Default Sold my 2008 lifted Tundra and got an 2011 R/T! Now what mods?

Hey fellas, I just bought a new 2011 black R/T and I love it! What would be some good first mods? I'm debadging tomorrow, I want to sell my stock 22's so anyone wanna buy? I want to get the SRT10 wheels in black. If I switch to 20's will that improve MPG? Also if I add just a muffler and air intake system would that really improve MPG? I know you arent going to get great mpg from a truck but my Tundra was struggling to get 12 MPG highway and city was less then 10 so far my Ram get's 21 highway if I cruise at 65 MPH. Overall I'm very happy I made the trade. Thanks! Here's some pics.

New Truck!

hat is a nice upgrade. Looks great.Look forward to seeing it with the SRT10 wheels. The exhaust and the air intake will help a bit but not significantly, but every little bit helps.

Hey, I'm new to the forum, and I'm looking to replace my 98 GMC with a 2011 Ram R/T in a few months. I'm really new trucks, but I want to put some relatively simple mods on it when I do get it. I was hoping to put an engine tune in it, and a louder exhaust. Any suggestions? Oh, and nice pic by the way, that's the same color I wanna get

Welcome to the forum. Intake and exhaust will provide for a little better efficiency but you won't see any huge mpg gains, regardless of what you do.

New trucks tend to be a bit worse on mileage than those with some miles on them so you should see a bit of an improvement as actual mileage on your new truck comes up.
