I would be careful about mounting your CB there, if you go there a deep puddle your gonna screw it all to hell. And you could catch it on something and rip it off. Theres enough room to mount it between the radiator and grille.

Just looking
If you don't have cargo lights now would be the perfect time to upgrade so you can run the wires.

If your going to leave the shaved doors on it you should shave the emblems.

How are you going to lower the front so its not nose high?
