Re: Few simple mods

Fuel economy is a myth when you add performance parts, the more HP you generate the more fuel you'll use. Cheaper mods are a computer chip (superchips/hypertech), and a cold air intake kit with exhaust. All three will run around $1200 depending on what you want exactly. As far as looks go, a fiberglass hood will save weight but it'll cost about $500 or so with just primer, meaning you'll have to paint it your truck colour and install it with a friend. That's where I would start. You may also find that some hoods come with a cold air intake kit (ram air) for better overall performance.

Re: Few simple mods

lift, tires and rims... even if its a small one makes a BIG difference with the look of the truck. Looks and performance are two totally diffent directions. What kinda truck is it?
