Vote on what I should do to my truck first!

So I've got a long list of things that I want to do to my truck before I leave for school in the fall, but i can't figure out what I should do first. Here are some pics of my rig and then I'll list the things that I want to do.

3" Body Lift
K&N Air Intake System
New in-bed toolbox
Matching black headlights and tailights
Light Bar (Might be getting one this week with 4 PIAA's on it already)
Billet Grille
Black Paint Job
Paint fender flairs black
Second CB whip
Herculine the bed and get rid of the plastic crap
New carpet on the interior, or Herculine that as well

Add anything you might think of that I missed, Thanks!

Lift it, but only with tires. Move that CB antenna to the bed though and theres no need for a 2nd whip.

Herculine the bed, its really easy and fairly cheap. It just takes some time. Give your self a day and do it.

Theres some links to reference about it.

Also a body lift can be cheap. I picked one up for $100, and its sitting in my garage waiting to be put in. Waiting for some help to put it in...

What do you need a new tool box for? I'd kill to have one like that rather then my tiny low profile one!

I say paint the fender flares first!

Yeah the thing with new tires is I just bought those tires back in August so they are practically brand new. But how much do you think I could get for them if I sold them and went bigger?

haha i found it on craigslist, hell of a deal right? My mom is telling me "well is that really what you want?" I just said hell yeah I'm not gonna be able to find a deal like this again 'cause those lights go for $200 by themselves. I'm pretty psyched to get it.

I'm gonna say:

Bed liner, toolbox, bodylift, then tires. Just my opinion.
