    I only listed things that made the bigger difference on my truck,

    How my build ended up..

    1. Lift
    2. Wheels
    3. Grill ( Grill Craft )
    4. BHLM ( black housing headlights )
    5. Projector Retrofit
    6. B.A.M.F. Rear Diff Skid/Slider w/Kick Out
    7. Plate Bumper ( Demello Off Road )
    8. Rear Bumper ( All Pro )
    9. LR UCA's
    10. ATO Skids

    I really want to do radio upgrade as it would make a huge difference in my truck but at this time it's not a priority. And of course the last few would only matter to some as some prefer the OEM look, or others go tube, but this is how my build went going by the top 10 mods that made a difference.
