Second was a smaller coil spacer lift (2.5") and then buy some wheel spacers for a wider base

Third was a front bumper then eventually a winch ! I like the look of all the stingers so woul probably go with one of those

If anyone Has any other opinions of what to go with please let me know

All pictures will help a lot! Thanks fellow jeepers!

The 2.5 needed up much higher. I'd say almost 3-3.25". I bought them tthrough Jason @ KOR. I cant remember exactly but I'll look it up and throw a post on with it.

Paid $1455.80 shipped for front stubby with bull bar and the rear with tire carrier. My rear is the old version and was purchased back in November. It took 12 1/2 weeks to get the rear.
