Best Modifications Under $50

So my last truck we had one of these threads going and you wouldn't believe how many amazing mods you can do for cheap. It probably cost me more money than anything else. I searched and didn't find anything here, so we'll give it a go.

Post anything awesome you've done to your truck for under $50. I'll start with a few:

Stubby Antenna: $25

Amazon Amazon


Plasti-dipped Side Emblems: $6 for a can of Plastidip




BuiltRight Driver side seat release: $33

http://www.builtrightind.com/product...r-seat-release




Console Organizer: $30
