Default New here and need some help

Ok, I have an 08 Ranger Ext cab 4x4 w/ 4.0L and I am wanting to start modding it. I already have 32's on it and a 3" lift on its way. I am wanting some supporting mods to go along with this, so I was thinking intake, exhaust, and a programmer. My question is what to get for the most bang for the buck. Thanks for the help guys and gals

well from the three things you said you were interested in i would just get a better exhaust, well worth the money. intake, just do the silencer removal mod because personally i wouldnt be wasting money on aftermarket intakes.

how do you go about doing the silencer mod? and someone told me that on these trucks the best thing to do for these trucks is at least replace the muffler with a higher flowing one

pretty much just take the airbox completely out, remove that snorkle thing sticking out from the airbox, take out that plastic piece behind the headlight. shouldnt need any tools except for maybe a screwdriver to pry the airbox off. it just makes the intake sound a little better so you dont waste money on aftermarket intakes. there is a write up in the how to section. and yea just get a flowmaster muffler it sounds good on rangers

anybody have luck with magnaflow mufflers? I love them, but don't know how it would sound on these trucks... My diesel is straight piped but i don't think that would sound good on the ranger
