What have you done to it already? There is a thread for beginners mods of interest... Search around for it. Has a lot of good ideas.

Yeah sorry. It's an 01' 4x4 supercab 4.0L v6 4.10 gears dual magniflow exhaust straight out the back 32x10.50x16 nitto terra grapplers. Already blacked out head lights and gonna do the night shading of the tails. Just cranked the torsion bars a little bit(how many turns did y'all crack your T bars).

One of my favorate cheap mods that I have done to my truck. Rattlecan racing stripes, I get tons of compliments as the gas station. Just take your time, pick a cool color, measure, mark, tape, mask, spray three light coats. Let dry well before removing the tape.

Paint 10 bucks
Tape 5 bucks
Old Newpaper free
Labor free

Total cost $15.00

Just make sure you dont press teh tape down too hard or it'll pull the paint off your truck, and you want to hold the spray can as close as possible to the truck.
