift. I'm looking to start putting some money into making it more of an offroad jeep, and was just looking for some advice as to good upgrade options.

3inchs is a great place to start. get some 32/33in tires, cut your fenders, armor, new axle shafts and lockers and wheel the wee out of it
