    its a 4.0 liter v6, 4 door extended cab and 4x4 what should i do first?

    i was thinking air filter (K&N) and tonneau cover (i need the gas mileage)

    what are some good exhausts for this truck, i dont want to get a ticket for it but i want to get pretty close

    Dont get a k&n if you are going to take it offroading, they let though too many particles.

    a tonneau doesn't help your mpg... Studies have shown that your tailgate up actually helps mpg.

    Don't bother with the gas mileage items you have listed. If you want a K&N filter then get one but only because you want one thats reusable. I'd go ahead and do the exhaust first. Flowmaster and Gibson have some good systems that won't break the bank. If you can afford stainless I would recommend getting it.

    I had a 99 ford ranger 3.0 and it was a great little truck, however I needed something bigger. I never had any problems with it, overall it was a good truck.

    However if you are worried about gas mileage, get a car. You will get around 18-20mpg stock, and if you lift the truck it will drop down to 15ish. When my truck was stock I got 22mpg on a road trip, when I went to 33's, I got 15-16mpg.
