Default Cam Question

I had a question regarding a cam. I currently have, CAI, Flashpq tuner, edelbroc shorty's TB spacer, MSD 6A, MSD Super Coil, Accell everything else ignition wise and 4.56 gears. I will be using the truck for a possible everyday driver, but mainly a weekend wheeler. I want a semi aggressive cam. I guess what I am lookin for is a shopping list. Part numbers etc. The motor has 124000 on it, so I know I will be buying more than just a cam. If anyone can point me in the right direction as to all the parts I need including a good cam for my likings, it would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill

I presume you have a 4X4 and are wanting to make torque in the lower RPM range, say from off idle to 4500 RPM or so?

The best thing you can do is get in touch with several cam manufacturers such as Crane, Comp, Lunati, Isky, etc. and let them know what you have and what your intended use is. They can narrow the choices down to one or two cams and match it up with the correct lifters and springs you'll need. The advice you'll get from them will be much better than what you'll get here.
