Depends on how much you want to spend...

But a winch is usually a must... 12k pound winch with snatch blocks. I would run synthetic line since you will be getting deep. Cables run the risk of snapping although I have never had that happen.

Tires are the most important asset offroad. You can the most bada** offroad truck with A/T and you wont get through the smallest stuff. Get an aggressive M/T such as Pro Comp Xterrain (my personal favorite), Nitto Mud Graps (Not my favorite, but good offroad), or some super swampers.

I would carry a hi-lift. Very useful.

Lockers are always great and so is better gearing such as 4.56 or 4.10..
