    If you are planning to go to 33" or 35" tires after the lift is installed you will need an oversize tire carrier or bumper/carrier combo. You can get the 33's to (barely) fit the stock carrier but it's too much weight for the tail gate. (Ask me how I know.) I went with a Bestop carrier that bolts to the tailgate so I don't have to swing away the tire to open the back:

    IMHO snorkles are a waste of $$$. I have forded streams up to the bottom of the headlight rim without a snorkle. If it's deeper than that you shouldn't be fording it in a Jeep.

    The tire carrier is a good idea. Do you have pics of it installed on your Jeep.

    Also, if you don't have lots of recovery gear; snatch blocks, tree savers and shackles I would get that.

    What about other armor? Rock sliders, transfercase skid plate, power steering box skid, gas tank skid. Lots of things under there to protect.
