I think you should throw a little lift and 31s on it. Maybe an exhaust or something too.

I want a daily driver, not a mall crawler. If I lifted it, it would all be for show. I'm never going to take it offroad. Plus, anything larger than 27s will require a regear. The 3.08 gears have a hard enough time with that small of a tire. So, add together total cost of a lift kit, tires, regear, and the reduced gas mileage, and I have totally defeated the purpose behind why I bought the truck in the first place. I would rather spend that money on my Wrangler.

It will be getting a new exhaust though. The stock one is shot.
