    Hi all, new to this site. I am now ready to mod my 07 PreRunner but I don't know what I should do first. What are some of the first mods that you have all done? I don't need a lift kit since its a PreRunner (non 4x4, which sucks but the price was right). I do have step rails on the side, thats it. Thoughts? By the way, I am not looking at spending thousands just yet.

    Do you need a cover in the bed? A tonneau cover will come in handy for carrying items such as groceries, etc.

    New mats will also be great. I have weathertech mats and love them. They are expensive though.

    Also, seat covers are great to look into.

    Does your tailgate already have a lock? If not, I recommend the pop & lock

    Seat belt beeper, Cabelas (Weathertech) floor liner gray, Covercraft Seat Savers in Taupe, Protecta Heavy Duty Rubber Truck Bed Mat, Pop n Lock PL5200, Pace Edwards Full Metal JackRabbit, Wolverine oil pan heater, Scangauge2, afe pro dry s filter, Remote Underbody 4 Piece LED Light Kit (White) used as Bed light, DIY Washable Cabin Air Filter, PA15-TOY, 4x4 Illuminated Switch, full synthetic, Redline Tuning Hood Support, Smittybilt Nerf Steps black powder-coated
    If you are going to put anything in the back get a Protecta Heavy Duty Rubber Truck Bed Mat, it will keep stuff from sliding around and for me from sliding out the back when I leave the tailgate down. Ya, I checked and I'm wasn't the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree but so far the Protecta Heavy Duty Rubber Truck Bed Mat has been good insurance when I make that mistake. :D It can be had for about $75 and well worth it. You can also make one for less but I don't have a link handy.
    If you carry stuff on the passenger seat or don't want to ware a seat belt all the time, do the Seat belt beeper mod, it's free. Can't beat free.
    afe pro dry s filter is fairly cheap and you will never have to buy another air filter, just wash it out.
    DIY Washable Cabin Air Filter is fairly cheap and you will never have to buy another cabin filter, just wash it out.
    Covercraft Seat Savers will save your seat cover for not too much $.
    Weathertech floor liner will be the best to protect the carpet but now you are starting to spend $$.
    Check the rest of my mods, they are all good and useful but more money. If you don't have a lot to spend I'd start off with the above. [​IMG]
