    Why would you want sliders or wheels before a lift? I say lift first then wheels and tires

    I vote Supercharger!:cool: And I will have sliders before a lift. They are all painted up now and waiting to be put on the truck. Nothing wrong with armoring up the truck before a lift cause you can still cause damage with a lift.

    To my knowledge, the supercharger isnt available yet. The 2012 has some additional smog crap in the engine bay that will make things more challenging.

    As for the first mod, I'd say go with a lift first, then the wheels/tires and sliders. Then Supercharge when it is available.

    Did not know that. Figured since it's the same truck it would be easy. Oh well. I vote sliders then. :cool:

    I know this is my first post ever on this site, but I'd get sliders just for the parking lot protection if nothing else.

    Agreed on the Avid step rails. Mine are also being made as we speak. A cheaper quick mod could be LED dome lights. IMO they look really good and light up your cab much brighter.
