    it all depends on what you want and want to do. do you want to offroad, just look good, go fast? others can chime in once you give some more information

    I'm looking to look good and increase horsepower a little bit, theres not many places to off road by me so that wouldn't do me much help. i was looking to get tires, rims, an exhaust basic stuff like that just to get a start...make it look good i don't want to do too much to it

    well if youre going for looks, the best way to change the looks of a vehicle is to get new wheels. get a decent wheel and tire combination and then maybe do exhaust and intake. that should be a very good start

    again thats all up to you and what style you like. do you want street wheels like 20's or maybe 22's? do you want and offroad rim thats 17" with some all terrain tires just for the "offroad look"?

    colors, sizes, styles, are all things you are going to have to pick on your own. its your truck so nobody should pick the stuff for you, maybe unless its a significant other

    There are tons of options (and opinions) about this. Check out the wheels and tires forum and also build threads so you can see that others have done and what suits your taste.

    your best bet would be going to a tire shop in your area and see if they have a decent selection so you can actually get hands on the product
