The best fifty bucks you've spent on your truck...

I'm sure I can't be the only one who wishes he had more money. In the spirit of saving money I'd like to know...

...what is the best money you've spent on your truck, fifty bucks or less?

For me it's definitely the ImMrYo rearview mirror bracket I installed. Drove a friends tacoma the other day and had forgotten just how low that thing was initially.

How about you?

Ten bucks and an hour of my time for extra d rings in the bed. Best mod for these trucks, period.

While it's really close to $50... This has been an extremely good upgrade that I did. I am constantly smashing it on the rocks saving my u-joint.

The awesome deal I got on some Weather Tech mats last week. $50 plus $10 shipping so it was $60 oh well close enough.

I taped a penny on the base of the clutch arm (6 speed) to reduce the distance of the clutch travel. It made for smooth shifting as the clutch has excess travel. You have to push the clutch quite a ways before it even starts to engage and I found it messed up my shifting.

Anyone have a cheaper mod than that? other than it being free? lol

2 extra d rings...............5 bucks

Abs killswitch, 8 bucks

Glove box organizer from salex

Center console organizer from salex
Around 40 for both iirc.

Well, that's 53bux roughly

To pick just 1, def the abs kill.......I use it everyday and its way more functional an lifesaving than any other mod I listed.
