I'd do wheels and tires first. that seems to always have the biggest affect.

I think your first "mod" should be showing R-F pics!!! Lol

How about some details about it in the meantime.. miles, auto/manual, etc.

Your not going to put an RCD unless you get lucky and find it used, they don't make them anymore.

Theres probably a couple places right now but I bet that won't last too long, it sounds like he isn't ready to buy it anytime soon.

I think the first "mod" you should do is fix the arm rest and clean the interior! Nice truck though
