    So I just bought my truck about a month ago and I put all of my savings on in an attempt to have it paid off in two years it's killing me not being able to do all the things I want to do to it so my question is are there any BUDGET mods I can do in the mean time to keep myself satisfied any help is much appreciated.

    I for one think you are on the right track .... paying this thing off quickly. The big mods can come later, although others will disagree. Take this advice from an old senior chief.

    Check out the link above to see what that has to offer.

    Keep on track paying that thing off- Once you own it outright you got all that extra money to pay for whatever else you want.

    nice looking truck, I used some of my saving to drop a down payment and left a little for mods lol...

    you could always do the 5100's for about $200 then alignment...they are adjustable so once you leveled out the front if you do the rear later then just adjust them:D

    cheapest/best mod yet is an AUX cable, I play slacker radio off my cell phone

    But yea, I have the mod bug bad but... I also use the truck offroad so I kinda needed/need to drop the coin for armor and such. I'll slow it up and work toward paying off debt next. After that.. mid travel, audio, ect is on the list :D
