Default Off-roading car?

Hello everyone. I am in a bit of a dilemma with my 02í gs300. I recently took a solo off-road trip with my only car for some reason. And it was very fun. So now i want to completely change the look and purpose of the car. I want to get all-terrain tires and raise the cars suspension a bit, and a skid plate(i may have to take the bumper off haha), and a lightbar and all the cool looking off-road vehicle goodies. Is this type of thing even possible to do on this car? I just want to go off-roading more often, and be able to drive faster(without having to worry about big rocks damaging my cars guts). And I also dont want to buy another car. Its so comfortable. But yea, what do i need to get to raise this thing? These are pictures of my car currently, compared to a look im going for with a similar car. Im on a frugal budget

I learned by trying to mod my first car (a crossover) to make it sportier that you can't make a vehicle thats designed for one thing do something else well. If you want to go off roading buy another vehicle that was designed to do that from the factory or you're just going to ruin your GS and it will be very difficult to resell and won't be worth anything

Youíre very right, which sucks. Itís understandable though. Iím still open to any logical options, thereís always a chance I suppose
