2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee, need info please

Okay, I need a little information. I currently have an XJ....Well I found a GRAND CHEROKEE that I may be willing to trade it for.

So, here is what I found..

2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ
4.0L quadra-trac II
64k miles
tow package
leather seats
sun roof
etc
unmolested
asking price $10,995

okay..i crawled around in the dark trying to look at it the best I could. Does anybody have any idea what transfer case it has it? or what front/rear ends? I dont know too much about the Grand's. any input would be great. Would like to put a 2-3in lift on it similar to on my cherokee. I know that the Grand uses all coils. What about tire size on it? Also, it seems to have a lack of recovery points on the front. Not looking to sink a ton of money into it though. Any information is greatly appreciated

Thanks!!

If it is quadtra-trac II, it has the 247 transfer case.

Front end is a Dana30. Rear end could be a dana44a sense it has a tow package but also a dana35 could be back there.

A 2" BB, 2.5" OME springs, or IRO 3" lift kit would work nicely.

31s on a 2" lift and 32s on a 3" lift can be done.

Tow hooks can be found for 100 bucks new or could find some on a salvage yard grand.
