    If money is an issue- Don't buy that stuff??

    Get a better muffler and install it on the stock tubing without paying for the TRD name/whole kit.
    Get a useful skid plate if you plan on wheeling or skip it
    Get the Toyota roof rack if you want to buy anything from Toyota...

    Not sure what you goals with an exhaust are- but I bet you can get a new muffler welded in for cheaper than 250.

    Not sure what your goal with the skid plate is- but if you want a real skid plate, you are wasting money ordering the TRD one. If you want it for hte looks....go for it.

    The roof rack...Go for it.

    Dude, It up to you. What do you NEED the most and what do you wanna see on your truck. Its your truck and most importantly your money, so I would not let forum members decide on what your vehicle
