Default 98 Ranger 4x4 mods?

Hey everybody i previously posted a thread asking for some ideas, and many of them i have started. I finally painted my front grill and bumper again so it looks a little nicer now. And i got dual exhaust today so i have been hauling ass all day. Now i am wondering if i should get a K&N intake to give her a little more juice. I was also going to ask about superchips, a legit one not a POS one off ebay. I hear they are very nice when you wanna race a ricer or just save some gas. I am also starting to look for some black wheels possibly soft 8's and throw some 31's under it. As of right now those are some of my future plans if you guys got some ideas or things i shouldnt do that i said above that would help. Thanks alot.

don't know your trucks all that well, but here in south Africa we do the following:

Replacement bumper - get rid of the plastics and fit some steel up front
Lift it and fit proper suspension
Tyres very important - don't bother with all terrains if you intend driving proper off road, go straight to mud terrains
snorkel - optional, but usefull for water crossings and looks cool - I have had water above the bonnet on more that one occasion
some spotlights up front always help - I have the lightforce 170's and they outshine any other spotlight available

the possibilities are endless, all depends how much time you have and how much you want to spend...

BTW on the bumper thing, I have hit a cow in the road at 90km/h at night (60 mph) - bumper damaged, but I drove the remainder of the 300km home, replaced the bumper (insurance) and that was that, no damage to radiator or anything else - had to replace a headlight as well - mountings broke... :-)
