AZ-1st Jeep owner, 1st Jeep question

Hey all. Just got our first Wrangler. Mostly to get out of our driveway in the winter here at 7400ft, but I have already caught the rock crawling bug in Sedona!
1st question... for clearance and protection (a.k.a. more highly rated trail fun), what should my first steps/purchases be?
  • Tires?
  • Lift?
  • Skid plate?
  • Side rail step things?

Thanks

Welcome Aboard! Definitely go with skid plates and rock rails first.

Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this area and post you questions there:
