Depends on what you plan on using it for. If you don't plan on taking it off-road, then you don't need to do anything. If you plan on off-roading, then I would go with some skid plates, especially an evaporator skid or relocate it.

take your time, i jumped in and started buying things that weren't necessary or wouldnt work down the road....make a plan of everything you want...and then break it into more manageable chunks or things to get together. Like rims and tires, not rims then a month later tires...lol...along those lines.

There are alot of price swings and choices or brands for stuff also to shop around for

Such a hard choice. I'd go with the stuff that will make the most impact first (lift, tires) if you know the rest of your drivetrain will support it. If you want to make some surefire investments first, go with an upgraded rear axle.
