Default what mods to go with?

I have a 1996 dodge ram 2500 that is stock other than a 4 inch body lift and 35 inch tires. The truck only has 84,000 miles. This is how I bought the truck. I am low on money at the moment but have a little cash to sink into it. I am looking for information on what the cheapest modest with the most effectiveness are? I mostly use it for trail riding but do play in the dunes pretty regularly to. It is not my daily driver... just a weekend warrior. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks!

my '95 is pretty much set up this way, and has so much more life in it than my '99. Even with the lift and larger tires on the 95, I can smoke all 4 tires from a dead stop with just a little pressure on the skinny pedal, where as my stock '99 I can floor it and still barely get out of my own way.
