    I would also say go for the winch and then save up for a bigger lift. You wont be happy with the small lift after a little bit but the winch is always a nice addition.

    If you are not going to go with that much lift, I would just go with a Rubicon Express Budjet Boost spacer lift w/shocks and a set of swaybar disconnects. I go with this and the winch and then get the diff cover.

    I put a 2" BB on less than a year ago and wish I had saved the money on a better and bigger lift. I say go Diff and winch. with armor even at sock height you can work your way over some pretty good rocks.

    Winch first, then some lockers, then a lift. At least if you get stuck, you can still get yourself out with a winch. You get stuck with a lift, you are just stuck.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it's broke, it needed to be upgraded anyway. If you're going to upgrade, buy nice or buy twice. Remember this grasshopper. I've been promoted to cricket. These are the only things I'm authorized to pass on.
