my opinion on any thing I have ever worked on was....cd player the day i get it if not factory installed, then motor out...Example..fix up the motor, then do the interior, the rims/tires, then save up and do the paint job right. O and def. do a TW chip I love mine.

yea I figured most people would say a chip. The only thing I'm hesitant about for putting a custom chip in is that I just had some work done with the engine to fix some oil leaks and a diesel leak and I also had to replace my front differential which was over 3K, I'm just worried about toastin my engine putting a chip in
