What order should I buy these parts?

Howdy howdy,

I've got an '04 TJ 4.0 5spd. D30 front, D35 rear w/ 3.73 gears

So far:

Cosmetic/armor
Smittybilt class rear bumper w/ tire carrier
Smittybilt XRC sliders w/ step
Smittybilt XRC front bumper
Rampage frameless softtop

Lift:
Roughcountry 3.25" lift (2.5" springs, and swapped the .75" spacers with 2" spacers)
RC 2.2 shocks that came with the 3.25" lift
Rear track bar relocation bracet (with lift)
Re-drilled front track back mount
1" T-case drop (put about 3k miles on it with no vibes at all)
RockKrawler adjustable lower front control arms

Wheels/Tires:
Unique fake beadlock 15" rims with DuraTrac 33x12.5x15 muds


So that's what I have. What I still want/imagine I need is:

SYE + Driveshaft
Rear upper adjustable control arms
Longer shocks
1.25" body lift
1.0" motor mount lift
belly-up skid plate
longer brakelines
side mirror mounted KC lights
flat fender flares

Then eventually when these tires are dead, and I've got my military paycheck coming in I'll move up to dana44's, a 6" suspension lift and 35's, but that's far in the future.

Of the things I still need/want (and maybe if I need to add to the list), what would be y'all's suggestion on what order to get them in / how to group the purchases?

I appreciate the input!

From the "still to do" list I would do those things in bold first.

SYE + Driveshaft
Rear upper adjustable control arms
Longer shocks
1.25" body lift
1.0" motor mount lift

belly-up skid plate
longer brakelines
side mirror mounted KC lights
flat fender flares

Then, you can save up for the SYE+driveshaft and rear adjustable arms so that you can raise the skid plate

Any suggestions on brands / retailers to buy from?

Do you have to get front & back or just front?
