Talking How Much "Cabbage" Have You Put Into Your PSD?

I've seen a lot of threads that have asked: "what/how many mods does your truck have" or "what's your favorite mod". My question is: How much money do you HAVE in mods? Doesn't matter if it's performance or accesories, interior or exterior, tires, rims, N20, Propane, water/meth, train horns, air horns, stereo systems, cbs, etc. Even ANY repairs. Whatever you have put into your truck(sans fuel), how much is your tally?

For the longest time, all my mods/repairs had added up to about $8000(+/-). Recently, I just rebuilt my trans & the performance parts aspect was about $1900. I also had to replace/update certain parts in the trans & it ran me an extra $300 for a total of $2200 & a grand total of $10,200.

Keep in mind- these numbers probably sum up more repairs than mods. If you're having fun with your truck & you DON'T break something............you're doing it wrong. LOL

Bought the truck rolled over for $3500, then got a cab and chassis with bad motor and trans and swapped the junk cab for another $500. With all the mods Id say I have about $2000-3000 or so?

So im into my truck for about $7-7500. That doesn't include Maintenance (tires, Oil, Brakes, ETC)

That is so true... I dont want to think about it nor do I want my wife to think about it! And with 4 of them (psd's not wives!) to maintain, mods are few and far between; and on the cheap.
