Noob. First mods?

What's going on everybody? I'm a new member to TW but I've been using it for a little bit now to check out all of the rad things we can do with our Tacos. So I was wondering, what would be some first mods to look in to that don't cost an arm and a leg? I just got an authentic pair of Trail Team wheels last weekend, and I'm stoked on them! End Game: I want to turn my truck in to a Baja Surf Machine!

Right on dude! Thanks. That's a great idea actually because I get sand everywhere!

An after-market shift knob is always nice.

I just started reading up on the 5100's. Seem popular. They're adjustable shocks that add some ride height? What's the scoop on these?

Killer idea. I'm not quite there yet. But it would definitely make a nice finishing touch.
