That's a ton 'o stuff! I've got the Kappa's in my rig and love them. I would check out the SCT X-Calibrator 2 before I got the Jet chip though. With the Jet it's a one shot deal as far as the programming goes. With the X-Cal you can change the paramaters of the programming, do datalogging, and have up to three different tunes depending on what you want for performance and octane ratings.

I'm not a huge fan of the taillights, but my opinion isn't what counts. Have fun with the mods!

all look like good mods with the exception of the tuner....get the X-Cal and do it right. Also, if your windows arent already tinted, that would be a nice addition as well as maybe a tonneu cover or a spray in bed liner.

I'd stay away from Jet-CHips and go with a programable entity. SCT or something.

Not a bad list .

Yea stay away from the jet chips, and your just paying for a name if you buy that K+N intake, I have a MAC, I got it for 150 from underdog and it has a nice chrome tube. Other than that, its a pretty good list, have fun.

ok, i was just looking for a few more horses.. ill drop the jet, how much is the x cal thing? and window tint is a good idea, i thought of that last night, and yea ima get a spray bed liner, theres a local guy who will do the liner for me, ill have him do mine and my girlfriends at the same time.. i also reembered i wanted to get some racing seats, has anyone got seats from kragen? how good are they? i dont want to spend a crap load on them cuz i use it as a work truck and i get pretty dirty...
lol again last night when i was thinking, i thought how funny it would be to make a rrod trailer hitch cover, n when you hit the brakes the three red lights start glowing, it would be funny since my 360 died... i wanted to mount the 360 as a hood ornament but thats a lil extreme but a hitch cover would be great.. does anyone know if anyone has made one b4? i was thinking of how i can make one, i could use vinyl since i have a vinyl cutting machine but i couldnt figure out how i would get it mounted to the the hitch thing and have it last a long time... (not glue) the other problem i have is i need a tow package so i can put one on my truck... lol

check on ebay for taillights, but remember you get what you pay for and check underdog's website for the xcal/SCT tuners (stuffforyourrangers.com) or something like that
