    What is your budget?
    Is your truck 4WD?
    What type of driving do you do more? Highway, city, slow speed, faster speed?

    Are you willing to learn to do your own maintenance?
    Or would you prefer as little maintenance as possible?

    The big 2 are Supercharger/Turbocharger (more maintenance but big power)
    And Gears. (Less maintenance but still a great improvement)

    Not much, unfortunately. Could re-gear to get some of that back at the wheels.

    Like @TnShooter said, but a turbo is a lot of work if you are not a mechanic. SC easier but you have to kind know what you are doing. Both are thousands of dollars.

    If its a 4door short bed and want to sell it to get into a 4.0 or something w a v6 let me know. Im looking for a '12-15.

    Regear

    intake does not change anything you have a cold air intake stock.

    intake upgrade for trucks is snorkel to keep clean off road

    I wouldn’t I’d spark plugs off Amazon
    Too many counterfeits.

    Spend the extra money and go to a parts store.
    And open each box before leaving to check for broken plugs.
    Nothing worse than getting home, pulling the plugs, and THEN find out one is broken.
