Default Cant decide Ext or engine

I cant decide if i want to do my exterior mods or my engine mods first.. I bought my truck thinking i had one out of 2 in my town.. Now all of a sudden theres like 4 or 6 of them running around... So i got some ideas and what i want to do, Like paint my fender flares redo the step bars.. grill and such plus put on the kickass hood scoop. But every time i get down to it i think oh man i really want to order my exhaust and cold air intake.. I need some input on what to do i got the money just cant decide.. i have to choose one or the other.

I also had this problem, I had interior mods, plus exterior and engine mods I wanted to do, when it came right down to it, I found a deal on something that I wanted for my interior, so that's where I started, but I think whichever is the most expensive, you should start there, cuz when you get that done you can say "well, I'm broke, but it's only Gina get cheaper from here!" lol

If your truck is running and looking good, do what fits the budget. Research it, plan it out and put it on!!

Ok, personal opinion here: No hood scoop, there is no CAI made for the ranger and i wouldn't mod the engine if it runs well (not worth the risk to fuck it up!).

I like the dual exhaust like STL has. What do you need to redo on the step bars?

Its a dual hood scoop like one on each side of the dip in the hood. Painting them silver which will make my blue POP.
