I'd figure out what axles and gears you have when your think about 33's. I have 31's on mine with 3:07 d30/35 and I have been advised to not do 33's w/o a regear. But your list is pretty much the same as mine. It depends, are you going to hit the trails right away, or is it more your daily driver? I would probably do tires first but find out your setup as she sits. Call a dealer with the VIN and ask for the build sheet.

ARMOR ARMOR ARMOR!!! ESPECIALLY if you are going over rocks! Then, regear (if needed).

My stock axles and gears will last PLENTY long enough before i finish getting armor...
