Post your top 5 mods....

If you had to do it all over again. What would you do and in what order would they come? As a soon to be new owner, I would like to learn from the experts what I should be considering first.

So let's have it...Top 5 mods starting fresh and in sequence.

Mahalo, Kidd

1. Head unit-I put in a decent alpine head unit a couple months after getting the truck. It is a great head unit but now I want a DVD NAV Hu. I wish I would have saved up that money now.
2. Speakers with amplifyer- I put in pretty good aftermarket speakers 6 months in. The sound quality is AMAzING compared to stock, but yet I wish I would have waited to get components.
Thats all i got for now i will finish tomorrow

Wow! this is a hard question? Does money play any roll?

If you're looking for cheap Mods? Then I'd go with:
1. BED MAT
2. Dash lights
3. Front grill
4. Wet Okoles
5. Weathertec floor mats

Expensive mods?
1. Lift
2. Tires
3. UCA's
4. TRD SC
5. Gears

Money is no object. Just what mods YOU would do, if you had to do it all over again and in what order (signifying your satisfaction with the result you got from it). I guess it would help to list some details about your base case before the mods. Eg. 4.0L V6, Auto, TRD O/R package, Access cab, etc....

Throughout the cars I've built, I've always done my own thing. Sometimes it was an expensive learning experience, sometimes I hit the nail on the head and it ended up being a mod I would recommend to other forum members. I think about all the money I could've saved, had I known then, what I know now....So instead of doing this all over again. Let us newbies learn from the pro's ya know?

1. toytec lift/ coil spacers and AAL
2. rims & tires
3. HID's
4. image dynamics components
5. k&n CAI

If I could do it differently I would have gotten a dif lift from the start and installed it myself to save cash. I just ordered the fox 2.0 coilovers....
I would have gotten different tires, I have the nitto dune grapplers...I would have gotten something that performs better for less $$$...
And I would have skipped the K&N CAI and just gone with the AFE drop in filter

Ah O.K! if money isn't an issue?

I'd go for the Full SAS! This IFS is too sensitive! Dana 60 front and rear.

Too much little issue with any lift on these IFS.

Expensive mods:
1. H.I.D. projector retrofit will be done to every car I own unless it comes from the factroy with hids. No PNP kits for me.
2. intake/exhaust and maybe headers
3. sound system (deadener, dvd player, sub, components)
4. rims/tires. Done when I need tires or if I don't like the stockers after awhile. Which is what I currently did.
5. TRD s/c but I could live without getting it again.

Cheap mods:
1. tint
2. BHLM
3. dash cover
4. bed mat
5. rear sway bar is a must.
