    header,short rack and pinion, heavy duty shocks, grill guard, flowmaster exhaust,pacesetter header without catalytic converter, one 10 inch xant sub with a mtx amp, off road lights,diamondplate tool box,rhinolined inside cab,ngk plugwires.
    take 2 large heavy duty 90 degree brackets and mount them under the bed of the truck or int the front inside of the bumper (wherever your tow hooks are) mount your chain ontothe tow hook securley, take a 4 inch pece of pvc about 1 foot long and insert a steel rod in the pipe . make a handle onto one side of the rod so you can easily crank your chain onto the pvc mount the rod in the brackets now you can easily reel and un reel your chan and i stays in place if you want to get technical insert bearings into the pvc. think of a toilet paper holder on steroids same principal. once again no pics no camera i can give you a parts list if interested cheaper than a winch has the same principal

    PVC is great hahaha
    -used a piece of 4" bolted to the roof rack on my old pathfinder to hold fishing poles
    -have the same piece in the bed of my taco now
    -Use it on our pop-up camper to hold the poles for the wings (bolted to rear bumper)
    -used it to make a potato gun that uses 150 psi blast of compressed air instead of the good ole hairspray.....lets just say you neversee where your spud lands :D

    It had to be a joke but if you could that would make for an insanely cheap lift kit but it is too impractical.
