This. I am new too Jeeps & wheeling, and when we took delivery of the JK I was flat out researching lifts, tyres, winches etc. So far the wheelin I have done, I would not have benefitted at all from any of those things, other than the weight I would have dropped from my hip pocket.
Tyres will wait until the stockies are bare, and I'll need to get far more serious with the wheelin to necessitate a lift & winch.
Plus it is awesome rounding a corner in the middle of a pretty serious trail and parking your stock Jeep next to a Toyota with 10 grand worth of mods.
