Two Grand to spend

Everything on my Jeep is stock. What do you recommend I purchase? My first purchase is definitely 32" tires.

If you are going to start wheeling it, go with 33" tires. You will want them eventually anyway. Seven to eight inch rims with 4" backspacing, and 2" budget boost to fit the tires.
Some type of LOCKING differential for the rear. This will be the best 4 wheeling modification you will ever make.
Enjoy!

Id figure what your long term goal is for the jeep and build it that way without substitung parts along to the way that was suffice until you get what you really want. It may take a little while longer to build up but itll be worth it

Build from the foundation up, that's the smart way to do it.

Oil pan skid
Steering box skid
ZJ tie rod
1" body lift
1" MML
High clearance belly skid

That's perfect for stock suspension travel on 32" tires and you're gaining protection, strength and clearance where you need it most. With any money leftover, get a Savvy gas tank skid.
