Super 40 flowmaster muffler+tip on stock exhaust -$200 after installation
I don't do any extreme off roading, just the occasional mud so I kinda ruled out an expensive suspension lift. I have 3 inches of lift right now but just because of spacers.
Would scrapping all of the above stuff be worth getting a NICE 3 inch lift instead?
Overall budget is right around $1,500
Personally, if I was going to spend roughly $500 on exhaust and intake, I'd save a little bit more and get the TRD products.
Also, I just spent a little over $1,000 dollars on my lift, and I'm VERY pleased with the way it turned out, especially for a somewhat "budget friendly" build. The ride is amazing, and I actually like it better than the stock ride. I know a set of King or Fox coilovers and shocks with new leaf packs and stuff would be nicer, but I don't have that kind of money to fork over at the moment.
As far as the lights, I'm wanting the same thing. I want to pick up a NFAB light bar, along with four Hella 700FF lights to mount on it.
