    So I can't decide what I want to do next because they all have their own benefits. I can't afford it all right now, so what are your thoughts on these:

    A - Morimoto XB LED Fog Lights [​IMG]
    B - ESP Under seat storage (plastic) [​IMG]
    C - Huskey floor liners [​IMG]
    D - Interior LEDs [​IMG]
    E - TRD Pro grille [​IMG]
    F - 1.25 Spidertrax wheel spacers - $99+
    G - Front grille LED light bar - $ ?
    H - Retrofit front Headlights - $800 [​IMG] (Ordered)
    I - Raptor style Amber LEDs [​IMG]
    J - Cold Air Intake - $300
    K - Upgrade exhaust - $ ?
    L - Tail Lights - $300
    M - Tow Mirrors [​IMG] (Ordered)

    That's all I can think of right now, haha. Anything I'm forgetting, besides tires/wheels and lift?

    Just got the Husky liners last week and they are awesome. Shop your grill you can find it cheaper than $450. Don't do wheel spacers it will ruin your truck, speaking from experience. (nothing worse than feeling your vehicle loose a wheel)

    All good ideas. I'd go with the ESP under seat storage first.

    Really? You had a wheel fall off, ouch. I've seen a lot of other guys say great things about them, humm.

    I can get the grill through parts at cost, then pay a guy $50 to paint it Silver Sky for me and install it myself. Have you seen it painted and cheaper?

    True, that is one of the few that would be a true addition and not just to replace something already on the truck.

    Don't know what grill you have, I plasti dipped mine its a platinum grill. It's held up surprising well through several car washes. Did this temporarily until I ordered a pro grill, but I might just keep it.

    Personally, I like to do the protection mods first (line x, floor liner, etc), then functional mods (storage, etc.), then esthetic mods. I don't always follow this, however, haha.

    Yeah, the only problem is the grill and headlights are the more expensive ones to do, ha. I can do those, or several of the smaller ones.

    Mine is the normal SR5 grill, so I'm trying to get the body color surround and get rid of all the chrome. I really like how the TRD grill looks and is different from 90% of the Tundra's out there you see on the road.

    From your wishlist ... I'd go either grill or headlamps. They offer the biggest "wow" factor behind wheels and a lift.

    I think spacers would look great bringing your wheels out with your fender flares. Sorry to see Oldman Tundra had a bad experience with them.

    Lack of storage space is a real issue with CMs, all down hill after that..ha!

    No, sorry. The retrofit would be $550+ from what I've seen. The Spyder lights are the $350 or so

    Yeah, I agree the spacers would look good with the flares and are pretty cheap compared to the rest of the list, haha. $99 at 4wheelparts. I have a Visa gift card for $150, so I can essentially get those free, ha. Oldman does bring up a concern though, so I'll have to investigate, but lot of other guys here have them and they work great. Humm...

    I like that as well for added protection, storage, and visibility. I would like to figure out how to wire the fog lights to be on even with the lights off.

    Do you have a link for the light bar you got? I think i want to get one that would fit in the opening right above the license plate in the lower bumper. Like this one, but set it on the back side:

    Definitely protection and function first. Mats and storage. They're also the cheapest to do. Then make it pretty.

    That makes the most sense to me and pretty much along with everyone else and my thoughts as well. I can get the Huskey mats from 4wheel parts here local for the same price as online. Have to pay tax, but o'well.

    Well the guy at 4wheel parts told me he wouldn't recommend the wheel spacers. Same thing, he had a buddy whose broke and a wheel came off. Yikes..

    I say do those mods. That's what I did.. It's like going up hill with the big purchases then going downhill for the cheaper purchases.
