Default where to begin??

ok guys, i just recently got my 2002 ram 4.7l and i want to start upgrading several things but im at a loss at where to start. I do occasionally go offroading/mudding but also drive into town daily. so the question is...do i start with suspension or performance? also where would i be able to find a good supension lift for a 2x4? any help is greatly appreciated.

2 wheel drive 4.7. First thing to get is a programmer, Superchips 3815 will fit the bill here nice and cheap (unless you want to pay more $$ for a newer or new programmer). Everything after this starts to get expensive. CAI, exhaust, etc. A big difference maker will be rear gears. At best you'll have 3.92's if it's stock. 4.56 gears will help get that big thing moving. Keep in mind that will be pricey to get installed. I would then start on the lift. Once that's done and you have time to build funds up again, the 08+ intake manifold and the HO cams (if you can find them) will help alot with the engine.
