    Wheels/Tires
    Trailer hitch (Can i just install a hitch or are other parts needed)
    Black Badges??

    PS. How do I attach pictures so they are bigger?

    If it were me in your place:

    1. Lift
    2. Air locker
    3. Armor

    Lights won't really be all that useful since you won't be using them most of the time. Wheels and tires come when you destroy your first set on the trail. However, if it's just a mall cruiser, then skip the lift, the air locker, and the armor, and go with the all the cosmetic mods. You'll be breakin' necks at the mall all day long.

    Yea agreed. Unfortunately this truck is going to start as a mall cruiser since most of the cosmetic mods wont hurt the pocket as much. Once i have the cash flow is when I lift her up and get her ready for some trails.

    Lol, yea, I feel yah.

    I started off wanting cosmetic mods, then my friend took me on my first wheeling trip. Now I'm all MT suspension + armor.
