Cool Cheap Mods?

Just looking for ideas to make my truck more unique. Don't have to be too cheap, maybe a couple hundred bucks. I'm ordering 08+ tow mirrors tomorrow, but wanting some more exterior mods without going overboard.

There is headlights. You can get clear ones like on 03-04 models or you can go to '05 style. Either style, you could put LEDs in the turn signals. There's LED taillights, LED 3rd brake light. You could go cab lights, if you don't already have them.

Tube steps on the side or Amp Research retractable steps.

Just to name some.

Yeah, already have different headlights with halos, led taillights, led 3rd brake light, led bar under tailgate. I have steps, but there's not much use for them since my truck is pretty short haha.

They don't even necessarily have to be exterior mods (yes I know this is the exterior part of the forum) just cool, or funny things to do. For instance, I just put an oogah horn on my 1970 CJ5, and I get a kick out of it. I wouldn't dare put anything like that on my truck, but I've thought about putting semi horns on there. Just get creative people

Anyone know where I can get those illuminated fender emblems for my year model? I can only find them for new ones anymore.

Race sport makes a ghost light , a projector pod that u put in your door panel underneath so when you open your door it illuminates a logo and whatnot to the ground. Idk what your into.
Trainhorn kits are around 200 and up. Easy n fun
Tint looks great
Upgraded exterior lighting
Have your handles and plastics or chrome painted
Little things that add up!
