Can't Decide

I will have about $2000 within the next month or so. i have already decided that most of it is going into my truck. I just can't decide whether i want a 3" body lift, 35's, and gears, or if i want a tuner, headers, and maybe underdrive pulleys. i can't seem to make up my mind. what do you think?

With the way gas is right now get the go fast parts. They will help a bit with gas mileage.

Think of how much gas you could buy with that 2 grand though. Make sure that it will be economical in the long run before you drop a ton of money and all those parts.

though i get what you are saying, i am not doing this for economy. it would be nice to get a couple more mpgs, but if i don't i'm okay with that. i have already decided that i am putting the money in my truck. thanks for that thought anyway.

I wouldn't go body lift for anything. Upgrade your suspension if you want to go bigger :] It's better in the long run.

My ranger clears 35's easy and all I have is a spindle lift... and fiberglass :P

But either way I still think they will clear.

Get the performance stuff this go around. If you get the BL you are also going to have to fab up brackets for your bumper.
