    I would suggest BF Goodrich AT tires. Or a lot of that cigarette bubble gum.

    What do you use your truck for. Are you a wheeler? Do you need more storage... like a bed cap?

    You can change all the drivetrain to synthetic oil. Change sparkplugs... maybe a CAI or an exaust.

    One of the cheapest mods that you can do for a little hp and gas milage would be doing the deck plate mod. all it cost me was like 15 dollars for the deck plate and took about 2 hrs cause im some what of a noob.
