you could do a body lift for between 170ish and 200ish if you wanted to or a bull bar of some sort or HID's or kc's or sumthin. you could get tires or rims or the right combo you could get both...i dont know what kinda things you're into but those are some suggestions

Nah. Get yourself a set of the largest tires you can fit(265/75R16) and you'll be laughin. If you can't afford BFG's or Toyo's, Go with either Hercules Terra-Trac or Cooper Discoverer ATR. You won't regret it

so go with the 265/75/16's.. Alright.. I just need to find a tire that will perform well in snow/ice (best a tire can, for ice, no tire is perfect for ice) and overall good performance. Im going to look into those you mentioned.

I run BFG T/a KO's and its been snowy and icy all week and i am very impressed with how they have held up. I have even done vehicle recovery and had no issues at all.

The Terra-Trac's are basically the BFG All-Terrain T/A KO's, just for those on a budget. A friend of mine swears by them and won't buy any other tire

Maybe some chrome tips. That would add about 100 HP. Maybe a little more since you have a 4.0L. Umm or maybe a stereo. That would also give you about 50HP.

Take that money and throw it into your bank account. Wait until its warm out and get a body lift. If your getting new tires minus well get the BL to go with it so you can get the biggest size. Just my 2 cents.

Black Headlight Mod
Niteshade current tails OR buy 06+ tails
Soft Tonneau Cover
06+ Emblems

Then you have money left over for soooo much Taco Bell while you do all those little but important mods to a black truck that is begging to be pampered.

hahah.. just giving you hard time we can save that for another thread. I just think he would be best off with the Tuner and HID's for the win. and night shading is just not my type.
