Got ahold of some money for an upgrade. I need some opinions on my next mod. exhaust, tube doors, Rancho rear bumper and tire carrier, programer, ORfab rear bumper or save for complete control arm kit. I'm leaning towards one of the bumpers. just though I would ask.

I went with lift/tires then started armoring... front/rear bumper then sliders (a little late on the sliders = ouch) next is fenders and corner armor.. then tube doors and skids.. my skids should be good and trashed by then, they are well on their way.

I would get flashpag if you already have bigger tires, I have it and it helped out a lot on turning the 35's. Whenever you do get rear bumper/tire carrier, stay away from the Rancho, mine rattles like crazy and I am not real happy with it, you get what you pay for!!

yeah, Flahpaq is one of the cheaper things on your list. I'd put the exhaust at the end. Bumpers are somewhere in the middle.

yeah, that's what i was thinking about. but i have a standard and really only see a few things the programmer would fix, i.e speedo, idel speed, and fuel consumption. does anybody have the programmer and running a standard any input would help.

Just an FYI, be mindfull when you are selecting an exhaust system.
If you plan on playing on the rocks, don't invest in ones with the pipes sticking out the back. They will not look the same after your first outing.

snug fit with 35 on factory tailgate, but it keeps it stationary which is better than hanging like before.
That being said it badass, the color is a little bit different from the rest but looks, feel, construction and price 4 bills installed can't beat it with a stick. backup lights rock, step is cool, and diamond pattern is awesome. I'm now wanting frenders with diamond pattern to match should look great. I can tell the weight of he bumper when I drive, but it keep my rearend on the pavement. all in all very happy so far. I'm going to see if I can post some pics with my mytouch, @ discount rotating and balancing tries. its been way to long.
