X2 for what Pluke said. Gears are a must from 3.21. I had that with the 6spd and it sucked even with 32" tires. I have 4.88 now with 315/70 16s and it is perfect. Folks say 4.88 for manual and 5.13 for autos, so check that out.
I got my rims and tires off CLs at a great price. I like my Mickey Thompson Classic II, but the black ones look great and are not that expensive. Pretty much any black rim looks good, I just like the ones with holes instead of spokes.
Overall sounds like your jeep will be pretty darn capable. Is NEPA North East PA? I am in Jersey just across the river from Trenton.
