Totally agree with Ozrick and the other members. I have a 2008 CRD 2 door with 150km in the clock. They're awesome but you have to maintain them, and as with any vehicle 9yrs old things start to wear out, ball joints bushes, batteries etc. Allow a bit aside for upkeep and dont splash all your cash on bling.
There are also better places to spend your money for any accessories than ARB, who are majorly overpriced crap in most (not all, before the arguments starts) stuff, IMHO, have a look through the vendors section.
As your new to 4wding you should never go out alone, so a winch isn't a necessity with a decent recovery kit sufficing for most needs, also a first aid kit. You will be amazed at how far 2inch lifted jeep with decent tyres will go. As mentioned your suspension has probably sagged so a 2 inch lift will be quite a bit higher.
As for the dress up bling items, cargo nets, grab handles etc, get on ebay cheaply, watch all the stuff you like and you have a wish list for your birthdays, xmas' etc that your relos/partner/friends can choose from if they wish to or buy yourself when you have available funds.
Bit of a ramble I know, but you asked for all our opinions and thats my 2 cents for what it's worth.
Welcome to the world of JK's, you are already looking down the neverending rabbit hole of things that can be done. Think wisely and prioritise what you need and can afford over what you want, based on what you intend to do with it.
Use the search function on this forum as most topics have been covered several times with pictures and solutions more often than not, over and its a great source of info.

sway bar disconnects are a fairly cheap item compared to lockers and provide a good increase in flex to allow you to go a lot further before you fit lockers. Have you thought about a long range fuel tank? depending on what sort of driving you might do of course. I wouldn't go for ARB bars and make sure you don't get a safari snorkel. Get an AEV snorkel that enters the airbox at bonnet height.
