other than minor adjustments, there really isnt any mods that are "free" unless you score some free parts somehow.

you can put back the plastic body clip and use color matched paint to blend it in your color of the truck, doesn't even need to be expensive paint either just something close from lowes or homedepot becuase it is such a small area.
