whats your budget? what do you want out of your engine, more torque or power? do you tow, have big tires or tall gears? theres alot of questions to be answered to give you a good idea of where to start

For the money your gonna spend to do anything noticable you might as well do a engine swap. Performance parts are really expensive and typically dont yeild much gain from what Ive found. But as everyone said what your looking for and can afford are things we need to know otherwise you can call jegs or summit and oreder anything you want.

Performance computer (ecu), bored and polished throttle body, better air intake (not K&N), better intake (mopar single plane), bigger injectors (FMS 24#), headers and full 3" exhaust, upgrade your tranny/t-case, change your gearing, underdrive pulleys, supercharger.... The list goes on and on. Once you go to far, you need a programmable engine computer to balance out the air/fuel and engine management. It all comes down to time and money. If you just want an off-road toy, just upgrade the exhaust and get a good air filter/intake and forget it. You don't need HP to play off-road. You need gearing, torque, and traction.
