Re: baja truck
For power, start with the basics. Exhuast, intake, chip, etc.
Then if its a baja truck cutting weight will be a priority. Fiberglass fenders, hood and bedsides will help, as well as taking of the tailgate. Use aluminum wheels instead of steele, they weigh less.
Find yourself a long travel suspension setup with new coilovers and reservior shocks. Regear the axles to match whatever tires you go with.
Full underbody skid plates should also be on the top of the list. If it's an automatic, a remote cooler and filter would do you good.
You will probably be running at night, therefor you would get alot of use out of auxilliary lights. The higher the better, so get yourself a few on the roof and the bumper.
Make sure you have a full size spare tire, as well as a Hi-Lift jack, recovery straps and basic hand tools. I would also invest in a CO2 power tank so you can air down the tires and then air back up when you get to the road.
This is a start. If you have any questions feel free to ask
