My New XJ Project

I bought this 92 XJ limited (with leather seat, wheeling in style!), for 500 dollars. Its pretty beat I got it from my cousin(who doesn't take care of vehicles. Right now its out of inspection, I have to replace the rear wheel cylinders, but this is my plan. 2" BB from rough country, Coils out of a V-8 Grand Cherokee, Add A Leafs from Rusty's (I'm getting 3.5 because the leaf pack is so worn), and shocks from rough country. I'm gonna throw on retreads, but i don't know what size yet 33s or 35s. Let me know what you guys think so far.

Yeah I know I'm going to have to trim the fenders for 35s, but not so much for 33s, can't wait to start. Hopefully I'll get the wheel cylinders on this week.
