Start with pretty much what ever you want. I personally would start simple and work my way up but to each his own. There is a thread on here with quick simple mods.

A good idea is to wheel it to find out where it doesn't meet your needs. Do you wheel where you need more clearance, not traction, is the limitation? Do you not need extra clearance, but can't get through the terrain because of the open differentials? How much extra clearance do you need for where you want to wheel?
Just some things to consider when planning upgrades.
I went with a lift to start. Lockers may come later.

Decide wagt you want to do with your Jeep. Then tire size will decide lift size and the combo will give you the look and clearance.
Get out with other Jeeps on the trail and ask questions, read a lot here on the forum.
Go through the paper catalogs make a wish list with priorities.

Thanks I am trying to learn as much as possible but it is going to be a daily driver more than the trails but it will also be the family's hunting rig and I love wheeling
