    I would say a lift to level out the truck and maybe some new tires and rims... Also i would upgrade your headlights to Xenons much brighter... Check out the link in my sig.

    Put most of it in stock as Rob mentioned. Or save it for unexpected expenses. And spend some on inexpensive mods.

    Just my opinion (And yes I own these):
    AAPL-Apple or RIMM-Blackberry. When the market turns around these stocks will double or triple in value. If I had $4500 I would invest in several stocks now.

    Oh contrair! (or however it's spelled :p)

    Think of the stock market as a long term investment as well. The market ALWAYS goes up in the long term. So, right now, it's like the stock market is going through a 40% sell. Buy now while it's cheap and hang on to it.

    That being said, do your research on any company into which you want to invest. Don't just say "ennie mennie miny moe"...

    All I can say, if I had $4,500 to spend. Long Travel Kit, new wheels/tires, skid plates, slider,bumper. and a ScangaugeII if you don't already own one. I am sure you could get this all for $4,500.
