Make sure all your suspension components are up to date. Reliability is the best thing you could have.

Cranking the torsion bars is free... though you'll need an alignment after doing it.

no need for lights if your truck breaks or gets stuck 5 minutes into the trail. for $100 you won't be able to get much. if anything, i'd look for some stock replacement bilstein shocks. the 5100 series are very commonly used and perform well.
