How to build up?

So how should I build up my Jeep? A lift, then armor, then winch? Or winch, armor, then lift? Or armor, lift, winch. Or any other combination you guys can come up with.

Wheel stock with 31s and get familiar with your jeep, buy armor and winch, get stuck and familiar again, then buy lift and tires suited to what and where you are gonna wheel.

Wheel your jeep and figure out it's and your limitations then build to what you will be doing. IF you feel you need longarms and 35 inch for that and skip the stage build ups.
