The best advice I can give you is to look at the member's builds section of the forums. Different guys with different kits, tires, & so on. It will allow you to narrow down what you really want to do.

Mine is kinda like yours. Except its not a lariat, doesn't have 4x4, and has a lot more rust... I like it!

Default first mod!

Just did the zip tie mod to take the slack out of my throttle cable. The throttle is definetely more responsive. Probably the easiest thing you can do to improve your truck

Nice clean lookin truck!

Welcome to the forums!

I'm running 35" on mine, and they fit perfectly fine with the torsion bars cranked! I didn't have to do any trimming, but I'm not sure if mine being a fx4 changes anything!
