    Wheels keep stock tires if you can for awhile, good bed cover if you live where it snows, good set of fog lights.

    Don't tint the moonroof. They'll shatter with too much heat. $800 seems high, but AZ tint shops rip everyone off with tint prices. :notsure:

    $3k ain't enough to do anything worthwhile. Take it down to the casino put it all on black or red, if you win do it again; if you lose, the truck is perfectly good stock and you didn't need any of that stuff anyways.

    Wheels, tires, suspension, bumpers, winch...it's all connected. You can't do part of it and expect to be happy for very long.

    Buy all the high quality company stocks that are down now. Wait a few years then sell them and pay of your truck.

    The truth is, i'm just some wage slave retard fantasizing about shit I wanna do one day. I've already spent like $2000 in shit I got off the used market place. Here is my mod list.

    Retrax Tonneau I got off craigslist -$ 400
    Billie Bars - $600
    TuffStuff Alpha II RTT - I got it for $900 from a homie, it's needs to be repainted but it's pretty cool.

    I’d say best mod anyone can get is the OEM LED headlights. They are a game changer for sure. I made sure my new truck came with them.


    FYI 3k ain’t going to get you serious upgrades. Unless you come up on a used deal.

    4.3 to 4.88 swap and VFtune so the TC will lock in 2nd and 3rd.
