As the title states, what do you believe was the best mod you did to your truck for under $150?

Mine would have to be the steering rack bushings from Energy Suspension. Its the first thing I now put on any new Toyota I pick up.

I'm more worried about breaking stuff, so for me, it's probably BAMF LCA skids or Inchworm e-locker guard.

I haven't heard about the steering bushing? Is it only for worn out replacements or did it have improvements over a factory fresh bushing?

Lexus IS-F Sport shift knob, just because I use it every time I drive.

Performance-wise, I can imagine steel-braided brake lines being a very bang-for-the-buck installation.

Bushings are a harder polyurethane material and are an improvement even over factory fresh bushings. They greatly reduce some of the slack in the wheel.

They are a BIG and very noticeable improvement, even with stock pads, rotors & fluid.

Either the Husky floor mats or the bed mat. They are the most extensively used mods on my truck. New brakes are a close second but was a little over the $150 mark.
