Decisions on B-Day mods

Well ill be turning 20 at the end of july and im trying to decide what i want to get for my birthday. ive been wanting to get a black daimond plate toolbox so that i can get a bunch of junk out of the cab. But i also would like the get a decent stereo system to replace the stock on. Then the other day i was looking around tractor supply and found an 8000lb winch for around $350, and im wondering if its any good. If i go for the winch ill have to get a front hitch also, which ive been wanting for a while. Anybody have any suggestion as to what i should choose.

black diamond plate toolbox

stereo system

winch/front hitch

Agreed^

Since your 2WD I wouldn't imagine you'd put yourself in situations where you'd need it, but you never know.

Go stereo then tool box.

For stereo are you talking about like a full headunit, speakers, sub and amp system or just speakers. You can get the toolbox for like 200-300 but a decent system will run you 500+ easy.

Stereo... like Trent said, the complete set-up can get expensive and a PITA to piece together... you could get a sick toolbox on craigslist for CHEAP if you just keep your eyes open...

A little tip for ya... don't be afraid to drive a little (you can always turn it into a Ranger meet) or better yet... if you know you're gonna go somewhere/see someone from somewhere else keep and eye on THEIR CL... might work out... I know it has for me
