Picked up a super clean 1997 base model XJ.
4.0/Np231,HP,8.25 with tow package
Manual windows, manual locks, no cruise control.

Bought the rig up in Clear Lake Wa for a steal. About 3hr drive one way for me from Puyallup Wa where I hale from. Guy said it would run but then stall out. His other jeep needed radiator so I got a nice jeep that needs radiator then I'll be onto the stalling issue.

Here is pics from Craig list.

This will be a fairly quick built with a goal of simplicity.
2-3.5 lift
JK Rubicon (32" km1 tires) take offs with 1-1.5" adapters (Spidertrack)
White marker lights
I'll be swapping out black flares for white ones and paint just the center of the front and rear bumpers.
Rugged ridge floor mats
Window vent shades

And of course full tune up first.

Here are pics of it at home.

This is my fourth jeep and the first one that's not a red jeep. Now I don't like red at all but seems to be the only color I could afford.
I've had a 89 xj, 98tj, and my current daily is a 99 xj with a stroker 5" of lift and 35s. Build here https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f33/jeep-jeep-197209/

This build will be totally opposite of my first build. A daily done right

Interested to see how your wheel and tire, lift, and adapter set up will be. I have JK Sahara wheels and tires (also 32") and someone told me I could have body rubbing issues if I didn't do at least a 4" lift. I don't want a 4" lift.

Yeah I've decided to go with a 3" lift. I'm unsure of coils I'm using but 3" front coils with 2" rear shackle and adding the 3rd long leaf I took out of my Old man emu leaf pack on my other xj. Not sure on shocks yet. Going with bilstien 5100 or just some JK take offs. I ran the jk shocks before and I liked the ride.

As for the lift height running 32s with less than 4" I'm not worried about it. I'll trim fenders leave stock flares on then trim the bottom inside of flares and bumper end caps slightly and bump stop accordingly after I trim. I ran 31s like that on budget boost and had minimal rub up front and none in back.

Got my clear side marker lights put on. Also pulled the grill and headlight surrounds. I'm on the hunt for a white grill and headlight surrounds now. I started pulling the seats to clean interior. Guy I bought it from really took care of jeep. Its in good shape but he did haul hay in the back so its pretty dirty. I'm gonna look into having carpet cleaned or just pick up a diy kit.

For the interior I used armor all wipes with the power of Orange. Got to get the ones that say power of orange. And the under hood is just dish soap with a lil bleach and a scrubby no scratch sponge. And of course elbow grease. What works good under the hood also is purple power degreaser but I was out.
