new guy from Las Vegas

I just bought my first Jeep 1999 Wrangler, 4.0L, auto, 60K miles on it. Completely stock I will tow behind my motor home and use it to explore back country. Any recommendations on modification would be appreciated

Thank you

I would recommend a 6k lbs winch w/ synthetic line, winch plate, a come-a-long in case you get ditched or swamped, small emergency air pump, good tool kit (harbor freight has a full set for $100-150) 50w driving lights, water and gas jerry cans. A snorkel is a good idea if you plan on going through creeks and rivers, sometimes you can't tell how deep it gets. I get most of my goodies from Quadratec. As you explore more and more you'll find that stock hight may be just fine. I ran 235/75R15s until my accident last week and could go a lot of places with just stock suspension but "bigger be more fun!"
