A stock Jeep is much like a stock rifle in that they are (in most cases) more capable than their new users. I've been constantly amazed at what mine will do. Find a club, take it slow and over time you'll discover the mods that will benefit you the most as opposed to those that look super cool in the ads. So far as mods go I recommend folks think about protecting themselves (safety), their investment (mods to avoid expensive repairs), their time (avoid lengthy/aggravating repairs/stucks) and then look at improving performance (since it's already so very capable to begin with).
Just my 2 cents worth.
