Talking mean green jeepin machine

hello everyone im pretty new to the forum after having purchased my cherokee in November of 2015 with the weather warming up finally and having scrounge up the dough for some new tires i figured id start a build to chronicle my adventures with this beautiful machine. my plans are to make it a expedition build mostly so im going to be trying to keep it clean (mud not withstanding)

so my list of upgrades and improvements that i want to get done is:
new tires (cooper discoverer at3's)
new bumper (dirtbound offroad with brushguard hoops)
2-3" lift (suggestions on popular ones or just whatever is cheapest up here)
addition of an overhead console
a custom made sunroof that ive got plans in the back of my head for
new wheels
add a hitch
plans for a trailer that i can build into and make my own (just like the jeep)
a whole slew of different lighting ideas but i haven't settled on something solid

I love xjs they're easy to get parts for and pretty cheap to lift If you know what to look for


I built this as well as my zj from mainly junkyard parts and they never let me down on the trail
