New From Temecula, CA building a prerunner

Hey about 2 weeks ago i picked up a 2002 Ford Ranger Edge, v6, 3.0l, 2wd and im turning it into a prerunner, my family has been into offroading for a while now, My brother has a ranger prerunner and im looking to top his. Im Only 16 so its hard for me to make money but ive been savng for about 5 years and i have 2400 dollars to start off with making my truck a prerunner. Heres a picture of my truck: https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ture1207-a.jpg

Please tell me what you think about it and tell me what you think i should do to it.
Thanks.
