    I have $5,000 to upgrade my 800a 2014 raptor. It is fully stock other than 3m window tint and a dealer spray in bedliner.

    What did/would you guys do if you have $5,000 to spend on yours? Engine mods, exterior mods, or something else? What would you do again or what do your regret?

    Lets see what everyone has done!

    Svc front & rear bumper with 30" light, method rims, and a svc tune should put you close to 5k.

    Let's see though. Current mods

    ADD bumper(used $1100)
    M&R 40 inch (used $300)
    Icom and Lowrance($1000)
    37" Nittos ($2000)

    Alpha 1 bed rack ($1000)
    RPG stage 2($1500)
    M&R lights ($900)

    I've asked myself this question multiple times - unfortunately I have come up with multiple answers... Once you start down this path you mise well call it the "first 5k"
