nice truck you got there. first thing i'd do was remove the dealer tag on the front license plate, lol.

after that, i dunno.. for looks, maybe look at getting the windows tinted, cover for the bed, a nice set of lights for the front (ask redneckson, he'll tell you whats what), umm, maybe a set of rims for now, that way you can still use the stock tires till they wear down. that would be good to get you going.

or you could do like i do and dump it into audio.. for 1000 you could get an amp and sub to start out with.. that is, if you're into that sort of thing.

Nice truck, first thing that I notice you can do from the pics and is free is crank those torsion bars to level it out. It looks like a race car right now lol, mine was the same way when I got it.

Secondly I would go with programmer, exhaust and then a intake but peiced together to get the most for your money.

sounds good.

you've got a pretty solid list of things to do appearance wise to the outside of your truck for now.. from here on, its pretty much up to you to decide which you'd like to do first

First thing I would do is get a spray in bed liner. Line-x was my first mod and I love it.

get rid of the crapyears asap. if you dont wanna lift it yet you can do 32x11.5x15 ($400-$500ish) on some black rock crawlers ($180ish) and then dual exhaust ($200ish) with the rest of the $$ i personally love the look of black rims on a red truck. itll look mean sound mean and tear it up offroad. hurry up and do it and get some pics lol

My higlights:

New stereo, w/ MP3 support..
AC Override switch (I still keep faith that it saves me a few bux in fuel)
Auto/up down.. at least on the driver's side
A hitch, or at least a ball for the step bumper

Those are the mods I probably use the most..

are you paying for the gas, or are your parents?

i wouldnt get a lift because of gay gas prices, but thats me

id tint the front windows to be as dark as your back ones, thatll cost like nothing at all. then id do exhaust, id also get silverstars

i dunno what id do with the extra money though, i guess the 33's with body lift wouldnt mess with gas prices too bad.
