Default 98 Cherokee Facelift

Hey guys, fairly new to the site. I mainly use the site as answers to any and all of the mysterious xj questions out there. I wanted to post up a small build of my jeep thus far. Picked it up for 1500 bucks
-98 Jeep Cherokee Sport
-4.0L, 5 speed, 4x4 with 128,000 and hardly any rust
-after driving it for about a month I decided to get bit by the jeep bug and go for a 3" lift kit like the 16,487,234 other xj owners lol
-3" Rough country entry lift kit with a skyjacker track bar relocation bracket
-Wheels: 15x8 Eagle Alloys wrapped with fresh 31x10.50-15 Mud Claws
Im not like many other xj owners who wheel their jeeps, mine is mainly a DD so im not going for all the extras like a winch, bumpers, sliders, roof racks, etc. Im only 16 so buying a Jeep was a bad idea seeing how I barely make enough to put gas in it haha! Heres some pictures of the progress so far. I can only post up 5 picutes or I would be posting like crazy. Let me Know what you guys think, I will hear out anybodys positive or negative input.

Looks great! Like the polished wheels.
Remove the side molding and a $5 can of Rust-o-leam satin black for the wheel flairs and bumper ends.
