If you plan to hit creek beds it would be smart to buy a set of Rubi rails to protect your tub from the rocks as well as an oil pan skid. Armor and recovery gear are always a good first mods. Not as flashy but better than paying for damage repair.

x3 On wheel it first, preferably with someone you trust who has a pretty good idea about what their doing. As far a regearing, you don't NEED to regear if you go to 35's. I ran 35s on my 2dr with the stock and had no issues except for that it was a little bit of a slug, but its a Jeep, not an import turner so I wasn't out drag racing it. (I had a manual transmission). If you go to 35's you may want to look into procal or something similar so that your speedo will be accurate. Good luck with the new rig!!
