So many things you can do to . First thing I did was black out my taillights. Easy and cheap. Then I pulled all the emblems off except the hemi badges. Cheap and easy except tailgate requires body work and paint. Then a magnaflow muffler. Then a level. Then a lift and tires. Lol. It kind of snowballs. Always something to do to them.

Well, you might narrow it down a bit for us.

What sort of mods are you considering?

Performance?

Suspension/Wheels/Tires?

Aesthetics?

Audio?

What year and model truck do you have?

Cai are supporting mods, they aren't going to do much by themselves but if you pair it with a tuns and a complete exhaust you will see gains
