    I've got an extra 500 burning a hole in my pocket that I was going to put towards something for my truck. Right now she sits pretty stock besides little things like window tint. Here are some of my thoughts, just wondering if you all have any other suggestions.

    1. Husky Xact Fit Floor Mats
    2. Leveling kit/Bilsteins???
    3. More aggressive tire??? My local Wally World has the Falken's for under $675
    4. Underseat rear storage -ESP is running a fathers day sale
    5. Color Matched Grill Surround

    Any other suggestions? Thoughts?

    Lol

    I would do the husky mats, and under seat storage then save the rest for a bigger upgrade. Thats how I’ve been doing it do little shit in between the bigger stuff. I’m about to start ordering my lift now that I’ve almost paid off the tonneau cover.

    First thing I would add/change on a stock SR5 with a few hundred bucks would be a rear TRD sway bar, Wheeler’s SuperBumps replace the bumpstops on the rear side in the front, and Husky mats front/back.

    Protects the floor all seasons, immediately improves cornering/body roll, and pothole/bump rebounds.

    You could go to Home Depot and buy a bucket of white paint. Not as good as OEM Super White, but it would probably add 15 to 20 HP to a slow gray truck....:poking:

    So much you could do...but I'd do something like a ceramic coat or similar to protect the paint. I had mine ceramic coated and love it. Easy to wash and care for now as well.

    I'd choose the more aggressive tires if you can get that for around that amount.

    I just bought some tires and wheels from a 2018 TRD that somebody was selling on craigslist for $1000 with 10 miles on them, and sold my 5 spoke alloy wheels and tires with 200 miles on them for $750.

    I paid a little under 700. But I had bad scratches from mountians in it as well that they detailed the whole thing then did the ceramic.
