So I will give you the "I drive on the streets 90% of the time", and only lightly off-road, but use the truck for work answer.

In order
1. mid-perch
2. full exhaust
3. CAI and tune
4. lights(fogs, and light bar in bumper)

That would 5k. It will ride better, look better, perform better, sound better, and you can see better. Lucky(not for my wallet) for me I am on my 4 th 5k spend, and still going! No matter what you do. Enjoy it!!

bumpstops, bumpers front and rear, leaf springs then use the rest for gas to offroad and if you have any left after that the rest for fixing what you break

My truck is currently at about $5k and I haven't done jack.

Bakflip
Bedrug
floormats
headers, not installed
intake
exhaust
tune
seat covers - sold
stickers
LOTS of Plastidip
cheap chinese lights
Expensive name brand lights

So as you can see, 5g's goes pretty quick

There are several other threads with similar discussions. Did you take look at those?

Recovery gear and a fire extinguisher.

Lights. Definitely lights

In all honesty, frame support/bump stops, bed liner, tonneau cover, mid perch, window tint, sound system, and of course, lights.

That's over $5k, he can't even gas it up after those mods.

no one wants a stall converter!? don't you hate the massive gap between 1st and 2nd gear? it drives me nuts especially in the sand.
