BHLM.

My opinion? Keep it clean - Skip the bullbars and nerfs.

Tonneau covers on a regular cab looks clean.

If you really want to go off the deep end, save up your sheckles and get that new URD supercharger that's coming out for the four-banger. Then you can smoke your new meats at will.

aFe pro dry drop in air filter with the secondary air filter delete. it doesn't do alot but it makes it alil easier for the truck to breath. I have a K&N drop in and its messy cleaning and re-oiling. the avid offroad light bar would look good. My personal fvorite is getting some thump in there. people do not expect subs in the regular cabs. haha

what do you plan on doing with it?

mainly street? off-roading?

skip the bull bars and nerf bars..

avid light bar and step rails, unless you plan on wheeling then maybe look into some sliders...if you don't plan on wheeling and won't be lifting it, then skip the nerf bars/steps/sliders all together

HID fog lights
BHLM with retros

look into your exhaust...headers/y-pipe/cat-back upgrades?
