first thing you need to decide is what are you going to do with your new toy daily driver and weekend warrior or beat the **** out of it and break every thing under it and how much money you want to in vest to lift and equip it

Ya this is my daily driver/weekend warrior. But im not worrying about beatin it up. I wanna set it up for off tossing and actually use it ya know. I don't to do anything to extreme. Firetrails and some mud. Just something to be able to have fun with. I want it to be durable for when I do decide to get a little crazy. What do u recommend I should do knowing what I want to use it for?

i heard some good things about iron rock offroad and there grand cherokee kits, they are upgradable to long arms down the road too, which is good for flex and comfort on the road

Get a 3 inch budget lift and some new meats! 31s atleast

3inch spacers are really cheap and effective for right now until you find out where you want to go.
