Default Moss, 99' Classic

Little backstory:
Well I owned an 88' Cherokee with a 5 speed for a while slapped on a custom 5" lift and was planning on 33s but had regear for that.. moved to Kentucky for my fiance's last year of college then bought and 88 comanche pioneer started working at Hitachi automotive and slowly got tired of missing work because problems with my 2 jeeps. Had to go home one weekend to get my groomsmen fitted for their tuxs.. so we started out on a 3 hour drive back to North Carolina it was raining pretty heavy, heavy enough that I could barely see 5 feet in front of me with wipers on high so we got out of the rain got up to about 65mph and suddenly hit a bump and worse death wobble I've seen yet.. we made it 30 miles in an hour because I had to drive so slow decided to park it at my co workers house and take my fiances car the rest of the way. Had to come back and drive the Cherokee 30 miles back and parked it got really tired of sinking money into it. I had just paid for a mechanic to put in a new oil pan gasket, fuel pump.. and I know what your thinking why didn't he just put it in his self.. ill tell you why I work at Hitachi automotive in berea Kentucky everyone in Kentucky knows of Hitachi reputation and how they treat their workers. I work 7 days a week 10-12 hour days I don't have to nor the tools or garage to fix my isses and so I decided to sell what I had and buy a newer more reliable vehicle.. thus began the search I decided to use a loan and buy some with low miles found a 04' WJ with 103k with 4.0L and 4wd for $5850 in Lexington went and checked it out really nice rig bone stock but was planning on 4.5 long arms and 33s interior 8/10 exterior 8/10 almost bought it until my fiance found something that interested me. A 1999 Jeep Cherokee Classic with 4.0L 4wd and 125k miles instantly emailed them at around 9:20pm Monday night dealer emailed me back at 10:23pm which striked me as I was messing with someone that was deticated, so we settled on a $5000 loan $185 per month picked the jeep up on this past Thursday afternoon. And the comanche will be sold and 88 Cherokee sold to my best friend so its not like ill never see it again at least until he rolls it haha. Here's my new jeep 2 owner 0 accidents the 2 owners from what I've heard from the dealer are local elderly gentlemen and only used it for grocery getting and going to the pharmacy..

3.5" RE lift with some 31's would look great. Don't trim the fenders please lol. It's too pretty for that.

I haven't really done anything special to it since i've gotten it wish i could but the soon to be wife wants me to pay it off first before i start sinking money into it so its probably gonna be some light modding before i get to lift and such but i got my build sheet from Chrysler.
