For less than $50 you can add LEDs to line the bed rails and still have enough connectors left over to do your front signal mirrors and even the center console:

I'm interested in this mod. Can you share or message me how you wired this up? I really like the mirrors.

I made this plate from a scrap piece of anodized aluminum using an engraving machine.

That is a fantastic plate! Great job.

My favorite is my homemade center console:

OR the tie downs at the front of the bed (bed buddy type functionality) using E track.

I think the best mod I did for under $50 is I took the mirror turn signal mod one step further and made it a turn signal / running light. More on this at this thread. Start reading at post #116.
