    If you had $500 to spend on your truck...what would you get? Im thinking of either getting new 5100s all around, or new black pro comp wheels (which I will buy new tires for once the ones I have wear out), or OME 885s and AALs adding the UCA later on (would it be more worth it to wait and get it all at once?), or last but not least a PS3.

    If you have any other suggestions, please speak up.

    On my truck I currently have a K&N, N-Fab Nerf bars, grillcraft MX, Hella 500s.

    I'd buy some Toyota DC OEM running boards just to see if I could make them fit on my access cab! Been wanting to do this for a while, but at $300+ it's hard to justiy doing these days.

    Get a PS3 - you'll get a lot more time (FUN) on a PS3 than you will in your truck.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I'd say get...... OME 885's on bille 5500s front and back, and an AAL to top it off! -about $580
    Or just say screw it and get the PS3 since they're badass! -priceless!
