Default 2006 Mk Triton Mods, help?

Hi guys im new to this site and im wondering who has a Mk Triton and what have they done to it? Im not looking to create a rock crawler but would like it to be a decent offroader.
Ive only done a couple of things so far
ARB winch bar
GME 3220 UHF
Some pathetic Narva spotties

Things i need to do
*New rubber (just A/T for a start) what size rubber can you fit under the arches (the triton has standard suspension)
*Suspension upgrade - down the track
*Would like to put some IPF 900xs's or some Lightforce 240blitz (if they fit in the arb bar????), very soon, out here in the bush there are lots of beasts gettin around
*Crusie control! It drives me nuts! Anyone done a conversion???
*Winch, budget is not huge was thinking Ironman 9500
*Dual battery system for winch and other accessories

Cheers guys if anyone has any info on their personal experiences with the triton and adding on bits and pieces please give me the heads up!
Josh

Josh, As far as rubber goes you can only fit 31s under it without lifting the suspension, can fit an AP60 cruise control VERY easily by your self, I have posted elsewhere on this site where to find the all important speed sensor wire under the dash to do so. It is also possiblt to improve the turning circle slightly by a simple adjustment of the bump stops.
If you do a search of posts by me you will find these bits. I will put up links as I find them.

G'day Lightsirens, Ive got a 2000 model MK Triton, had It just on a year now Ive put 31x 10.5x R15 to replace the 16 inch rims and thin tyers that were on it and they seem to be the perfect size for the unlifted arches, It came with a dual battery system and me and a mate fitted an Airtek snorkel that I purchaced from the Internet and It doesnt fit perfectly (but It'll do), also added UHF, Supercheap Auto driving lights and a 9500lb Ironman winch that I picked up for $400 BUT since we fitted the winch the front of the car has sagged badly, Ironman has advised me to put on heavey duty torsion bars & shockers. Most Importantly I had it converted to dual fuel as I was taking an absolute beating on petrol & now im paying a 1/4 of what I used to, do loose some power though while on Gas. The Triton can be seen here YouTube - kingbrude's Channel Theres a bloke on here called Grey Ghost who'll be able to help you alot, he's helped me a bit.
