Project Not a Soccer Mom Car; My 01 Grand Build

Hey everyone, figured I'd get my build started! 2001 Grand Cherokee Limited, 4.7, quadradrive, blah blah blah. I've fixed lots of little things but not going to go into that, time to start my build! I bought this Jeep to replace my Bronco I built up, planned maybe a bb, and some 31's. Well I talked myself out of that and decided I needed 6 long arms and some 33's hoping those coupled with the varilock limited slip will make a decently capable trail rig for local stuff, and Moab

Here's the Jeep as she sits today

Has the upcountry package I found out today, so like a 1 lift? I measured my hub to fender, and it's 1/2 or a little more over 'stock' specs without upcountry, so makes sense cuz it is on 12 yr old coils and isolators. Anywho, here are the plans!

*Iron Rock Offroad Critical Path 6.5 long arm lift
*Homebrew quick disco's
*33/12.5/15 pro comp mt's
*Summit Racing 84 series steelies
*Hitch mounted spare carrier, and maybe highlift carrier, if I can build one beefy enough to handle the weight...
*Sliders! either JCR or homemade
*Change all the fluids I haven't already done
*Swap out shizzy infinity sound system with new stuff
*New headlights because mine won't stay clear
*waaay in the future, when I have funds, 35's, regear, or swap axles and regear.

So I'm just waiting on my tax return to get here to order my lift, tires are already here, and wheels are currently en route

Here are the tires, picked em up for $650 in a buy 3 get on free sale

hope to get her wheeling soon!

8.8 swap in progress... soon to be rolling on 35's or 37's
