nearly stock cherokee... ideas for mod?

hello i am new to the site i have a 1994 jeep cherokee sport with a 3 inch lift and a winch bumper with a ramsey winch in it. i want more mods on it to make it even more awesome than it already is, so far i'm thinking snorkel, aftermarket header, and maybe exhaust. any other ideas? thanks!

WOW a 16 yo girl who wants to mod her jeep! Header wont do much for you. An exhaust will make it louder and a little better performance. What size tire you running? Are you planning on going through any deep water? What recovery gear besides a winch do you have? Do you have any rear recovery points?

my tires are LT 235/75R15 104/101S 6PR. idk if that's the size or not, i think it is.
eventually i do want to get through some deep water.
i don't have any other recovery gear
i think all i have in the back is the stock hook

Get some bigger tires. You are only running just under 29's. I would get some 31's or bigger. A trailer hitch is a good rear recovery point. You can easily make a snorkel. I would look into some more recovery gear "come-a-longs" (I think that is what they are called) chain straps shovel ect.

yup, it's a daily driver but i love to offroad and kinda race, haha. i have no idea on a budget right now, but i would prefer to keep it cheap considering it's not my money being put into it, it's my dad's. it's kinda like his project car.

will those tires fit on stock rims with a 3 inch lift?
i do have a trailer hitch, i forgot.
whenever we go offroading we take recovery gear like shovels and chains. we usually take an essential tool kit too.

You should easily clear them. I am used to what will fit on a TJ but I am assuming 31's will fit with a 3 inch lift.

Craigslist. If you are not poor/cheap as hell like me and want them new then... well I am not sure because I don't buy new.

I would find some used then sell yours. Get some with rims (unless you have after-market rims and really like them)

Not to be a buzzkill here, but you should be practicing safe driving habits if you are going to be driving a lifted vehicle. Picking which mod to do isn't gonna help much if you crash the thing.

Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

i've had the jeep for over a year, i've been driving it since i had my permit. i've driven it since it was stock so i know how it handles. i don't drive like an idiot either, i know my limits. i'm a really careful driver. when we put the lift on it i was also given an extensive lecture on driving it and i want to keep my car for a long time and make it really dynamic.
