+1 on the tuner, but I'd get a 14x3 chrome A/C and install it. Any monies left should be spent on a good tune up and maybe a hotter coil. Both MSD and Accel make one that bolts on your stock bracket.

Thanks guys, ive already got 4.10s they should be fine with my 33s. I recently did a tune up but used some cheap parts. I am pretty sure i got the Death Flash (sticker on the pcm that says Autorised dealer something). Should i go ahead and do the SCT tuner? ro would a super chip be enough? I dont wont to write off exhuast mods all together just nothing loud i would like alittle rumble.

Yep, throttle body & then a Major tune up, plugs/cap/rotor/wires, diff fluids, change (all) the hoses and add fresh coolant. Maybe flush the Brake fluid, & check out the brake hoses & the pads, change the P/Steering fluid. Maybe a new set of shocks...

Im thinking 14x3 Aircleaner,SCT tuner,Fastman 52mm TB, Magnaflow Muffler. How much louder is a Highflow cat compared to the Factory one and is it worth the money?

if you have the death flash i HIGHLY VOTE SUPERCHIPS FLASHPAQ, i had the death flash , and when i put the superchips on felt like a brand new truck, and trust me " you will love the new found power " thats about $300 then i would get the 14x3 for $75 on summit,

i would say1.7 harland sharps non-adj rollor rocker would be my next guess but you dont want internal , it really is that hard to do, for the power its totally worth it.

highflow cat are totally worth it if you want your truck loud as a mother lol made my truck 3 times louder http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExWcbsh-oxA

fastman was also a good one , good throttle responce of it, for lil extra get up and go.

i heard headers but dont quote me havent got that far yet lol

good luck with your pick my vote goes for the tuner for sure 1st, get rid of the dreaded death flash!!!

ignition kits not worth it , msd 8.5 superconductors/coil and ngk iridium plugs are good to add if thats what your looking for.

open up your exhaust too, they say you can gain up to 5 % more power doing it , get a 3 chamber muffler and a highflow cat, shouldnt be loud, it will def sound good for sure though deep and aggressive. mine has a single chamber thats why mine so loud, but i plan on making it louder with a cutout
