Hi guys, so i recently picked up a 1997 Grand Cherokee TSi 5.2 v8. Its in pretty decent shape and i want to start putting work into it. i want to be able to take it off-road (nothing too crazy tho) and still keep it as my daily. ive already done some minor mods such as headlights, taillights, flowmaster exhaust, and mesh grill. I am considering a 4" RC lift and 32x11.50 Tires on 15x8 Soft 8's I don't know much about jeeps yet but im here to learn so if anyone has any suggestions feel free to let me know.
Also Im looking for some meaty looking 32x11.5 tires but cant seem to find any that look good and aggressive. so if anyone could point me in the right dirrection that would be great. right now im looking at BFG Mud Terrains
Here is a pic as it stands now and the day I got it

The Hankook Dynapro ATM's are a great choice. The only thing I will tell you is that if you plan on keeping this vehicle as your DD and you drive on the highway and such then you probably want to stay away from pure M/T's like the Claws from Treadwright or BFG M/T's. You will more than likely want a AT or hybrid such as the ATM. I have had the Mud Dogs from Treadwright on my Dodge Ram 1500 for a year and I love the quality and durability of them and especially for the price. But driving M/Ts as a daily driver will wear them down very quickly.
Since you want to get into some minor offroading you may want to take a look at installing some Tow Hooks and possibly some skid plates.
Beautiful job on your car. I'm new to knowing how my Jeep works. I really liked learning from the repair manuals on Morris4x4 site. <http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/>
Be sure you understand your Jeep's VTSS or "anti-theft system". (I'm sure you know that. Trying to spread the word . . .) The chapters that discuss it might include electronic control modules (including body control module and power control module), ignition control, instrument cluster, and vehicle theft security.
I also found this forum to be unrivaled for specific problems and examples.
Thanks for all the suggestions guys. But most if the tires you poste don't come in 32x11.50 it seems. (Or maybe I'm just not looking on the right sites) but so far the BFG mud terrains look like my best bet
