Default Looking for suggestions to toughen up my truck

I'm looking for some suggestions to make my truck a little more off road capable. I'm wanting to take it out west (Colorado) hunting so it will need to be all around versatile. I live and hunt in MN.

I currently have 235/75r15 tires and a 3.73 axle. 4x4 with front locking hubs. Everything else is stock. I won't be able to put a ton of money into it but I'm looking at new tires, suspension, etc.

Give me your thoughts!!!

Body lift and bigger tires, Start there man. After that it will turn into a sickness!

hell you have ttb, lift that shit! if you can afford it look into james duff suspension, once you find the lift you want you can look for tires. and find an axle with a limited slip if you dont already have one.

L/S or a locker for the rear if you dont have one. Been to Breckenridge CO in the winter and i have open Differentials, sure would have been nice to have it. Deff a body lift, bit cheaper than suspension, and new tires. Kumho M/T are pretty cheap and still look badass! There just foreign hahaha! Good Luck.
