Just regular maintenance for now, but I'm up for suggestions, though my knowledge on most doesn't go much beyond oil changes, etc. Time to learn cause I'm stuck with doing it myself for awhile.

That's a good one to start modding! Nice truck!

I'd say spindle lift and some 32-33's! Can't go wrong with lifting IMO.

Not sure what a spindle lift is? If it makes going down dirt road while hunting better I may need to look into it. Especially since I dont have 4x4.

A spindle is part of your front suspension and a spindle lift is 3" bigger then your stock spindle thus giving you a lift.
