    $5,000... hmm... *sigh* :okay2: if that were like 1960s exchange rates then hell yeah...

    As it stands $5K couldn't do shit for my truck :flame: at this point. I be needin' to sell something on the black market to finance my aims nowadays

    I bought this truck with the intention to leave it stock. I figured I spent tons of money on all my other cars and I wouldn't have to on this. Haven't even had it a week and I'm planning on CAI, exhaust, tune, and maybe rims. The wife is going to kill me lol.

    Having spent significantly more than 5k since the last time I discussed this, I think the best course of action is:

    Deaver's, bumps, wheels + tires, tune and a light bar

    I'd buy the required items to participate in all these events.

    Normally I would say keep the truck stock and spend the 5K on a dirt bike. But that doesn't help our paychecks at SVC so keep up the good work!

    For the next 5K really ask yourself how you use the truck. Heavy pre-running, slow trail style stuff, street only. Make a pro and con list and gear it towards what will get you the most out of your truck for your needs.

    Jarrett is right. What are your plans. Hell, recovery gear can cost you almost $500 if not more.
