    Toytec first. that way, u can pre check on tire fitment. but remember after u lift to do an alaingment. so u might as well save up and do the tires at the same time,.....u only have to do alaingment once

    a family member of mine messes with tires. he is a manager at a tire shop. he told me that when u lift your truck u will need an aligment. but also, if u dont plan on putting new tires on directly after, u may need a new alignment if u do any off roading, wich u will want done when they install new tires. Just wut ive been told:D

    Op lift then put some rims and tires you don't need an intake and exhaust but if you were to put an exhaust just buy a muffler it's cheaper

    This.

    Your driving habits should dictate what you do to your truck. I only started wanting to mod my truck after driving it for a few months an realizing, this problem could be fixed if I put a switch in here, or I wouldn't have broken my tow wiring connector if I had a lift. Etc.

    Unless you want the mods for looks, which is fine if that's what you're into.
