Like previously posted, body kits tend to not hold up well over time. The ones that do hold up were not cheap to install and paint. Most economical body kits available are made of thin, cheap, fiberglass. The fiberglass flexes as you hit bumps and potholes and whatnot, and the paint then flakes off as the fiberglass flexes, and ultimately cracks and breaks.
Body kits also tend to lessen the resale value of a vehicle. They are also, in my opinion, a fad that has passed it's prime.
If you were to do anything, go with a front lip and ITR (real or replica) side skirts and rear bumper accents. They do not affect the integrity of the front or rear bumper and will hold up better over time. It adds the custom look to the teg without the over-the-top look of a fiberglass body kit.
And stay away from parkbench-style rear spoilers. They look ridiculous and scream "poser" when mounted on anything other than a track car, but especially ridiculous on obviously DD-basically-stock vehicles.
