Default Resto mod need advice

US Army Vet in Australia
I have a 96 cherokee and need some color and steel advice. What looks good what doesn't etc.

The A-pillar lights aren't even wired because I'm not bothered until I actually have LED ones I really want. The front lights are LED the spots are 100 watt xenon and LED bar like 75 watts. Running 30" retreaded mud terrains.sagging suspension is my next goal. 6 in would be awesome but might be just 3.

Bull bar was actually galvanized steel from East coast bull bars here in Australia direct fit. Usually sprayed it black but this time I was trying to get a color match and found a blessing in disguise.

Want to put roof cage up with 4 9 in 100 watt spots and a rear cargo tire carrier. Thinking about keeping that color what do you think? Or tan like an army tan?

Been working on the paint to make it look good and loving it.

Maybe plastic side guards for the doors and I've even seen a disco with two fuel cans on the side of the rear window. Maybe steal that idea.

By the way the antennas are purely Australian that I adapted to because I think it looks meaner. Also have 4 green cob LEDs I want to mount somewhere. The parkers are being replaced by LED soon and the empty bull bar lights for the turn signal will be pure amber dual turn and parkers.

Australia doesn't use amber for parkers so I rewired the stock ones to run off the headlights. And yes I'm from Arizona so I'm used to rock crawling however this is more of an adventure vehicle for the family that's capable of rock crawling. Kids too young at the moment and not many places here in Australia.

I want to have this

I want that roof rack but one that goes all the way back with an offroad gear bag on top and as well as kayak rack with kayaks on top of that.

I want something like that as well

Lots of work ahead of me. What do you guys think of it at the moment and what ideas I have for it? Colors?
