    1. Leaf Pack: will definitely help ride comfort
    2. Sliders: that is if you do not currently have a "step" nerf bars etc. for the fam to be able to climb up in that rig
    3. UCA's: geometry of your front end suspension components/ improved alignment #s
    4. skids: as you are a mild off roader and mostly trail you should be ok for a bit

    Big thing with deciding what you need is to determine what you are planning on doing? For example, if you are only trail running, and not planning on pushing into anything that may get you stuck, you probably won't need a winch. Heck, as long as you are with other people, you probably won't need a winch. However, if you are like me, and you push the limits while solo riding, a winch is necessary. Skid plates are great insurance, but not an immediate concern if you are on clean trails. I am personally a big fan of suspension upgrades, so I would recommend a leaf pack over blocks. Rock sliders provide multiple things other then the obvious protection, they can be used as side steps and also provide jack points along the sides (necessary if you like hi-lift jacks). Don't forget about your interior as well. If you are going to be doing a lot of camping or outdoors activities you may want to upgrade your floor mats. I recently got a set of the Husky liners and wish I had done so a lot sooner. If you have any more specific questions, feel free to ask, and welcome to the money pit!

    I was trying to upload the video of my first crawl at graduation hills (Red rock canyon CA). But site wont let me upload it.
    I am liking it now. I messed up my wheels bad on the last chance trail because im running 20's.
    Ride quality wasn't bad for me but they said leaf pack and UCA will make it better.

    On the rocky trail, i hit my steps a couple of times even with my 6" lift . Rocks in Last chance canyon (CA) was kinda big.
