95YJMounties Attempt at an XJ Build!

Yup thats right. You Uni-body guys have a new member!
Picked up the cleanest XJ i could find for the girlfriend last week. Already making some nice progress with it. This will be a VERY slow build thread, so dont get your hopes up too high. Since its her daily, were not going to extreme with it. Main goal is a nice, offroad capable, street friendly daily driver.

Its a 98' Limited. 4.0 Auto.
182k on the clock.
White on white. Not a single rust spot on it! (Rare for being a north east jeep)
4.5 inch lift
31x10.50x15 Goodyear Duratracs
Power everything
Leather interior
Nice sound system
Heres some pics of how we picked it up last week

Well, the tires will be going on tomorrow, But its making a noise in the front end which sounds exactly like a wheel bearing. But, ive jacked it up, and checked it twice, and both wheel bearings feel tight. I considered tire noise, but it seems to be getting louder. The current tires arent cupped, and all the front end components feel fine. Any ideas??
