    I voted tailgate lock simply because if you get your tailgate stolen it will cost a lot more then the $300 you have for mods. Plus it is only $70 cdn :)

    dont wast money on a gate lock, just do the tailgate lock mod using a hose clamp:D

    get something with a "cool" factor..haha
    I voted lightbar and lights, everytime you look at your truck you will see it and smile. I do.

    edit: or get some LEDs and change your gauge cluster color
