    I'm sure I can't be the only one who wishes he had more money. In the spirit of saving money I'd like to know...

    ...what is the best money you've spent on your truck, fifty bucks or less?

    For me it's definitely the ImMrYo rearview mirror bracket I installed. Drove a friends tacoma the other day and had forgotten just how low that thing was initially.

    How about you?

    I taped a penny on the base of the clutch arm (6 speed) to reduce the distance of the clutch travel. It made for smooth shifting as the clutch has excess travel. You have to push the clutch quite a ways before it even starts to engage and I found it messed up my shifting.

    Anyone have a cheaper mod than that? other than it being free? lol
