Winch! A good winch can just about get you out of anything. Don't need lockers if you have a winch.

Welcome! What you need first depends on what your going to be doing with your Jeep, is it going to be your DD and what kind of offroading are you going to be doing?

Expensive #1

Simply put, by regearing your differentials, you can change the speed at which the axles turn the tires in relation to the engine speed.

Bigger tires will make your jeep slow and gas mileage will suffer, regearing will bring the vehicle back to stock performance.
