Paint your faded honey comb grille or all your faded out plastic back to its original color or a nice black like I did.

I haven't installed one on my truck yet but an Autodimming mirror/compass is always a nice upgrade. I've got a few in the basement just need to find the time to throw one in my F-150. It's a great mod that's a fairly quick and easy install.

Tightening up your throttle body on the gas pedal with some zip ties gives a quicker response, and also the famous gotts mod will give an increase in power.

Is that a completely custom job, or are there replacement lights that are swapped out there? I never pay attention to know if there's even stock lights under there

On some there's an existing light in the cupholder, I used the existing harness for that to power the led strips in each cupholder and the strip in the cubby. They're just 3 led strips like what I used for the raptor lights, I cut them off the roll I used for his floor lights

you can buy a roll of 5 meter LED strips for $10 on eBay. I can get anybody a link if they specify what color they want
