Thank you for all the info Dubya_TJ, LugNutz, raymond, and hustler!!!! It is very much appreaciated
LugNutz: my rig is a stock 2003 TJ Rubicon with 31" Duratrack tires for now anyway. I'm already considering trading up to a Unilmited JK as the extra space would be nice. I'm new to wheeling, but I am hoping to be on some trails or in some mud on a regular basis. As for CB mounting, I'll put it were it fits :); and GPS, well I'm not much of a GPS person but trying to find a few trails last weekend showed me I need one to upload the GPX files and KNOW I'm in the right place. With all the private property around, I'd hate to find myself on the business end of a salt gun 😉
For winches I was looking at a Warn or a Rugger Ridge in the $700 range. Not sure how often winches get used, so that is a hard one to answer. I understand the need to have one as I get more adventurous in my wheeling.
