There are a lot of threads, comments, and pictures about "higher" dollar modifications we've made to our trucks. Lifts, tires, wheels, steps, covers, liners, tint, audio/video, exhaust, intake, etc...
I thought I start a thread of "lower" dollar modifications. I know that inexpensive is a moving target for people. We do have some very creative, very crafty, and some downright sneaky people on this forum. I figure that this thread might ultimately give out some inexpensive ideas for the rest of us to jump on.
I'm setting the target at $50 and under. Here's the plan. State what you've done. A brief description of how you built it if it's a homemade idea. An estimated cost of time and/or labor. Finally, add a picture if you have it.
Here's mine. It's really basic.
I bought a 2x6 pressure treated and cut it down to serve as a bed divider. I put it toward the back of the bed in the channels. It keeps the groceries and other small stuff I'm hauling from sliding all over the bed (meaning, I don't have to climb into the bed to find what sloshed around on the drive home). The board is 66" and I angled the bottom edges. Total cost, under $10. Spent 15 minutes measuring 50 times and cutting three times.
I leave the board in there 24/7. Never been stolen from any of the three trucks I've had over 10+ years. Although I have had a couple of them warp after a few years and I've replaced them.
