    Depends on what you like and how much you want to spend. Lift it put wheels and tires on it. For performance CAI and exhaust.

    Loaded question... You could drop a fortune before you know it. How about this, your rear windows come with tinted glass that doesn't keep out uv rays. I'm in Texas and summers are brutal, so tint was first. Exhaust was next, sound system and next, lift tires and maybe wheels. Your truck already has a factory cai so don't spend money on that. Cai would not make one single difference because of the computer controlled motor in our trucks and very likely it could cause a drop in low end tq. Dig thru some of the builds on this forum... Lots of ideas and many of them inexpensive!

    Welcome!

    Congrats on the new truck and welcome to the forum.

    You need to post up some pics, that's an unwritten rule... Haha


    Then spend about 2 hours browsing this forum and see how much money you want to spend. You'll figure out what mods you want to do relatively quick!

    Welcome Rell!

    I would do some research on the site. There’s so many different threads and great ideas, it may take a while.

    Looking forward to seeing a build thread shortly.

    Haha OK, OK, she's right. TRY to spend only two hours.... I have been on here for about 4 years and I still haven't figured out exactly what all I would like to do with my truck, nor have I set aside enough money to do it all....:D
