Personally, I think tint would be first. Then I would take some time and figure out what to you would be the next thing that needs attention. If you like the lifted look then that would be next. Base your decisions on your other mods, for instance new tires and rims. The tires/rims will affect and/or be affected by a lift so lift then tires. That's how I look at it. How each individual component affects or will affect or be affected by future mods and adjust accordingly.

I'd say, get the tires and wheels before the lift. Never lift it without tires to accompany the lift. Then it just looks like a tall guy with small feet. Ya know? Seriously. Tint. Mirrors. Lights. Gears. Tires. Lift. Tuner.

4.10s with LS. I have 35s and I plan on going to 4.53 soon enough. Just remember, Tuners are a must when you start runnin' with higher gears and bigger tires. To sync the Speedo, Odo, GM, etc.

Small Stuff

Go with the tint/corners and those things first. There small and will give your truck a better look and save some $$ for the larger mods later. Then when you decide on lifts and/or a wheel/tire combo and what direction you want to go in you have some cash.
