Some aggressive tires, brush guard, exhaust, maybe skid plates and some recovery gear.

An electric cutout would fix that.

Mmmmmm. Electric Cutouts!

These things are pretty damn good stock on the trails so a 2" lift and some tires would go a long way! skid plates are a must tho. Whether you make your own HD removable or some lighter duty (better MPG) permanent ones.

Yea. But then you gotta get under to take it off. At least with electric you can just flip switch.

Ya, My truck keeps up with lifted jeeps. And besides a 1.5in tbar tweak, lock rite locker in the back, 5in lift in the back(2in lift shackles and 3in of additional lift with the air shocks aired up), and some agressive tires it it pretty much stock.
