Here is the path I'm trying to follow ...
armor = diffs - oil pan and transmission pan/bellhousing - steering box - rocker gaurds
upgrade steering (tie rod mostly but drag link too)
chromolly Alloy Usa axles front and rear
stronger u-joints like the Yukon Superjoints ("daily driver" friendly if you grease them regularly)
5.13 gears ***5.13s with the 4:1 and stock size tires is amazing by the way... I highly recommend it
suspension & tires
If you follow that order your jeep will be super reliable and do awesome on the trails even with the stock tires and lift.
Currently I've got all that stuff covered but with a very simple and econo suspension lift to allow for 35" tires and it works great... but I'm saving now for something better from RockKrawler.
