The hardest thing to do is get started, this place is great for getting ideas on which way you want to go. I think I got mine where I want it, withthe exception of a little bigger tire, but I can deal with that for awhile.
Basically it goes like this:
You lift it with a BB, then you go wheel it. Realize you don't have enough flex and/or ground clearance and your banging up your underside.
Bring it home, get skid plates and sliders, and search for a higher lift. Figure out a way to get it lifted to 4.5" of lift, then you need bigger/better tires to fit under that lift. Then you get some quick discos for more flex...then you rub, then you trim, then you rub, then you trim...Then you have to add the bigger steering stabilizer to account for the bumpsteer, then you wheel it more and decide that your tired of getting stratched all over the front from trees, so you put on a heavy duty steel bumper (maybe with a winch). Oh and I forgot to mention with bigger tires you can't fit the spare in the spare tire well anymore, so you need to find a place to mount it...in comes the rear bumper with tire carrier or the roof rack. I'm sure i forgot about another $2k or $3k of stuff in there but here are the most important things to remember:
1. Have fun along every step of the way, if not, Why are you doing it!
2. No matter how many times you think your happy with your current setup, there are always room for improvements.
3. Everything in moderation!
4. Enjoy the people you meet along the way, they will help you immensely and you never meet a better group of people
