Im a newb.

If I get a front bumper do I have to upgrade anything else due to the weight or anything Also good site for body armor-bumpers and such. And whats the biggest tire size I can go with stock jeep?

as far as armor goes its pretty much preference IMO. armor should give you maximum coverage as well and the minimum thickness should be 3/16". 1/4" is better but heavier.

for the extra weight of a new front bumper and/or winch most people just put a spacer on top of the front springs.

the largest tires on stock suspension is 31" but you may get a little rubbing if your wheels dont have enough back spacing.

a fairly inexpensive mod you can do to fit 31's more comfortably is a 2" BB.
