    I want a lift, big brake kit, super charger, exhaust, recaro Seats, regearing, front bumper, winch, sliders, body armour, rear bumper, roof rack, satoshi grill, retrofits, foglights, front locker, rear locker, tires, rims and dvd/sound system but have no money currently so that makes me kinda sad but I am also optimistic that eventually when I move out and get a real job I will finally be able to afford all this without credit. On the bright side I love my 2009 sr5 4x4 access cab and I got it for free. So how do you guys afford all your mods and how much money have you spent on your truck so far. One day my truck will be complete and it is this that I am optimistic for. :)

    Slowly, One at a time man. Do what you need first, Do cheap mods to hold you off while saving for the bigger mods. The supercharger and regearing with Lockers are two BIG jobs The lift can be a pretty expensive penny depending on what you get. But like i said, One at a time. Keep your eye open in the sell section here for members selling there stuff off there trucks and get super good deals on Group buys. Be patient and your truck will be built up in no time.

    I work real hard and hopefully get overtime. After making the house payment, the utility bills, the food bills, paying for my kid's needs and college costs, taking care of business expenses I try to put at least a few bucks aside in a jar a week. It's a long process but mods are the last thing on my list of priorities. I'll get there eventually. Don't give up!

    I get money for mods by working alot and weeding out my bullshit costs. That being said, you don't see me out partying every weekend nor do I spend $5 on a coffee every morning...

    Someone say CRACK!? haha Yah i hate starbucks. Sorry but 5 dollars for your shitty coffee... No thanks. Il stick to my good old gas station French Vanilla :) I've come to realize having a girlfriend puts a big kink in truck modifications. No offense to the ladies, Im just saying, Wine and dining the lady is a must.

    Truck payment is being paid thanks to the Bank of Mom & Dad. The only mods that I have done are my radio, which was paid for by me. I work doing odd jobs whenever I can and save for my mods, next in line is LED head brake lights and a tool box.

    Can't really say i approve but i guess if mom and dad wants to, Then why refuse. LOL But you do realize they wont be an open wallet forever right? Someday your going to have to bring in the bread... The later you wait the harder it is.

    I work a lot of overtime. That helps a bit. Now if only I could find some way to not have to pay bills my truck would be built in a matter of months...
