    These aren't really huge truck altering mods but they will all need to be done. The question is what order should I do them. Which do you think should go first?

    My truck has good tires on it except for one. So I will need tires but I could last. I will have three good tires if I upgrade now.
    Then the rest Just would be nice.
    Also open to new options.

    lol what do you sue the truck for? if it's just a DD and doesn't see much wheeling, I woudn't get into lockers etc...

    can you find a used tire to match your 3 good tires? that would save a bunch of money for the other things you want

    Oh yea thats on my list haha, But if I get 31's like I have and then I lift it and it looks small the mod bug will have me buying new shoes again.

    Haha very nice both of you...Definetely open to that .

    Haha Im not going to dump that kinda money into THIS truck, Maybe the next:D

    Man if only, the tires that are on it are like discontinued, Ive looked everywhere, It would bug me to have a mismatched set but I was thinking ...Maybe I will measure the tread depth because I am pretty sure I don;t NEED to replace them yet... Maybe I can do the others and hold off then do a lift/ tires combo in a few months?

    Just saw your build thread.

    The most quintessential "mod" you need to do is the upgrade to the 01-04 cup holder/center console assembly.

    Never heard of it haha, I may have to check it out further down the road. Good idea on the tires I may go find out exactly how much tread I have and post here for reference.

    That sounds like it would work, I think they are going to last to where it would be Tint, Or keyless (both) then tires wouldn't even be till like next summer then.

    Where did you get a 65 dollar exhaust.

    Eat some chili burgers and wait a few hours. You will then have your sound clip.
