If you are still anxious to spend more money, putting lockers in your differentials will greatly improve your abilities. If you choose to get lockers, I would also recommend getting selectable ones. Eaton has come out with an electric locker now. Sounds like your ready to have some serious fun.
Almost forgot.......Welcome to the Forum.
The first items I would add are skid plates. If you didn't add them from the factory I would recommend oil pan/trans, steering box, gas tank, and rockers. Then go do some wheeling. You should learn the capabilities of your rig before you start throwing parts at it.
I would not recommend lockers for someone new to wheeling. Lockers will let you get into places that you have no business being and can't get back out of. Also, if you do any serious wheeling or are unlucky enough to get stuck really good with lockers, 35's and a 6" lift I can almost guarantee you are going to destroy your Dana 35 rear axle.
When you regear after lifting and adding bigger rubber try a couple Detroit TrueTrack or PowerTrax No Slip diffs. They are limited slip units. They are affordable and will give you a lot more traction.
