Default Pics of my truck. Opinions wanted...

Hey all! I'm trying to decide on the next step I'd like to take with my truck right, but I'm at a crossroads about what I'd like to do. I have about 2k of "fun" money I've put to the side for whatever I'd like to do with it. With that being said I'm debating on just getting some new wheels (either XD Spys, or XD Monsters) in 20'' black finish with some Terra Grapplers and a Daystar Level Kit, and then just calling it a day for a while. The other option is exhaust (either Corsa CB, or mufflex DOD18m kit), intake (volant), DSP Tuner, and led tails + 3rd brake light. My question is, what direction would some of you all go? Thanks for the input!

Here's some pics of my truck as it currently sits with Tonnopro cover, Rampage Nerf Bars, and 20% front tint...

tough call and two different routes...looks or performace.

My vote would be for the performance mods and a leveling kit. I think you'd have more fun with them on a daily basis.

Tires, wheels, and leveling kit would be my choice.

As a personal choice, performance before appearance, but it's your truck man.

My vote is for appearance. With the funds you've secured, you're in perfect shape to do wheels, tires, leveling kit, and have just enough left over to go to Appleby's!

Rims and tires look fine, If I had the money to spend it would be on exhaust , programmer and CAI. My opinion only.

Sharp truck as is. With the stated fun money, I would add a leveling kit, slightly larger tires on the stock rims, and the Mufflex kit.

Thanks for all the opinions and ideas everybody. Much appreciated! So I think the route I'll take is go with some new tires (cooper zeons) on the stock chrome clads for now, the corsa cb (wish I could find just this muffler instead), a DSP, level, and intake. Instead of opting for led tails, in the interim I'll just nightshade them. Thanks again all.
