Default Newbie with some mod Questions - Please help!

I have a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Crew Cab 4.7L Flexfuel and I would like to do some mods! I have already ordered my 7' CST Lift Kit with some 35-12.50-18 BF MT Sitting on the Black 901 Rampage wheels. I also Ordered airbags and taking it to get a dynotec exhuast on it tomorrow. Im telling you all this cus I would like to do some performance mods to it and I dont know where to start. I would like to do a programmer, filter and intake. Is this the way to go with my setup or would you go a difference route. If so, what would you suggest for a intake and programmer? I did a search on here but maybe Im not using the search feature correctly. Thanks in advance for your help.

Bests,

With what all you have on and on the way I would say both of those would be excellent additions! Which one is subject of many discussions on here. I personally like the look of the volant cai system myself. As for the tuner it's pretty much between superchips and diablo sport, but it depends exactly what you'll want to do with it for which one you should go with. Don't forge our sponsors on here, they can help you with pricing on a lot of cool stuff!!

As far as a programmer....diablosports are pretty good, as well as sct programmers. Definitely shop around as i've seen a few websites over the years run a deal where you buy a tuner and get a free tune. Also there is a company called sniper tuning that makes software for your laptop to self-tune (if youre tech savvy). As far as exhaust goes.....kill the cats! they're bad for you lol. But generally speaking intake, exhaust, tune is pretty much status quo on where to start (and arguably the cheapest).
