    I just got a 2010 4X4 6spd Manual Double Cab.

    I bought the truck primarily due to the fact that I want to take it out in west texas, and I also go shooting/camping etc out there. I am pretty new to a off road trucks. Since I cut an good deal at the dealership I have about $10-12 grand to dump into this thing and have some fun.

    I definately want to get an ARB bumper and winch. So what else should I get?

    Better tires for sure. The bumper is heavy and going to drop your front end, so aftermarket suspension would be good. The manual guys tend to like the shortshifter. Exhaust if you want it to sound a bit meaner. And that would hardly cut in to the 10-12 grand you have to spend. lol
