I just bought a 98 cherokee sport lifted 3inch lift sitting on 31's It needs tires bad and I am at a gross roads of what tire to get I want something I can daily drive on that isn't super loud but I can go through alot with.... I was looking at the interco Truxus Mt's and then the MT claws not sure what to get input would be great. Also I am looking at putting new gears in the rear and front when I do my U joints I plan on putting lockers in as well input much needed.

You should buy some Rubicon take-offs, which are 245/75r16 Goodyear MT/R's. They pop up a lot. There's even an unused spare in Parts For Sale right now. Collecting spares is a good way to get them. They are usually unused.

Whoa, what? It is possible that you have the d35 but it is also possible that you have the Chrysler 8.25. If I were you I wouldn't regear just for 31s, unless you have no intentions of going bigger in the future.

Yeah, you don't need to do anything for 31's. 3.55's and 31's in an XJ will feel pretty good, actually. You'll get pretty good mileage with that combo, too. I ran mine that way for a while on a 6" lift.

Everyone has told me to do 4:10 gears for playing but... this is why i ask for everyone oppinion. So why shouldn't I do 4:10's won't his help me climb and go through obstacles?
The change in tire size does not warrant a gear change. You're barely changing anything at all. If you were going to 33's your performance would be affected a lot more. 4.10's would be helpful and the cost would be justified in that case.

I checked I have a the c8.25 with a 3.55 gear ration.
That axle will survive a lot longer and with bigger tires (up to maybe 35"), but lockers for it are expensive. I have a Detroit in mine.
