Singerhoff build

Hiya, I have a 2008 Wrangler X 2-door with 33 12.50 mickey thompson baja claws with KC high-lights. I'm in the military currently out of the states for training operations. But I'm doing my research and need your guy's help with some things. Here's a list of what I'm thinking on getting but not to sure if it's going to be compatible for the meaning of it working to its best ability? Not to sure how to word that lol. But here's the list:

1.
Smittybilt SRC Front Stinger with Built-In Winch Plate, Textured Black
2.
Smittybilt XRC-8 Winch System
3. Bushwacker Flat Style Fender Flares

Not to sure on a rear bumper, would love your guy's opinions! If I could I'd have a beer with ya! Thanks

Heres a picture of my rig for right now!


Everything on it is stock, besides the tires, wheels, and the kc's.

well smittybilt has a matching rear bumper for the front bumper you are looking at i think it looks pretty cool plus it looks like it would have great departure angles!

Old Man Emu suspension systems are supposed to be the best about a grand for a 2.5" lift thats what I am currently saving for

Does anyone run a Teraflex 3 inch lift w/shocks without welding the Trackbar mount? I am installing the kit myself and wonder if it will be ok without the weld. The instructions say "You MAY weld the part for added strength". I'm wondering how crucial it is to find a welder

Meh ... Recommended if really hard on your jeep off road. Not many weld the TF bracket because it anchors to 3 points and if very strong.
Something to do later on only if you choose.
I run TF's bracket and is not welded on
