The first mod I did to my Defender was I added the factory flip glass windshield: https://can-am.brp.com/off-road/shop/accessories-ssv/windshields_wind_pro/windshields/flip-glass-windshield-for-defender-defender-max.html

Second, was I added two Koplin gun mounts underneath the front middle seat¬†ūüėé

I agree with the flip windshield being number one.  I really like mine.  I went with the hardcoat poly and it needs to be babied a little more than I thought, I might should have spent the extra on the real glass one.  After a year I have a pretty big list of what I've added and a ever growing smaller list of what I'm still planning on doing.  See list below.  Items 1 to 17 were must do's for me. Nice gun by the way!

I looked those up.  Wow they are nice! Looks expensive but if you can knock out the stereo and lighting in one product it'll save you a lot of time and hassle rigging all that up and you'll end up with a great setup.

Lights were a very must for me. Oh those yellow lights had to get upgraded. I actually chuckled to myself the first time I turned them on at night. Darn you brp.  Kolpin gun holders were a very cheap and easy mod. Doors for winter use. rear winch and wired remotes were also a must for what I needed this thing for. 
bumpers help for protection but the rest in my case is just as one guy on here calls his rig money well wasted.
