well i got mine for like 2800. wheels and tires were about 600 something, box was 110, exhaust was another 235, bedliner kit was 40 on sale, steering wheel was 60 and that's with installation kit. lift coils were 150 and shocks were 70 for both in the front, flares were 20 buck, 4x4 valance was 10, so that comes to about 4000 for truck and mods put together lol

I did the math with the cost of everything Ive added to the truck thats still on the truck and my number comes out $4831.00 rounding off change and not including tax, shipping, maintenance stuff, or little things Ive needed during installs and such. Also not counting the lift, grill, exhaust, or headunit since those were on the truck when I got it.

truck was around $16,500 or so. Plus tax, and financing charges and the bedliner it was around $18,500 (paying off early saves a TON of interest)

Access cover - $200
Umm spare headlights for the headlight mod - $40
Custom hood paint - Free unless you count the three hours to do it all.
PreKeys and installation - Barter for parts
Alignment cams and alignment - $70
PreCupholders - $30


So roughly $18,840

To much! When its paid off. I will have about 35 000 into it if I don't buy anything else for it. I've paid off about 7000 in the last year.


Don't ever buy a new truck. Just glad I got 0% financing.

I paid $18,500.00 and with the loan interest and extended warranty it came to approximately $25K

For the quick tally of repairs that I've kept track off and a few mods, another $10K. There's additional mods and maintenance that I didn't keep track off, and other body work repairs that I have invoices for, but really don't want to add it up.

I say in total repairs and mods and maintenance, I've spent over $12K

Looking back on how much I spent on additional stuff.........like a slap in the face. I could have spent that $12K on other things....LOL Ah well, it's the price we pay to have fun.
