Help Me Spend My Money

I've got about $100 extra and, of course, it's going to my truck...

I'm torn between HID upgrade to my headlights, a new radio w/ an mp3 jack, flowmaster 40 series, spidertrax spacers, or hella 500's behind my satoshi. What would you do?

I don't wanna hear any of that, "save your money" b/s b/c this is extra cash that is burning a hole in my pocket. I'm fairly set on what I'm going to do, but wanna know what everyone else would do.

don't tell anybody, but that's what I think I'm gonna do. I wanted to do 4, but I'm worried about airflow in the 100 degree devil's armpit humid as hell GA summers, so I'm gonna just stick with 2.

Light bar?! I've got $100 to spend, not $300! I love them, but they sure are proud of them!

Yeah, I plan on getting some HID's and putting them in. I've read Klipp11's 'how-to (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/lig...ow-w-pics.html)' about 80 times and am ready to do it!

Lights behind Satoshi here.
I'd always rather go with Function over Form.

HID's just piss off the other drivers (I hate when I meet them on the road at night, and the stock headlights on my Taco are plenty bright)
The truck already has a CD player, and I don't have an MP3 player, so I don't need one in the truck.
Flowmaster 40 sounds good around town, but gets annoying on the highway (had one on a jeep)
Spacers might be useful, but they might mean I had to cut plastic, and I like how my fenders look.

Now lights....I've always got a use for more lights. Especially living in a state where it's dark at 4:30 during the winter. Plus, the cruel sadistic bastard in me enjoys lighting people up when they 'beam' me on back roads.

Yeah, I only really plan on running my Hellas on the trails anyway. But, in my hillbilly ass town, I don't pass much traffic at night, anyway haha

The stock cd player in my 01 is a POS. I have a cassette-to-auxiliary, but the quality is terrible, so I want an mp3 compatible unit, so I'll have a better cd player and mp3 player

And 'beaming' people who 'beam' is always fun...especially when you've got HID Hellas to fire back at them!
