I know you said you don't want a lift, but look into a small lift (2-4 inch suspension) and then run with some 35s. It will look awesome, and you will have more ground clearance. I have done my fair share of offroading in a stock Dodge and in a lifted Dodge. The lifted one was much better even going through the same spots. Other than the lift I would recomend upgrading any part you think will break easily. The first thing that broke on my lifted Dodge was the U joint and I was in the middle of nowhere on a Sunday afternoon when no one is open. Not fun.

Yea i would stay away from the body lift as well, far far away from it. hey and maybe get one of those.....i think its called a high lift jack. I subscribe to 4wheel and off road, and it seems like every guy in there has one.
