Hi! I recently bought a set of mud tires. I am still thinking of what to do next to make it more off-road worthy.

Welcome! I am the absentee moderator, DirtyBacon. You may have seen me on programs such as 60 Minutes, Friends, and To Catch a Predator.
We generally recommend building a rig to last the long haul. That heavily depends on what you're wanting to do with it and where you are wheeling. If it's any sort of real trail, I would prioritize armor pretty high (Radiator/Oil pan skid plates). Tires are very important also. Need to decide if you want all-terrain/mud-terrain. There is mucho informationo on this site to help with that.
A lift would also be helpful. Be sure to do mucho researcho before buying a lift (avoid outside-the-strut kits like the plague)
Start building up recovery gear also (shovels, hi-lift, traction boards, recovery straps(NOT CHAINS), etc.)
We are always here to help, but if you expect to be spoon fed information, or we suspect you are not doing you due diligence in research before asking us, you may not like us anymore :viking:
