Hi, my names chris and today i became a first time jeep owner! I got a 1988 xj 4x4, red, black leather interior in pretty good condition. My daily driver is a 1994 chevy Z71 with IFS Sad This jeep is going to be a stricly off road vehicle. it's in great shape and i only got it for $500 dollars. Do you guys got some tips on what i should do first?? i have a budget of $2,000-$3000 right now.. i was thinking 6 inch lift, 35 inch boggers and lockers.. what do you guys think??

35" with lockers will eat your axles unless you have a dana 44 ( check for this )
