doesn't really matter what you do.. as long as your doing things that make you like it more, you will enjoy every bit of it. personally i wanted to get the lift and tires done first too, but i wouldn't say that you NEED to start there. start where you want and have fun with it!
first thank you gentlemen for your input, thats why im here. i think he said only to make me think about what i really want to do with the jeep, to make i dont get in over my head. but thank you im here to learn.
You need to know where you want to end as far as lifts and tires but I would start there and do it once. I myself am not a huge fan of huge lifts and tires because I do not use it that way. I went 2 inch lift and 31's and am happy.
Determining what type of wheeling you plan to do and how much wheeling or how often you get out wheeling, will help determine what lift & tires to get as well as armor for your Jeep. After you figure this out and know the specs of your Jeep as well, this will help determine which route to go.
