Just bought a winchester 1300 defender! With wood stock!
What are some good upgrades to this model?

Old style or new style. The earlier 1300's had few "upgrades" available. Side saddle, butt stock ammo carrier, some stock options.

IMHO the 1200/1300 series of shotguns were some of the best pump guns ever made. Damn strong, reliable, just not a lot of accessories available. The Mossy's and 870's have more of a mainstream following. For me, the Winchester pump guns will always be in my inventory.

A side saddle to carry more ammo and possibly a sling and you should be good to go. Maybe a light mount and light too.

I bought a Specter Gear Winchester 1300/FN Police Buttstock Shell Holder with Rear Adapter for a few bucks on eBay. It holds 6 shells. No too many upgrades but it is strictly a self-defense shotgun.

Here's something you can buy.. besides a flash light.

The first thing I would do is get rid of the wood.

Are you sure it is a defender because in this pic it looks like a regular 1300 the defender holds 9 shells

That is not a "Defender" in my mind. It is a nice Winchester shotgun with standard (5 shot) mag tube. I believe Choate makes mag extensions for them. A side saddle and/or a buttstock ammo carrier and a couple cases of ammo will round it our nicely.

Nothing wrong with the wood. It could be died/stained darker if you chose to.
