Default Just Bought A Raptor (AKA the new money pit)

So I just bought a new Raptor (new to me at least [2010 6.2L]) because I'm moving to Arizona (I also had too many trucks so I traded my 04 Lariat and my 08 Limited in). Anyways I'm young and I'm going to school so I'm doing a nice budget Pre-Runner/daily driver build. My previous trucks have all been used with around 150,000kms on em so I never put very expensive parts on em, but seeing as this is newer (26,000 miles [its American I'm canadian]) I want to make this look beautiful with a couple expensive parts and lots of cheap DIY stuff. Anyways I'm looking to y'all for parts and shop advice. I'm moving to AZ and I'll need to find a good shop to get work done and advice from the community is always helpful.

The first few cheap an easy mods I'm gonna do (I think) are:
Paint fender
New wheels and tires
Street scene roll pan
LGE-CTS bumper for over roll pan




Anyone got an idea of what rims would look good? I'm thinking RBP or Fuel

6.2L was an late availability option in 2010 and then standard in 2011+.

Go with Method Racing wheels. Check out the Raptor Forums and you can see tons of pics of them, they seem to be the primary choice for all the Raptor guys.
