Default Major work in progress

i currently wheel a 98 xj thats as close to stock as i want it. it has 3.73's front and rear "from what i was told by the previous owner". 4.0l straight six no catalytic convertor straight piped to a true glass pack "not a cherry bomb". kinda sounds like a v8 when its at an idle. Hella 5500 series off-road lights "i love blinding people who dont turn there brights off". In the process of upgrading to a bigger tire due to the fact of getting stuck the other day and it only has a 215-75-15 on it so im going to a 235 at least for now till i can get a lift. not sure what else i should due at the moment.

wants:
front and rear bumpers
lift
31's
bumper jack.... could have used it the other day lol...


Working on:
Getting new shocks
Parts to build a 3" budget lift

just added rancho shocks on the front with 5/8 pistons and got rid of the pissy ass stock shocks. also added leaf helpers for now in the rear and that brought the back up 3 inches just doing that. also put different tires on it nothing extreme as this is my dd as well. i have a set of shocks for the rear but am having trouble getting the bolts out of the T-mounts on the body of the jeep so they are on hold for now.

Put a locker on your first thing to ad. It will get you further than any new set of tires.

Buy a D35 lunch box locker and run it untill you upgrade your rear axle. Then the 35 locker will fit in the front 30.

What if it's a 8.25 and not a D35!? Then what should he do?

In the process of doing all new rockers and pivots on my valves and installing a 3" inch lift to clear my 33-12.50 kumho venture mt's. Added an accel super coil and bosch plugs the platinum 4's. Went from 1-3/4 to 2-1/2inch exhaust with a thrush welded muffler straight piped with no cat.... Should look and sound good when I'm done... Any logical opinion?
