    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 :ROFLJest:

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

    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.
