Willy Wheeler Stock vs Mod performance & the "cool" factor

Recently got a white unlimited WW. Live in S. FLorida, land of the flat & flatter. Its not my DD. So I spent all this X-tra money so that I wuld be able to enjoy the pep, speed & Light off-road capabilitythat the stock offers. Now I'm bored and want a project. First thought was I didnt want to sacrifice performance by adding weight. So maybe cutting the factory front bumper and putting rough country stubs w/ a couple PIAA lights on a real wheels 1 5/8" bumper light bar. Kind of cool looking w/out any sacrifice. #2: The MAKEOVER: I estimate the cost to be approx $12,000 using the 4wheel parts. regear from 3.73, 4.56, 35 toyo RT, Fuel 18", Poison spyder bumpers, Mopar 2" lift, Mopar big brakes, Fox ATS stabilizer, Monster teraflex track bar (front & rear) recalibration programmer,tire monitoring,total parts $9,621..Plus labor..Am I missing anything other than a lottery ticket? My question is: Is it worth it? Can I still fly down the straights @ 80-90 mph w/out a wobble?, get on an on-ramp w/ the same pep? If it was to become my DD would I enjoy it just the same? ...PS I tested a used 4.5 pro lift with 35s @ a dealer w/ a 3.21. I felt I should have had a clown suite on driving in a ring. It felt like one of the Penguin mobiles from Batman
