    i havent done much modding recently on my truck, the mod bug hit me just a bit ago, and i am not sure what to do. I would like to spend $60 or less. it doesnt have to be significant, but id like your personal opinions on what to do..

    thanks

    You can do the fighter pilot/cockpit mod. I did it to mine and I absolutely love it. All materials cost me about $50 and that includes the soldering iron.

    bed mat, ultraguage, Husky rubber mats, I'm sure there are lots more but those came to mind quickly.

    Are you looking for looks or functionality?

    If that's something you're considering, I'd go with that! Sell off your old stuff and then use that money for some smaller mods or maybe an AAL for the rear.

    With just a TSB rear the standard 5100's will work perfectly. It really improves the ride also.
