What is a good first mod, I have 280 miles in it now. I was thinking exhaust? What kind, what size, ect, ect. An also the best place in the houston area to get a brush guard and N fab steps.

Exhaust and gauges are always good first mods. Size on the exhaust I'd recommend 4" and Tractor Wheel and Frame has pretty good prices on brush guards - look into the Iron Horse. They're MUCH stouter than the name brand for a ton cheaper price because they're made locally.

Like Slinger said, Ranchhand bumpers are about $1400 give or take for front and rear and Iron Horse will run you half that. It looks like Houston boys are taking over! Its about time.
