For me this would be a question of what style overall you want. Obviously Judo is your base and thus you will be very comfortable up close and in the clinch. So I would either choose Muay Thai, which would make your clinches even better with all the knees, elbows ect and then throws if needed, which would then make you an up close fighter (think Randy Couture always closing the distance). Or I would go with western kick boxing this way at range you are still good and if they close the distance you have your Judo to fall back on.
So what did you pick? Any and videos of you kicking some ass?
Just a side note. I did a bunch of Judo and will be doing kickboxing starting soon so I hope it is a good combo lol.

It's basically everything in one..plus the guys who are thought of to have the best stand up are in K-1 ( yes, they'd wreck your favorite boxer with a LHK, or simply a leg kick).
So it kind of makes sense to me.
Plus, you already have Judo experience - that's all about the clinch. Muay Thai's the only stand-up art that allows clinchwork.
