What is your needs/purpose?

I'm assuming since you posted this in the Off-Roading & Trails section, that you are asking in regards to what mods will benefit off-roading?

Depending on what tires you have on currently, that would be the first thing I would do, assuming my previous statement is accurate.

Tires. And do some reseach on 'airing down'. That's all you need.

Wheels won't help at all. Suspension upgrades will come as you offroad more, see what you like/dislike and what you need to improve.

When you come out to San Luis Pass with us in a couple weeks, check out some of the other trucks. You'll get plenty of ideas then.

Also, IMHO, the best way to build up a truck is to replace stuff with aftermarket as the stock stuff breaks. For example. I've got a complete POS bumper on my truck. It's stock, but cardboard. Or at least, it as good as. I would love to upgrade it, but odds are, I will wait until the trails rip it off, or something else happens to it.

Forget wheels, They don't serve a purpose for off road use. (my opinion). Start with larger tires, Billy 5100's or a lift. That's what and dose great.
