    Like I said, the thread title is misleading. Seatbelt chimes don't fit the bill.

    Its not the 2 best mods, its the two best mods to insure/promote longevity.

    Window tint keeps the sun out and increases the longevity of your interior. Floor mats keep the outside elements from wrecking your carpet which increases the longevity of the carpet life. How is the thread misleading exactly?

    My bad, misread what you said. "Thread title", agreed.

    I got a kick out of the posts suggesting adding fuel and changing the oil -- but, seriously, what MODS are gonna make the truck last longer, look better or make it more useful or convenient?

    Hmmmm...

    First thing I did was add a color-matched Line-X spray-in bedliner. Now, I can actually stand up in the bed when it's wet or has even a little snow lubricating the slippery paint.

    Second thing is to add running boards that lower and turn on LEDs whenever you open a door. They're more than a little spendy, but having 'em up against the rocker panels means they're not so snow-packed when you need 'em most. Well, maybe this isn't a priority if your wife hasn't had a knee replaced recently.

    Added an inverter to run Christmas light in our local holiday parade.

    Lookin' for a reciever insert that allows me to drop in the loop on my tow strap. More thn one guy around here spends the winter with the tow strap in the bed, one end through the locking hitch pin.

    Next thing I wanna do is add a bed cover. My favorite is the Undercover brand, 'cause you can stand on it,but it's still lightweight. The wife and I can take it off easily, but it still foils luggage thieves. You can crawl up on it to wash the roof, too.

    When the carpet floor mats wear down (probably about one winter hereabouts), I'd love to replace em with something that'll catch the snow and won't drip the water all over when and if the heater gets warm enough to melt stuff down on the floor. (we haven't seen a high temp above twenty in over a week.)

    Not gonna improve mileage or performance, but I really like the new grill from the top-of-the line Tundras after about 2010. Does Sparks still sell that with the hardware needed to put it on my '07?

    I'm getting old enough that a bed step might be nice -- though I can still jump to a seated position on the tailgate, and squirm upright from there.

And the huge raised edge on the rear seems like a bit of an afterthought that my kids constantly trip over when getting in. I just think that for the money they charge they shouldnt slide around and they could have done better.
    And one question. What type of tonneau do you have and how much was it if you dont mind me asking. Not now, but I will get one some time and have just started looking around. But they seem to be really expensive.
    I'm planning to get the Extang Solid Trifold cover part #56801 if you have bed rails or 56800 if you don't. The best price I can get that cover here in Hawaii is $900. But I like it because it's solid, and it can be put on or taken off in a matter of minutes.

    I had the weathertech's in my Tacoma and they worked well. Never had issue of it sliding?? But we'll see how it works for my Tundra.

    Thanks for the info. It's only about $100 less on the mainland. Someday I will get one. Maybe late fall.
    By sliding on the weathertechs I mean passenger front mat. It slides forward. A lot of guys on here have said the same thing. Where it rides up the A pillar by the kick panel it kind of folds back and holds that shape. It's sort of minor, but an annoyance for the price. I just dont like the idea of having to glue some velcro to the bottom of it to stop if from moving.

    I'd say an aftermarket Remote Start & 2-way Alarm system would be first for the following reasons:
    *Warms up engine in cold weather - extends engine life, better than running cold from the get-go.
    *Warms up INTERIOR in cold weather - I mean, who doesn't like that?
    *2-Way alarm notifies you when your alarm is going off and extends the range for which you can start your engine or lock/unlock your truck. (with a clear sight line I've started my truck from almost a mile away)

    2nd I invested in a bedcover, as the back seat on a DC can only hold so much. I went with the UnderCover basic black (unfinished) model, msrp somewhere around $800. Keeps snow and ice off your stuff in the bed, and makes for a quick clean up during football (tailgating) season! Just throw it in the back, lock the lid, and sort it out after the game.

    My 2 cents, anyway.

Running boards keep the edge of the seat from being worn too much. Tint keeps the sun out. Also have weathertech window visors and bug shield.
    Good call on the seatbelt chime. It drove me crazy so I went to the dealer and asked that it be disabled. Service adviser told me they could not do it, it's a safety issue. Later while talking to the mechanic, I asked him to disable it and he did it right in front of me on the computer.

    I am going to have to say the tinted windows 20% on the sides and 5% on the back window, cooler in the summer and I love the privacy. The most important out of everything is replacing that crappy stock stereo with my Pioneer 1400DVD stereo. What a difference in sound quality coming from the speakers, those stock speakers are not bad.
    MODs: 20% tint on all side windows and 5% tint on the back window, blue LED dome lights and map reading lights, nerf bars, bedliner, tri-fold tonneau cover, full synthetic oil, CURT class 3 hitch (my truck didn't come with one). Pioneer AVH 1400DVD, liscense plate backup camera.

    Furture mods: Exhaust, 20" rims with 275/60-20 Falken tires, and 2.5 front leveling kit
