ok...... as promised here is the list of to do's!

1. 4.5” Rough Country Lift (http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep_xj_4.html)
2. 32-or-33” tires (brand+width not decided thinkin general grabber AT2s)
3. Maybe some Dick Cepek DC-1s
4. Mossy Oak New Break up Camo headliner! (comin soon……)
5. ARB bullbar
6. SmittyBuilt winch (idk if it will install in ARB’s bulbar……..)
7. Rain gutter mount roof rack (warrior products or kargo master)
8. Optima battery (red top)
9. Cherry bomb glasspack (idk what size Cherokee takes)
10. Some E3 spark plugs
11. Bullet hole magnets!
12. More stickers!
13. More lights!
14. KC HiLites back-up lights mounted to roof rack
15. Maybe a snorkel……
16. Loooonnnnggg way down the road a locker
17. Again, looooonnnnnnnngggg way down the road whole body new paint or rhino liner
18. And once again, loooonnnnnnnnngggggg loooooonnnnnnggg way down the road is a diesel conversion done by JeffDanielsJeeps (Cummins 4BT)

hope u like it! this will be a slower paced build, as money doesnt come in that fast but it will be done!! changes are highly likely
keep in mind this jeep has bout 209k on it so maybe that diesel conversion will be sooner then expected.... hopefully not! (money wise)

33s will tear those fender flares right off on that 4 and a half lift. damage the fender also. 32s work great. and i just put on 31s today and it still looks beast.

Do not get the add-a-leaf and do not block it! If your going to spend the money do it right and get a new pack for the rear.

that jeep looks extremely nice for having 209k on it! My first mod would be the cummins 4bt swap. It would be sweet to just drive it stock with that little torque monster. now that you say you are going to wait till you have problems, that engine will be one to run up to 400k like some i've seen have
