Hit eBay and see what you can get for $150 or save up a little more and get a bull bar

How about an electric fan? Greatly reduces the amount of work your engine has to perform by replacing the crank-powered stock fan with a seperately mounted and powered E-fan. Less power spent on fan = more power available to the rear wheels. Lowers gas mileage, too.

clear corners
tail lights
headlight bulb swap
Mustang Dome light
that should add up to $150
any money left over swap out the turn signal bulbs & cargo lights with LEDS
