    hey, I am planning on doing alot of work to my truck. I am looking to:

    - put 2" - 3" lift.
    - new AT tires
    - black brush bar and nerf bars.
    - black rims...looking at XD and Moto Metal.
    - New exhaust and more...
    and any ideas for brands im all ears.

    what should I do first, as I am on a reasonable budget and will be doing these things basically one at a time and don't want my truck to look funny being in limbo without some part missing. THANKS.:cool:

    Hi from a fellow Canadian!

    Lift then black rims. Get what you want and don't settle for anything less.

    Post some pics if you can.

    definitely lift first, then rims and tires.

    Brush guards and exhaust will make the most visual and auditory impact without making the truck look weird.

    If you were to get a lift then have to wait in order to get the tires. Then you are stuck with a lifted truck on stock tires and speaking from experience this looks kinda weird. If you wanted to save up to buy the rims/tires/lift all at once then that would be the best option and would not make your truck look strange.

    I vote my first option.

    1.exhaust first if it's important to you.

    2.Bilstein 5100's set at 2.5" of lift. 1.5" or 2" AAL for the rear

    3.Wheels and tires

    4.brush guards look awkward to me :(
