IMHO no. But it is just that for me it would be a BIG waste of funds and parts.
Kinda why I don't have a winch either. I go "off road" with other Jeepers 3 maybe 5 times a year where there is truly a chance I will get stuck.
I do use it to "get to the fishing holes" but, could probably make most of that in 2wd. I do like it in the winter-- when we have snow--but it is not really needed.
I do like going topless in the warmer weather.....I feel like I am on a bike again , but don't worry about getting hit again.
It really depends on how you will use it. So it is an opinion question.
BTW just purchased my 2nd "Sport" 2012. First is a 2004 with over 150K and still running good and not going anywhere. A jeep is like that to me it has a "forever home".
