New to the Jeep family!

I just bought a 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK 2dr Silver Billet. This is my first Jeep to own. I am so excited to have this, just got it a few weeks ago. I need help deciding what mods to start with first.

I know I want to add bigger tires along with black rims sometime next year, not now though because the tires on it are nice and I want to wear them down a bit before i get new ones.

I also want to add a lift maybe 2"-4" im not sure yet. I know i can get a 2.5" lift now with the tires it already has on there but im not sure if i wanna go bigger or not.

I also want to make my grill black but not sure what approach i should take.

I also want to redo the exhaust, tint the windows, get a new front bumper and add a winch, add a rack on the back with gas cans added, add lights next to the windshield, add a cold air intake, and eventually get a soft top this spring.

Im just not sure what to do first aside from tint the windows. Any help from you all would be appreciated!

Seems the family just keeps getting bigger and bigger!

I know the grill is probably the easiest, fastest and cheapest mod on your list. Lots of folks mention plasti-dip for theirs. If you wander down to the JK Forum, I am sure folks can give you bunches of options. I have not done any mods-ahem yet lol! Just remember when you start doing mods on the structural/suspension/mechanical type stuff - parts of your warranty may be at risk. Just thought I would toss that out since your Wrangler is brand new.
