1999 Bone Stock XJ Sport


New Guy Here.

Been lurking around here since I decided to buy an XJ about a year ago. As I age my tolerance of the cold and dust in my CJ5 has become limited. And I'm at the point where air conditioning for me and the wife is a nice luxury to have.

Finally pulled the trigger before Christmas and bought me a stock XJ with 146K miles. Not the "Little Ole Lady from Pasadena" score but close.

This rig is going to be my daily driver so I won't be getting all "Rubicon/Fordyce Trail" ready.

Which brings me to my questions that I'd appreciate some guidance on.

My main wheeling will be on hunting and camping trips. Minor to moderate skill level obstacles. I have many years of saddle time in various Jeeps and Scouts so it's not a skill thing, it's a money thing.

What I'd like opinions on are how high of a lift can I go without changing various other hoses, cables, and ect?

What size tire?

Should I upgrade axles?

What bolt on's would you recommend?

Stuff like that.

I'm $4000 into the truck now and think a budget of $5-6K should get me set up real nicely and keep my wife from filing divorce papers. I have boats too so she knows how I get.

Anyway, I'm new here so if I posted this in the wrong section please move it to where it needs to go.

Thanks in advance,
