I rammed poser rock pretty good at URE this weekend during my customary photo op.... I think I might have chipped the paint a little on the bumper

Control arms are a good purchase, don't ever waste money on a gas tank skid, a front lunchbox locker would be awesome, or start saving for an axle swap. Functionally, a front bumper isn't a big priority for you right now.

I know know. I keep getting sidetracked by pretty bumpers

About the axle swap, would it make more sense to get the other components first? Since I'm also planning on a TT eventually, should I go ahead and get arms and an SYE first? Or does it really matter?

I'd say arms before the axle. Makes life easier when adj and connecting the axle up. Everything afterwards
