Default Attempting to build.. 35k original miles!

I have recently purchased my first XJ after i totalled my last vehicle (2002 Honda Accord Special Edition) and got 8k for it. Came across this beaut' at a dealership in Maumee, Ohio. Perfect condition, no rust, came with chrome pulse rims (looking to replace, not meant for a Cherokee), dynomax muffler, 35,400 original miles on the 4.0 I6. Basically stock for now except i put the clear turn signals on there. I'm new to this and any ideas will be taken into deep consideration. Also looking to take off those running boards (definitely lose them wheeling).

i wish i could man but considering i wanna keep it till it dies, the miles are gonna run up anyways. i've always wanted to build an xj ever since i came across this site. not trying to go all out just yet, just some of the basics.

Probably once he put on those rims he didn't want to drive it anymore lol. Thus low mileage. Win!
