MOD ideas?!?

Light I need new mods. The two big ones I got coming up are 33s and like a 3 inch lift. I want small mods. Circle taillights I was thinking of a winch but all I can affor is maybe a 2000-3000 lb. worthless without snatch blocks. Any ideas guys?

I might have to save a little. I was thinking in like 200 dollar range. That is a good price though

Pop out the drainage plug, run a tube from the drainage plug to a funnel - and voila you no longer have to stop on road trips.

If you are getting a 3" lift and 33's, might be better off moving a few other things up in the mod -priorities, like SYE, DC tailshaft, Adjustable Control Arms, new rear bumper with RWC for starters.
