That looks just like my Jeep use to.
I got it with a Pro Comp 4" lift and 33x14 TSL Boggers so the first thing I did was swap out my tires.
I drove the Jeep with the stock engine for 3 years and wheeled the heck out of it. I did install 4.88 gears with a Detroit locker in the rear and a Lock Rite locker in the front. I rode with 33" tires until I got home from Iraq and then put 35" tires on it.
So have a good time with you build and I'll be sure to pop in now and then and see what all you have done to it.
If you haven't done it yet you might want to think about getting the inertia ring that Tri-County Gear offers as it really help the 4 cyl engine off-road and allows you to lug it down to 500RPM's. http://www.tricountygear.com/products/inertia-ring
