Man I would have been scared on that first run.
Not sure if you plan on modding but a nice shifter, lower control arms and some tires would really help, and won't put your warranty in question. An offroad X, cold air intake, and tune will really wake that 5.0 up.
Looks like fun, I haven't taken mine out yet.
