All depends. What type of wheeling? Mall, mud, rocks, sand?

Turn the key and drive it, wheel it, learn it, then mod it to fit your needs.

Great advice here. First thing I'd invest in is a quality Warn winch. You'd be very surprised how far a stock jeep can take you with a winch.

Basic Mods all Jeeps that will go off road should have

1. Make sure you have front and rear tow points !
2. Buy a Recovery Strap or 2 (Not a tow strap with hooks)
3. Tire Deflator and air compressor (Airing down works wonders at a trail head then airing up after your done )
4. Differental and rocker armor

Once you get a tates of what you want to do and need to replace then start looking at lifts tires gearing lockers . Just to warn you Properly lifting a vehicle runs in the 5-8,000 range after the lift, steering, gears, lockers, tires, labor

I also agree to put in a winch, wheel it, then decided as to what you want/need

I totally agree with figuring out what YOU want/need first, before spending lots of $ on what you'll seldom use. My 2012 remains completely stock except for some nice looking black XD Series Addict wheels. I bought a Wrangler to tow a 1,500 lb boat, use 4wd to get out of slippery launch ramps. It's all I need for now. I love this vehicle. Stock configuration has plenty of power, handles great and its comfy on the road. I don't want to screw this up - for now. ..maybe some day if my needs change...
