Just bought, best order for practical mods?

I bought my Ranger about amonth ago, and I already did a ghetto *** ram air kit. I am trying to decide whether I should next get the 31/10.50R15 Bf Goodrich All-Terrains on the 15x8 black pacer wagon wheels, or should I do the catback exhaust, or should I do the brush guard? Ideas anyone?

Exhaust.. :-) Catback, dual or single.. any way you like it.. decent, and you'll be the most happiest with it compared to anything else you do to the truck I'm sure =)

Would a 4.0L sound better with a single catback or a dual catback?

rhino lining the bed wouldnt hurt either I imagine. I think that is probably priority, my dog might like the rhino lining the best.

When you get tires go with 32x11.50x15, they fit fine and look a lot better than 31s. Check my signature for some great beginner mods.

Ohh yeah, for sure! If you have a dog i woudl suggest the rhino over the exhaust... Wasnt sure what your uses were.. but high ups are protecting your bed adn body.. and a rhino liner over the bedcaps is perfect for that, make sure you get a decent thickness on there.. Im tempted to get a second bottom liner bed mat to go on top of my rhino to make double sure it stays good.. i already had a 900 lb transfer corner srape up a good inch square of my rhino lining on my truck.. so i need to get it touched up and put in a nice bed mat.

bed liners also add value don't they? I mean I went wheelin tonight, got a $130 ticket too, but I haven't ever been stuck before with the stock 245/75R16s. Michelen LTX M/S aint that bad of a tire. Thanks for the ideas guys, this is gonna help me get started on my mods.

the LTX M/S is a Great all around tire. Best riding too. But if you plan to off road any, hands down the bfg AT's. Btw if you didnt yet know michelin makes BFGs. Good luck with your choice!
