Zach, now total everything up. Mine was almost 14k. If you think about it, we could buy a decent Cobra or something of that nature if you add all that up & the cost of the truck. lol

audio- about $4000
the rest of the truck- about $2000

i don't plan on putting anymore money into this truck... i'd like to, but i really need to find something bigger and practical.

since the audio can and will be removed when i get rid of the truck, i'm down to $2000 invested that i won't get back... not too shabby.

I have no idea of where to even start. My truck used to have a lift kit on it, then I lowered it, then bagged it, went through several paint jobs, wheels, front clip, interior stuff, and tons of suspension work. I know I could have bought my truck about 2 or 3 times with all the money I have put into it.

Actually.. When your going to ' play ', your gonna ' pay '. I don't complain about the money spent as *I* chose to do it. Anyone whom starts to do something different or way off base from the factory design.. Its going to cost a bit.

1300 front axle
550 tires
200 rims
200 beadlocks
450 for links
150 for coils
