Sounds like you are really covered. There are some other small items that others already mentioned.

How is your interior? This is not mechanical, but one of the best refurbs I did was new leather and seat foam. Made such a huge difference in how much I enjoy driving the vehicle. That and a decent sound system.

New window runs would be a good project! Personally I'd invest some of that cash into a spray gun and compressor and do some rust prevention.. pneumatic wire wheel all around the frame and axles to get any surface rust down to a minimum. Then coat with some Corroseal and a top coat. You love the beach as much as I do so you could also use your spray gun to apply a fluid film or wool wax.
I currently have zero rust. That was a selling point when I bought this vehicle. Part of that is probably because I think the previous owner did not fix any leaks for about 250,000 miles. Every thing underneath the vehicle had a nice water and salt proof coating on it when I bought it.

Weld the sunroof shut or make it so it works and seals.
I have thought of that. I am about to redo the weather stripping.

How do you like your 12K Pound Badland Winch? I have one and I think it is great for the money. I am going to swap the cable for the rope they now carry.

Sound system is definitely on the list. What did you spend to get the leather redone, if I may ask?
