Need help picking out accesories and add ons

Okay so I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler X and it's all stock nothing new and the only things in it's history is changing the bulbs and oil and brakes but that's all. I was wanting to buy a windshield light bar, new front bumper with fog lights (and a winch if possible) and possibly back bumper to match, new wheels and tires, and then i would like a basket that i can place in the receiver hitch so i can put a cooler or fishing rods on it. I do have a budget I'm 18 years old and I get paid minimum wage so nothing way outrageous and i dont want anything cheap but I am willing to a pay pretty penny for the light bar and front bumper. My limit is up to 600 but go ahead and post links of what you think might be good or is good and it's okay if it is above my price limit because if it's worth it I will spend the money so just post whatever and I'll make my decision. Thank you very much!!!!!!

first thing is knowing what you plan to do with your jeep. if you intend to off-road it, then i'd go for the bumpers and recovery tools. winch or come along, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, recovery strap, etc.
for a mall crawler, then go for the bright lights and bling.

1966 CJ5A, mods are coming

I intend to go mudding more than rock crawling mainly because I think it's dangerous. I live by the beach so theres a lot of dunes so I would need something thats good for mudding and riding in the dunes and I've decided I want a 3 inch lift and 33's with a new front bumper by Rock Hard 4x4 and then just a Q9000 self recovery winch

Something like this?
I bought the rack from Harbor Freight, then fabricated the rod holders myself using plywood and PVC pipe.
