    working from home im able to get my work done in an hour, leaving me a majority of the day for projects. Problem is nothing is open, Amazon is slow, and im trying to be frugal w/ my money for the time being...

    Long story short, does anyone have any ideas for some low budget (< $150), mods/projects that can be done at home?

    ive already detailed every surface, cleaned up my wiring, tuned my audio system, and everything else i could personally think of. i might pull off and paint my skid plate. it doesnt need it. but im bored.... help!20200222_170718.jpg

    Have a go a tinting the windows? Watch some YouTube vids if you’ve never done it. It’s one of my first go to mods on a newbie.

    Edit- badass rig!

    Buy yourself a welder and learn to weld. I've got projects running out of my ears. I love being able to make whatever I want.

    Detailing cost <$150 and will be great for the truck. Remember to do the inside, engine bay and wheel wells too.

    rotate your tires, change your oil, add windshield washer fluid, and squirt some grease into something should be way under budget. Hell for added fun change the batteries in both you fobs

    I've been practicing my grinding skills. I've been told they are important for a beginning welder. :)

    I'm going to practice vinyl wrapping some interior pieces. I wrapped a vent ring and the cup holder bezel many months back, but never finished the rest. Cheap project that just takes time.

    I've been thinking about trying my hand at cerakot. That wouldn't be too expensive to try out. You could do some pretty cool stuff with it

    Detail and a wash/wax for me. It will feel like a brand new truck again. Not a really a mod, but a good way to pass time.
