    Cool 07 1500 classic 4.8 performance upgrades

    I would go with a Gale Banks CAI and cat-back exhaust. Fabtech makes a 3inch 2wd kit for your truck.

    A better air cleaner and a cat back exhaust would be my first choices.
    Lots of people lift 2wd trucks Pre Runners have a large following in Southern California, lots of off-Road teams run 2wd chase trucks and certain race truck classes are 2wd restricted.
