Default Build Thread and Mod Ideas

I see that a lot of guys have build threads and figured I would make my own to get opinions on some future mods, and to show what I have now if anyone is interested in them all in 1. Sorry for having multiple threads, didn't think I would be as addicted to modding as I have become...
1)AFE Stage II CAI
2)24" Magnaflow SI/DO Muffler Swap
3)Aux B/U Lamps
4)Under Rail Bed Lights and Cigarette lighter adapter in Bed added
5)Magnaflow Y-pipe
6)Painted Hemi Hat/dipsticks/ lid covers to match
7)Removed Pillar Tape
8)Extang Trifecta Tonneau Cover
9)PIAA Headlight bulb Swaps and upgraded LED B/U, Cargo Lamp, brake etc.
10)AVS Window Deflectors
11)Plasti-dipped Center Bezel chrome cover
12)Shorty Antenna
13)AMI Locking Fuel Door
14)EZ-down tailgate Dampener

I love modding and making the truck my own. I can't believe I am actually at a point where I am not sure where to go from here without spending big bucks! I am definitely waiting for DS to break the code for the programmer to get the big 3. I have thought about debadging but kind of like the chrome emblem look. I am up for any suggestions or input!!! Thanks guys. Also if anyone would like pics or info on any of the mods that I have done, let me know!

yayyyyy!!! Another build thread! I love these...

OK, so you have a future mod list it seems, specifically a programmer. Good choice!

So, I'll throw out some suggestions:

1. Wheels (Bigger)
2. Tires (Bigger)
3. Suspension (Taller)
4. Have you tinted the windows? (Darker)
5. Audio upgrade (Louder)
6. LED tail lights (Visible)
7. HID's (Visible)
8. Bull bar or light bar and some front mounted aux lighting. (Visible)

Thanks Maddog!! Glad to see someone who watches these too. Thanks for the suggestions. I should have been a little more specific. I normally would have done the lifting options you were saying. However looks like I am going to be moving to NYC and I don't want it any higher fitting into a parking garage. Definitely am considering a audio upgrade as well but not sure where to start. I have the standard system and I was wondering if a speaker upgrade would help. Thanks about the light bar option. Definitely added to my wish list now!! Thanks for the suggestions!

Thanks man!!!

I mounted it off of the bed liner under the bed rail on a bracket that I made for the switch of my bed lights. No I didn't tap into the Cargo Light. I wanted it to always be hot so that I could simply drop the tailgate and flip the switch. I ran a positive fused and negative wire straight back from the battery to the bed. I used the same wiring for the Cig. lighter adapter. I will get pics if you are interested.
