    (I already looked at forums with a list of mods but can't decide)

    here it is:

    I say first mod would be take that bumper/bar off, then the BHLM (black headlight Mod), perhaps delete the badges, lose chrome, HID's.

    i guess i would start with the exterior. I'm fine with the suspension set up as it is I guess I'm more or less talking about exterior add-ons and mods like headlights, brushguards, grilles, etc.

    Most people black out the headlight housings (or color match them). If you need more light, you can do a retro-fit, but its a little pricey.

    grille, you can go w/ grillcraft or search for how to satoshi, which is basically a recessed version of grillcraft.

    fogs... you can go hid in oem, or aftermarket like rigid led's or something like hellas.
