A TruTrac for the rear is a common upgrade as well as the '08 rear diff cover. I run the '08 diff cover with Royal Purple giving my running temps of 137*F.

The tranny and gear upgrades depend on your current tire size and useage of the truck.

On 4x4's gearing mods need to be the same on both axles. Make sure gear ratios stay the same at front and rear.

I dont know what exactly you should get but here is what can be changed.

Fluids: Royal purple for the diffs. AMS makes some stuff for the transfercase.

Gears

Driveshafts

Tourq converter

Fly wheel

Billet shaft for the trans

Pand and diff covers to hold more fluid and cooling grooves
