I m about the be the proud new owner of a 07 X JK. I had a timeline for upgrades from the stock so any suggestions would be welcome from what i had chosen.
Immediately (I already own these and ready to be installed):

Not so distant future (ready to be purchased as soon as I have the jeep):
Maxi light bar by Olympic 4x4
Rear light bar by Olympic 4x4
set of walmart fogs (4 on front and 4 on rear) [only picked these because they're cheep and they do the job, i dont think i need $70 55w fogs when I can get them for $20]

A little bit later (within the year):
ARB high output onboard air (12v) with tire inflation kit
Who the hell knows when!:

I cant wait to get to know you guys! Any help or advice is much appreciated!
Also keep your eyes out for Project Tall Man! I will be starting that project soon as well.
A little background:
I'm a really tall guy, I'm 6 foot 8 inches tall. I love the jeep so much that I wanted to buy one. But here's the catch, while I can drive it with some comfort, I really cant drive for really long distances without cramping up. Inspired by my fathers project that he did when he bought his International Harvester Scout II back in the 70's, Ill be perusing a seat relocation project. Ill be doing all the dirty work while any aspiring tall guys can follow along and marvel at the comfort of my jeep. :P
Also shout out to my buddy jipple28 who inspired me to get a jeep!
