You don't necessarily need a winch. I've been down South with two Rivers jeep club with stock tires 4 inch lift and no winch or other modification and had less trouble as others with souped up rigs and or got just as stuck ad the big boys

Look into the Goodyear MTR Kevlars.
Very nice tire for road "Quiet and Predictable" or offroad very capable mud, rocks or sand.
I got mine from Discount Tire in Arizona shipped with a rebate for $20.00 per tire so I ended up with 4 new for $ 800.00 shipped to my door.

Keep in mind tires that are 35's and larger YOU CANNOT JUST BRING TO FIRESTONE, You must bring them to a REAL OFFROAD SHOP that has a over sized tire balancer, otherwise you just wasted your money.
Locally I go to Matt at Attitude Performance in Arlington Heights, IL, HE REALLY KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING.

Thanks for the input, looking at 35" on 15 or 16 wheels :-)

How does someplace around 30 and 34 sound? Seems central to everyone and there are a few places to eat around there.

Little off subject: anyone here around the Joliet area done an axle swap? I got a line on a d44 front and a 8.8 rear and might pull the trigger but am hesitant bc im not fully equipped experience wise to do it. They are fully assembled and everything. May need a hand or 2 if anyone would be willing!
