Hey guys,
ive been having a lot of trouble finding any real sites that have parts and mods readily available. so i figure id start a discussion on ideas and thought of certain mods. im well aware of mods like how to make a high flow air box out of your stock box without cutting or drilling.

but im wondering if anyones created things of their own that they would like to share. ill be happy to share the many mods ive already found on the web.

now i didnt do any digging to see if theres a thread like this, but id like to stick to new model trucks as i have a 06 and dont plan on buying a 80's or 90's model any time soon.

Lets see what you've got

im getting ready to crank up my torsion bar, its simple and all you need to pay for is the front end realignment, im also gonna be putting some new tires on after i do the tbar, im adding blue LED light strips under my drivers and passenger side leg room areas (probably a technical term for those that i dont know about) haha im putting back up/cargo lights on the back and idk if you guys have seen those brake light strips that go right under the tailgate, its like a long strip of red dots that light up when you brake and half light up and are in sync with your blinker. im gonna throw a rock gaurd on the front

98 and up sounds good!

pagemaster, im not sure how your gonna crank your torsion bars, im 99% sure you have to have 4wd to do this. if you have coil overs you cant.

Z7What, nice list! im stuck with a 4 year warranty i paid way to much for, so im limited to the things i can modify :sad:

oh well lol.

one thing you guys can do instead of buying a CAI (cold air intake) is pull your airbox apart and remove the tube and box that goes into the airbox. it will open up the flow with a less restrictive oval hole. ill get a write up and some pics of the process soon. it takes about 5 minutes and with a highflow air filter it does wonders, plus gives you the sound of a CAI. its helped my MPG go up to 21 in the city too.:icon_hornsup:
