    Add gas about every 250 miles or so, it really increases the power of the truck and makes it last at least 250 miles longer.

    My favorite and best mod yet is the supercharger, so much fun, had it about a year. The auburn LSD is in process, will be hard pressed to choose 1st or 2nd best.

    Tint. Cheap, fast, and makes a huge difference in many ways. Keeps the truck cooler in the summer, which also means slightly better mileage since the compressor does not have to run as much. No hot sun beating on you even when the air is on. Keeps that fabric looking better by cutting the UV rays. No more bright lights in your side view mirrors at night. The list goes on and on.

    Toku:
    I disagree with you on the weathertechs. I have them too but I dont think they are worth the money. Yes, the fit is perfect, but nothing on the bottom of them to stop them from sliding around makes the passenger front one suck. 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 love my weathertechs! It's the 2nd thing I buy behind window tint in every vehicle I've had in the past 6 years. I love being able to sweep out my floor and saving my carpet from mud, beach sand, etc. Then again, I don't have kids jumping in and out of my truck so I haven't had the tripping issue arise.

    What about the passenger front? Have you noticed it sliding forward yet? A lot of guys on here use velcro on the bottom to stop it from sliding. I have not yet done that but plan to, just have not yet had the time. I just think for the money they charge they should make that one at least with dimples on the bottom so it does not slide.

    Don't usually have people in my truck much, even when I do it's just my wife and she's pretty light footed so no slipping issues yet. Too early to tell perhaps...

    Sticking to the OP guidelines.....

    1) Switch all fluids to synthetic
    2) Install LED lighting inside and out and HID headlamps and fogs.

    ...neither of which are first on my list. Hahahaha!!

    I have to say that I am shocked to see that no one has said to turn off that damned seat belt chime as #1. I have the weathertech mats. I do like them but they could be designed better. I wish the rear mat went down to the door sill instead of being like a tray on the edges. The front one does slide. I like all of my mods though. 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.
