Im a newb.

As the title says. I have a stock 2005 sport and I want to start doing some addons to it. 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? Thanks and sorry for the newb questions! Im trying to learn

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.
