recovery points, tires, lockers, and maybe a winch when you get caught up.
Check out the Cherokee sections of JF for model specific info.
Nice mountains there, good luck with the XJ!

Why are you choosing to 'mud' in that mud pit instead of exploring the mountains in the background?

The deeper you get into this hobby, the more you'll probably start to dislike mud. It's dumb.

I had a 2001 XJ with A 3'' lift with a 2'' BB. with 32''s. Any way, If you're going to wheel it with larger tires go with the 8.8 rear or upgrade the rear axles. The dana 35 is ok but when you go with larger tires sooner or later you will snap an axle shafts. More so if you add a locker to it.
