ARB rock sliders on TJs look pretty bad ass and are a must for sil protection..then front bar, diff covers n rear bar if you're keen

thanks, i was thinking of ordering a rear bumper this weekend. im looking for something that can pull a boat, as well as get me or someone else unstuck. There really arnt to many trails here in nc, but the ones we do have are insane. man, ive already broke it, or at least those crapy stock sway bar conects, i need quick discos. and thanks to this site, i now know power lines are a no go zone unless you want a tiket, guess ive just been lucky

JKS Quicker Disconnects. Usually run around $140-ish. Totally worth the $$. I love mine. They take less than 10 minutes to install. When you want to use them, they only take a few seconds each side and you're good to go. And re-connecting them is where they're worth the $$. They're SIMPLE to re-connect.

No one suggested an engine skid or a locker yet? Do you go offroad at all or just the mall? If so theres no need for diff protection or anything.

I would get a winch, engine skid, lockers.

Which would you rather? To have more traction to do cool stuff and be much suited off road or have somthing protection on the body, if and when it gets hit then cover it pointless to buy and never use it

You should def start to armor it up with some skid plates and Rocker rails/sliders. I love my Body Armor Rocker Rails.

what kind of rear bumper would be best. i want it to look badass with the d rings and the swing tire mount, but i need it with a hitch to pull a boat.

Armor it up, oil pan steering box, diffs, gas tank, it'll be unstoppable.
