What more important??

Ok so I'm debating what to get next it's between a winch, anti rock or a tire carrier since my stock one can't carry a 36in tire which is more important or should I get first?

Depends, do you wheel more or drive on the road more?

Wheel more, get the winch, on the road more get the bumper.

The real question is are you set up correctly for 36's in the first place?

AntiRock. Screw big-ass tire carriers. A winch would be a close second but they aren't nearly as needed as most people make it seem as long as you wheel with at least one person with one.

That's what I was thinking I usually wheel wit a buddy and we carry straps but I was also thinking mayb jks discos and mayb te winch but on my previous tj I had the anti rock and it drove a lot smoother to me the stock sway bar sucks

AR >>> Stock sway bar regardless of links. That should be a definite on your list.

I would get the antirock first, followed by winch, then maybe a carrier.

Well I haven't wheeled anywhere hard yet getting my rig ready for the harder stuff and wen I go I would b taking out the rear seat so I guess that could work I normally wheel area my house there are a couple of good spots and there's the beach so I haven't had to use my spare

I've never wheeled anywhere with a mandatory spare rule. I used to carry mine in the back until I got a fuel cell. I'm planning on coming up with a cage-mounted horizontal carrier over the back this spring. Til then, in Kevlar I trust. Never had a problem.

The bumper in the pics on the first page and I know I'd have to relocate the lights
