    Welcome and congrats on the ride. Now it's time for the fun part... wasting your money on upgrades that are often just as pleasurable as the day you got your new truck!

    Stay far far away from RC 3" kit. If you are looking to go 4-5" I would look at BDS, Rancho or CST.

    Welcome aboard from across the Sound. I'm thinking about a cat back and maybe a tune. Lots of ideas on here.

    If you are leaning towards 3" you need to look at skyjacker not RC.
