Don't get nerf steps, they are pointless and rocks will destroy them on the trail. Fist question, have you taken the jeep off roading yet? If not, do that first to figure out what type of wheeling you like. Your rig is very capable as is.

I doubt he goes off-road a with 20s...

If you get a body lift I wouldn't go higher than 1.25. So you could change to a 4 inch suspension lift. You should be alright cause you have the longer wheel base. You'd max out at like 3.75 inches for the lift.

mine came with nerf steps, they didnt last very long. too much leverage on the body mounted screws when you drop that step on a rock and it eventually pulled the screws right out.

20s, damn I overlooked that part. First step would be to sell those and get some 15 inch wheels if you want to use the jeep for it's intended purpose.

I laugh my ass off when I see peeps hating on 20's
First off if you use your jeep 90 percent for commuting and 10 percent for snow and basic 4 wheeling.

If your a rock crawler get some 17s with 37"s

I got 50k in my jeep and I don't intend to go over bigger then 12" rocks

I think you may have gotten the wrong vehicle.

If I use my jeep as the main one we use for snowboarding trips..
It's the right vehicle.. But it is my 4th favorite vehicle I own and mainly purchased cause my kids wanted one lol.

You could 37 w 26" wheels and serve as a great snow crawler.
