Birthday Present Ideas

Yeh. I didn't know where else to post this. My birthday is coming up on the 2nd, and I still don't know what I want. Yeh, way to wait until the last minute. I'm going to be 17. I really want something for my truck. It's a 2002 Ford F150 Extended Cab. It's my baby. Hah. Anyway, do you guys have any ideas? I was thinking of getting a system put in it, but I've drifted away from rap and gone back to my roots. Country doesn't really hit the speakers. It's still a possibility, but I don't know. I was wondering what else you guys thought would be cool. As for a price limit, I don't know, probably under $200. Thanks.

Dean88 has a good reputation on FTE.Dean88 has a good reputation on FTE.
Country/Southern Rock goes hand in hand with a loud stereo. At football games, people always gather around to hear a little Skynard cranked up. I got a 500 watt (no sub, I cant stand subs) Sony system for about $250 bucks

Exhaust is always a great present, and cat back systems aren't too much.

K&N Intake

Leviling Kit

Grille Guard

That's about all I can think of.

What else do you want to do to your truck if your not going to go the stereo route?

I don't know. I was thinking about an exhaust system or maybe some window tint. I know tint won't cost that much, plus I could probably just buy it myself.

Yeah tint is cheap and something you can just buy yourself.

If you want exhaust,go that for your birthday.

Check out the following brand's sites: Flowmaster,Borla,MagnaFlow,Bassani are all well-known names.

Also hit up local exhaust shops and see what they offer.

What would be cheaper, an exhaust system or a speaker system? I'd ask for the more expensive one, as long as it's not too expensive, and then buy the cheaper one later with my own money.

They both can get really expensive depending on what kind of sound you want from the exhaust or system.Brands also make the prices change.

Which one could I get better quality from, for around $200? Oh, dude, buckeyesteeler7. Let me say this, your name kicks ***. I don't even think I need to give a reason why.

I'm leaning towards exhaust, actually I'm 99% sure that's what I want. So then how much would a good speaker system cost? I'm asking so I know how much to save up, I want both by the time school starts at the end of August. I know it may be tough to get all this done by then, but it's worth a shot.

Alright, I guess I'll provide a little update. Today's my birthday, and I ended up getting dual exhausts. It's incredible, man. It sounds like a beast. I love it. I also got some of the truck detailed, like some of the scratches taken out. I'm working on getting the system now. I think I have enough money to get a decent one. Hopefully I can get it before school starts.
