Good to see you guys are having fun together. Is bigger tires a later plan? SH

Whatever is available at swap meets work and fit the best Smiley Or at least that seems to be the most cost effective for the young fellows Smiley SH

these look nice on the XJ.
 
I like BFG AT or Cooper STT.  Both are good tires, the cooper being slightly better off road in my opinion, BFG longer lasting (a non issue for a seasonal vehicle.  My Cherokee sees 'blizzard duty' but otherwise it's the econobeater that gets to rust away with road salt)
 
I had to trim the bottom of my fender flares on my 96 XJ so the tires don't rub.
 
Feel free to PM me if you have any driveline vibrations or further questions.
