What are your future mods?

I don't know if this thread has been made before but I thought I would make one anyways.

Just post what you want to do in the future to your truck, maybe a realistic category and an unrealistic category.

Realistic:
-06+ corners
-OHC
-Hitch
-Power windows/locks/mirrors swap
-Front standard tow hooks
-Strip stock wheels and re-clear them.
-Upgrade to 4 wheel disk brake (cant decide to put it in realistic or unrealistic)
-FULL SIZE MOD
-WAY down the road... DURAMAX

Unrealstic:
-Stock 4x4 swap
-Manual to auto swap
-Dual din navi unit

Most of the things I wanna do that cost alot of money are because it will increase my trucks value at resale time!
