Just as gixxerphil and nissen said, I would highly recommend you wheel it stock to build your skills. You can have a great time in a stock Jeep. When you feel you can handle something more than your Jeep then you can look at upgrades...by then you should have saved a little money to do the upgrades. I know some very experienced wheelers that refuse to wheel anything but stock for the extra challenge of taking a stock Jeep where others can take their modified Jeeps.

Plus, if/when you break something on your stock rig, it's an excuse to UPGRADE!!

one thing not mentioned here is to find local jeepers around your area that are experiencd and go with them, they will help you and show you better ways to take things and what you can and cannot do. make sure you dont go alone.. but always have fun

Stock will do you just fine on reasonable terrain, as long as you use your brain - don't set yourself up for failure or parts breakage needlessly. Stock will not do fine at hardcore off-road parks or other such silliness, because that silliness is intentionally designed for highly modified vehicles and idiots who like to break things on their inadequately modified vehicles.

Carry a proper recovery kit, with a good shovel (or two, if you have a passenger). Know (or learn) how to fix basic stuff. Then go have fun.

If you're looking for your best bang for your buck in terms of upgrades, a good set of tires will make more of a difference than anything else at this point in time. A YJ with 30-9.50-15 tires, a bit of additional underbelly clearance (think: high clearance trans crossmember/skidplate) and a lifted gas tank would actually be quite capable. The low-hanging trans crossmember is going to be your big limiting factor right now.

plus the fact that modifying your Jeep is very addictive.
