Talking Hello everyone, Im new here and have a lot of questions

So I have a 05 dodge ram 1500 2wd and absolutely love it. Its basically a stock truck right now, the only things it really has is a flowmaster muffler and some goodyear MTR tires. I have been reading up on the new Mopar's Ram Runner and I want to make my truck as close as a Ram Runner as possible. Im trying to make my truck offroad capable and also looking to add horse power to it. I would like to try to use Mopar parts but if there is anything better, I would really love to hear about it. Thanks to everyone in advance.

So my overall goal is to have my truck pre-runner, the way my truck is now is basically stock right now. What would be the best route into going into it and getting started? What I mean is where should I invest my money into first? Lift? Engine performance? exct. exct.
