    No not that kind of itch...

    I'm wanting to tinker with my truck a little as I haven't done anything to it in a while. Looking for something to do that would be less than $1k.

    Any suggestions?

    It is a 2010 4x4 AC, Mag Grey

    So far I've only done cosmetic stuff:

    Grillcraft Upper and Lowers w/Toyota and TRD badges
    UWS Black Low-Pro toolbox
    N-Fab side steps
    Weathertech Visors and Mats
    Pioneer Avic Z110BT (upgraded to the Z120BT firmware) w/all the bells and whistles (bluetooth, XM etc.)
    Polk SR6500 components installed
    Alpine 300.2 amp installed

    I'm in the the group-buy for the W.O. in early October but I don't consider that a "mod".

    What suggestions do you guys have?

    My current thoughts are TRD CAI or TRD exhaust...
    When I am past the 36k warranty I will be doing a 3" lift and upgrading wheels/tires, but I don't see that as an option at this time.

    Any other suggestions out there?

    Guess I should have mentioned this, but I have it tinted to as dark as Alabama allows (which is no where near 5%, haha).

    I like the bumper ideas, but the ones I've looked at are well north of the 1k limit I am looking to spend (most are 2-3k)

    Yeah I think Armor Tech has a real nice rear bumper for well under a grand. Avid Off Road makes a nice front light bar, if you're not wanting a front off road bumper. What are your plans for the truck?

    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    If you don't have the SR5 package, you can add cruise control and intermittent wipers.
