    kill resale. What is a good list of reversable mods that won't kill trade value?

    So far I have added an Undercover
    Pop n Lock
    ScanGuage II
    Hardwired (but unwindable) GPS
    want to keep it as stock as possible yet do some fun modding.

    Like Bikes it's probably best to keep the stock parts and sell the mods before trading

    NEW Toyo TIRES Bed Cage to hold 120 LBS of sand and fishing rod holder, window air deflectors, Bug Deflector, & finally Avid Light Bar and step rails....
    EGR Hood Bug deflector
    AVS Window deflectors

    I kept the original size tires though 265-70-16 but I got the TOYOS A/T.

    Looking for a bed cover; I am tilting towards the folding ones because I do a lot of fishing and I will need my bed to be open when driving on the sand with the fishing poles from spot to spot looking for those elusive stripers. I will also be looking for a bike rack that fits in the back tow, and fishing rod holders. Those are my upcoming spring jobs.

    Why would you cash for a vehicle if you can get 0% financing ?

    I will need tires in the next 9000 miles. May go for those although I wonder how much they will add compared to what the standard TRD tires bring to the party?

    Also thinking of spraying the skid plate with the black underbody coating. Don't care for the silver.

    Truck already has the bug shield and window vents (although i prefer the in channel to the stick ons that are on there now) I may take the back windows vent shields off..

    Would love to get the stock black TRD wheels that were on the Rugged Trail model (and now the TRX) and dump the polished Enkies.

    I buy used.... bought one new car in my life. Got that out of my system. LOL

    Let someone else take the first couple years depreciation hits.

    But to answer your question....IF I could get 0% financing on a 2 year old ,20K mile Truck I would be all over it LOL even though I despise payments to anyone but me.

    As it is I pay myself car payments of $370 a month. In a few years with my trade i can buy another "new" used truck....LOL Been doing this since 94...when I made my last car payment to a bank. Always held the title since.

    I buy used parts and mod them. More because I worry about ruining my only thing. I don't generally copy mods. So I'm breaking new ground and am about 50/50 on being happy with the result.
    Ebay/craigslist.. get this and thats, and use those.

    lighted 4x4 switch, driving lights.

    Everything I did to mine, I did with an eye to returning it to stock if ever necessary. Albeit debatable whether it'd be worth the effort, but I've got everything.

    Lighted 4x4 switch and A/C-defrost disconnect are a couple of transparrent mods that are cheap, useful, and you won't even know they were done unless you are really familiar with these trucks and keep up on the forum chat.

    You could get 5100's all around, set them where you want in the front for slight lift, AAL in the back and it'd all be 100% reversible for the price of an alignment. All you'd have to do is adjust the 5100's to 0 and remove the AAL.
