10K to spend on what??

To I decided to take out the lift and down size on the tires. And now im going to build up my truck for sled pulling but i still want to use it as my daily driver. I have a little over 10k that I can use to mod out the truck. What all should I get? Im a newbie when it comes to performance, right now i just have a 5 inch exhaust system. O yeah and its a 2005, ALL help would be helpful, thanks

Studs, delete, head gaskets, rebuilt oil cooler, coolant filter, SCT, gauges, fuel system, traction bars. and you would have some left over.

Traction bars, lockers, Custom tunes, guages, head studs, EGR delete. That should be good for a fun time at the fair. Dont forget the ratchet straps to crank down the front end.

Send a message via AIM to jhaddox
how many miles...if you could find a shop to do studs under warrenty that would be a big money saver...what mods do you have so far to it?...where are you located at?...

as for a list

Studs-400
205cc Injectors-Around 2000
VGT-HO or a 62/70 Fixed Geomerty turbo-Around 2000
EGR Delete-300ish
Airdog/Fass Low Pressure Fuel Pump-600
Reg Return-600
Tranny-Prices Vary (Suncoast, BTS, others)
SCT-500
Intercooler-Not needed but will help if you have the extra laying around
Elite Coolant Circulation Lines
Traction Bars

Depending on the exact pricing and if your doing the labor yourself of sending it out
