The single best improvement to offroading capability is locking the rear axle.

like mentioned above, pulley swap, better tires, lock the rear end. Id say gas pedal and some skid plates couldn't hurt either

honestly single best mod would be put some quad tires on the back and larger front tires, then a pulley swap, and then lock the rear axle, but is not needed ive conquered many holes without one, gas pedals and stacks wont help you perform better, just makes it cooler and although the gas pedal is nice to have

Actually the stack helps because mine likes to bog out when my pipe goes under but I'm in Florida with like 4 ft of water in one of my trails so depends if you have water or not

My stuff runs good and as long as you keep the tons a little she doesn't big down, but yes stacks are good for when your continuously in deep water but also makes you sick with the exhaust blowing in your face for too long
