Default My new 3.7

Hey guys! just recently got my 3.7 manual. looking for some ugrades as its completely stock other than the wheels.. trying to stay as cheap as possible.. looking for maybe some extra grumble in the exaust and a cheap velcro roll up tonnaue cover. maybe some nerf bars of some sort.. CAI and maybe something else to help with some power.. ive been reading for days on seperate threads in here but wanted to see something posted all in one thread. thanks for opinions or if you have anything willing to let go cheap let me know!

Give it a little more pep in its step. As for how much, I have no idea. Might be worth some research though. You said you wanted some help with power, that will do it, especially in conjunction with other bolt-ons.

nice truck man, like the wheels. i'd start with maybe a cold air intake or hi flow air filter. as funds allow, make changes to exhaust,tuner etc. you have a very good truck to start with. it can only get better. good luck on your build.
