Good point.

Right out of the gate. Wouldn't go crazy as to void the warranty.

Yeah, little crap like tool boxes, seat covers, tint, I usually wait at least 17 seconds, major stuff, suspension and engine mods, for me I'll wait until my standard warranty is up.

Stuff that helps it retain value (like floor mats) you can do right away. Big mods like lifts? Pay it off first. Nothing like being upside down on a loan because your truck got t-boned and you put lots of money into it. Insurance won't cover most mods, so you'd be SOL.
