Default What next?

Ok, so as most of you know, while on R&R the past two weeks I was able to get the KM2s installed and the Gryphon CS installed as well. Everyone that I talk to says my truck looks amazing, and how much they love the way it sits.

Ok, I love the truck too, and i LIKE the way it sits, but I do want a little more height, but after seeing the truck with 35's and just the LK, i think the 35's will look small after a 6" lift..

Gas mileage isnt TOO bad, granted it sucks ***** in the town and city, but on the highway im getting anywheres from 16-20 (according to the CS) which isnt too bad.. BUT, i would like to get the power back, so gears are on the list of to-do.

My exhaust needs replaced bad, the tips are going to rust off pretty soon i am sure, and i know there is an exhaust leak somewheres, so thats also on the to-do list..

SO, the list so far:

- Exhaust (not sure what I want to go with, any input? i want a nice, deep, loud tone)
- Gears/lockers (not sure if i want to go with lockers front AND rear or just rear..)

- Lift (4" or 6")

- Wheels (i like how the stock wheels look, but i want the tires to stick out a tad more.. )

- Buckstop front bumper(prob. will look goofy without a lift?)

SO what do you guys think? What should I go with first? I will be driving the truck from Iowa to florida in July sometime, so that makes me lean towards getting the gears first, but I would love a new exhaust and some more lift as well... HMMMM... lol

For exhaust do you want just a bolt-on kit or just pick a muffler and have a shop install it?

I doubt it would hurt anything to put them on

The roush is probably the same as the flowmaster, for durability I would go with a stainless muffler so you don't have to worry as much about it rusting.

I was never a fan for kits until I got my Banks. I loved that thing and it was so easy to install.

lol Zach, after seeing what my truck looks like with just the LK and 35's I think the Rancho will look the best. and I still love your old truck and the banks is just a single tip right? Hmmm.. I dont know what to do. I want Loud, and deep.. the Roush is louder than the flowmasters or atleast the truck I heard was. hmmm

Banks is single tip just deep sounding and not overly loud.

Thanks James. I really miss the 150.
