Default Cheap Mods

So my birthday is coming up and my parents keep asking me what I want and I dont know what to tell them, I know I want something for the truck but I dont know what, so I need your help. Im looking for some stuff to add to the appearance of the truck for fairly cheap. Thanks a lot!

eBay black headlights are always a good option.... or doing them yourself for next to nothing. Or at bare minimum clear corners are a nice addition.



Blacking out your exterior plastics is also a good choice.

What do you mean by blacking out my plastics? Which plastics are you referring to?

I would do the body lift but I dont have the tools to install it myself and i dont think getting someone to do it for me will be cheap

Your flares and valence. You asked for exterior mods and honestly, I like a clean truck so I only suggested the things that are gonna be clean lookin'. Add vent visors to the mix up too. Oh...and newer '06+ corner lenses and taillights are nice touches to think about.

Take a peek at Ranger101's truck. He did his flares and valence in black and he's also got blacked out headlights and corners...

Ok I wont go with the ricer ones lol, I do like the black plastics, is that something I can order or do I do it myself somehow?

I also like ranger101's type of blacked out headlights do you know if they were an ebay special as well?

Exterior plastics : get yourself a few cans of Krylon Fusion Satin Black or Flat Black paint. Krylon Fusion is designed to be used on plastics and many have painted their stuff with it and get very good results. I prefer to remove the pieces from the truck, but some folks mask 'em on the truck and spray away. Wal Mart carries Fusion products. Or just PM Ranger101 or maybe he's got a thread about his truck and mods, I don't know.

Headlights : Ranger101 did his own. Check the how-to section of our site for the how-to on doing them yourself. I've got the eBay ones on my truck now and I know locals with 'em too and they're just as good as Ford brand housings. Great for when I was too lazy to redo my lights I first did 3 years ago and the 10 year old lense were pitting very badly already. lol. Great quality product and it gives you the opportunity to flip flop your lights from time to time to change the look of the truck.
