Hey welcome. Too many mods to do just do one first. Do at least 2-4 simultaneously. Whether you realize it now or not, you are going to want to take this thing off road. So I say sliders, is your first step. Then lift, then tires, then skid plates, UCAs, storage compartments, Orangeboxx PSDs, CB, rear lower links, front bumper, rear bumper, roof rack, and so on and so on.
Metal-tech is a group company and supporter of the FJ community.
Toytec is another good company. They offer a 10% discount to FJ Forum members.
Bubdbuilt, a personal favorite of mine. Awesome guy and family man. NC company as well.
I am sure other people here will chime in and give you more input.

Welcome to the NCFJ forum...I'm with Brian...sliders, lift, tires then go from there. You can find OEM sliders often from folks who are upgrading for a good price.
Good luck, hope to see you on the trail soon or at one of our many gatherings....OBX maybe

Welcome man. I have been in the group about 8 months, and love it. Great resource. I'd go with some nice tires first. They will dramatically change the capability of your wifes rig. Then there are a bunch of almost free or free mods you can do like get rid of the seat belt chimes/remove the lense diffuser off your fog lights on the rear view mirrors/program your radio to different names and colrs etc. a ton of fun little mods to get the juices flowing.
