Default Help me plan my Postal Jeep build

Hi guys, I'm planning to buy a Right Hand Drive Cherokee to use on my postal route. I'd like to get some suggestions for improving it after I buy it. It will be used for driving daily. The drive to work will be 20 miles on the highway and the route is 50 miles of about half dirt roads. In the winter the roads will be mostly unplowed before I get there and I need to get through it easily so the 4x4 is important.

so be sure to get one with a 4.0 and probly automatic your gonna want either a np231 or 242 transfer case . keep the lift mild like 2-3" and maybe some 235/85/16 tires on 16x8 rims keep the tires skinny to cut thru the snow. not sure if you would want limited slip diffs in snow or not but if so I recommend truetrac also pick a color other than white as to be seen better by oncoming traffic

Add extra lighting up front, and something that flashes too in the rear even if it's just your hazard lights. And a shovel and winch.
