IF I'd would have kept a running total....I think I would have shot myself....twice. Maybe $3,000 in the last 4 years. The first year was just a few had to haves ( bed liner , bed cover ) before winter. The next year was the face lift and painted rear bumper then the new summer rims and tires and them the shocks and new tires for the factory rims. Still looking at an exhaust kit.....

hmmm humm..... bought the truck brand new in 2008 for 25,000 out the door...
combined with all the mods listed below.. total spent in the last 3 years comes to about $40,000, not including probably a couple thousand in oil changes and some other repair work :(... now where did I put that bottle of scotch...

EDIT: forgot.. its financed... 2 years left at 377 a month. Also have money owed on a line of credit.. hard to say how much is from my truck and how much is from other toys/tools i've bought.. but I try to put about 500 a month into that too... so with financing, insurance, credit, and gas.. I spend a good $1500 - $1800 a month on my truck :(

leer cap.... 2000
tonneau.... 1000
tool box.... 450
line-x for tool box...350
stereo/speakers/sub 1000
superlift/prekey/shackles/leafsprings etc... 6/7000
tires 1300 MTZ
tires again 1300 Duratrac
rims... 700
other small mods... 500 approx
