Which first?

I plan on trail/mud riding with my JKU. It will be daily driver as well. Should I get lift or new tires first?

My thoughts: (when factory AT wear out)
1.33's (stay stock height)
2.larger tires and lift (all at same time)

Thoughts...
My first mods are bumpers and winch. A lot I've read says stock AT tires do pretty decent. Can't spend to much. Little at a time!

Lift and tires usually go hand in hand. You can't really put much bigger tires on without a lift. And your not gaining a lot of benefit from lifting alone in my opinion. Stock sra tires do not do very good in mud. You could get some takeoff mud tires from a Rubi or Willys relatively cheap that would get you further. I'd invest in recovery equipment first personally.

Sorry that's what I meant. Put a more aggressive tire when factory wears out, (or before) then probably bigger like 35's and a lift later.
This gets me playing now and I do plan on more recovery equipment very soon. Thx!

Mud tires will make a big difference in mud. So that would be your best bet if you want to get out now. Not that you can't go out with the SRA's because you can. Just be prepared to practice getting recovered.

I like your thinking brother!
I know I'll get some practice recovering and being recovered!😎 All in fun!
I know me, it will only take a couple times of recovering and I'll be getting some rubber!!!!!! 👍

My next delimia: Do I stick with factory 18" rims when getting new rubber or go with like 16" to save on the rubber buying...
