Kansas 1989 Jeep YJ Sahara

I just bought a 1989 Jeep YJ Sahara 4.0 manual 95k original miles that has been in family since it was first bought from the Jeep dealer I now work at. I need some ideas on how to build this Jeep. It currently has a Rubicon Express 2.5 lift. Rhino lined interior and new fuel injection the motor. I'd love everyone's input. I am wanting to do 33 tires for sure.

You also need to include what are you planning to use it on, strictly off road, only on road, or both?

What's the link man? And both. I have a daily driver. I still want to drive the jeep on the road but also trail. I'm still new to the forum kinda getting the hang of it? Also budget wise, around 7-10k gradually still need money for living and all that fun stuff. And yes 4.2
