Need Help Choosing Goodies

So, for our 10th anniversary next month, my wife has told me to pick out things I want on my Jeep, but have convinced myself are not worth the $$$ expenditure after doing a cost/benefit analysis (blame the MBA for that one). So far I have come up with one of the 2" lifts (the local 4wheelparts.com store will only install the Superlift kit), Gibson cat-back exhaust, some new wheels, HID lights or a moonroof. If there was a winch plate and winch combo known to work, I'd choose that hands down, but there isn't so I can't. Is there anything I missed that helps out on the trails?

UberCommander:

Did you install the Rocky Road lift yourself or did you have a shop do it? If it was a shop, was it a dedicated off-road place or what? I'm leaning towards the lift the more I think about it since it's the one thing that will increase capability the most. Also, I don't have space to do the lift in my garage, so it will have to be professionally installed.

I installed the front half of the lift myself and had my buddies at the auto hobby shop do the back. The auto hobby shop is a place military can go to work on thier cars.
