Rizzo, where you located?
I would tend to agree with the above post. I bought my XTZ, spent over $6000 in add-ons right away, and am already back in the shop with it, completely rebuilding it into what I want. Riding it for a bit told me what I needed to change and what mods had to be done. Most of what I had done previously is being re-used, but the entire cage is gone now, as well as being down to the bare chassis, where it's getting a new cage from the bottom chassis rails up.
But as for mods, you need to determine what kind of riding you are doing first. A lot of guys have enjoyed their XTZs with little or no mods when duning. So ride it for a bit, get used to it, take a notebook and pen with you to make notes while you are out on the trail or at the dunes. Then decide what the weaknesses are and then ask how to correct those weaknesses. Remember, what works for one rider, may not be the best for you.
Desert, you need to consider shocks and frame reinforcement, beadlock wheels, 8ply tires.
Desert and Dunes, consider clutching mods such as Airdam's.
Too much testosterone, consider engine mods.
