Upgrade sequence

Okay guys. I was never in the position to drop my Rhino off at a shop right after buying it and say here's what I want done. I am happy to have the damn thing paid for though. In any case I have done many upgrades for safety and appearance and performance. I have added the Uni hardmount intake and Dynatek CDI to get me around the 50mph range, Cerullo F3 seats, harness bar and Crow 5 pts. IPOD to amp stereo system, HID conversion and a couple Kragen 7" HIDs on the pillars, ITP's w/BH's yada yada yada. But now I need to make the big purchases such as cage and suspension. I have held off on these because I have never made up my mind on if I wanted a 4 seater or not. Now that I am convinced I am going to keep it a 2 seater I can move forward. Problem is there are a handfull of things left to complete my Rhino and I am curious in what order to do them. I want to do a full color change so I need the following... new body kit, suspension (F18's on stock arms or maybe a MT setup, no LT for me), cage, full doors. What order would you go in purchasing these? And yes I know... get a sheave too.

I was w/KJ on this... I have the factory doors I bolted close for now and have rolled it a few times with the factory cage with no issues. So I figure they do their job... I would just like something that suits the Rhino cosmetically more. But the suspension needs to go and thats on the top of the list. But then damn "Jimmyz" keeps throwing these crazy deals on seats and doors out and its F'ing my sequence up.

I think you should do the cage first for added safety, doors, then do the suspension so you get the right setup after everything so done
