Thanks for the advice! Forgot to mention just bought new tires that are good for mudding and gravel and all that jazz. Definitely gonna lift it but probably won’t be for a couple years.Things I got the most out of early. 1.5" lift (went to 3" a couple years later) and better tires for gravel and crushed rock roads. A little larger tires help with the ground clearance too. Lift might require upper control arms (UCA). I put side steps like yours to help the better half get in. Probably the first thing I did.
I wish I had done the 3" lift the first time . Just remember, opinions are like a$$holes, everybody has one. Read a lot and ask questions, good people and info in here.
