    Well I was a lurker now an owner (I think I already replied to this thread) but after 4 months ownership & 5k miles. I’ve pretty much narrowed down to the following:

    Already done-
    Truxedo rollup tonneau
    Undercover swingcase toolbox
    Nokian snow studded snows (haven’t gotten rims yet for them but will get cheapest stock size that has a design I like keeping the stock beadlocks for nicer weather)

    Cleaned/sanded all bare metal on undercarriage primed/painted rear diff/axles & treated every piece of metal w/ 5 cans worth of Amsoil HDMP, my shocks & front lower A-arms I cleaned & put 2 coats of automotive clear on them.

    Xpel film - front fenders, partial hood, grill surround, & black plastic “A/B” pillars on doors,

    Tinted the pano roof- gets too hot in sun in warmer months + front windows.

    Planned mods for future-
    Shorty antenna
    Mihimoto or other Tranny cooler
    Larger/better Aftermarket intercooler in stock location
    Eibach front leveling springs
    Deaver +3 leafs
    LED+amber cube lights on bumper
    Cobb accessport w/ custom tune maybe MPT or gearhead
    Linex coating on front skid plate

    Mods that may not be relevant in higher trims (I have an optioned up 801A)
    -getting custom leather cover for center armrest black w/ red stripe going to upholstery shop
    Pulling door panels, adding dynamat & replacing speakers w/ JL or focal & adding small sub/amp
    Swapping out shifter & front dash trim for carbon fiber OEM

    Agree with above completely. Though it hasn’t prevented me from modding like crazy in the 4 months since I got my beast. Truck is great as is, but if you have time, money and the inclination, there’s so much more potential for to make the appearance personal, get the lighting to your exact needs, or increase performance in a variety of ways. It’s such a blank slate in some respects, its’ just hard NOT to mess with it.

    I never planned to do all this but it’s just plain fun, and if you have the money and inclination, go for it; reading this forum was key for me to figure out what I wanted to do. There are so many good ways to change up your beast and I’m guessing no two Modders have done it the same way.

    Yeah, must mods...... Nothing.

    Want to do mods...... Everything!
