Want to do some cheap mods on my 2010 as I am in college and also have a 67 mustang I’m building so don’t have a lot of money I already ended upgrading the rear shocks and I’m a lot happier with them

Welcome! 2010 owner as well. What trim do you have? Manual or auto? Cheap and worth it mods/ upgrades are rear dif breather, replace the rear glass struts, add hood struts, delete the mud flaps, and one of my favorites was replacing the antenna with a Stubby Jr. No more antenna in my adventure pics!

Better than the factory one and I now get the digital artist/ song info! Honestly I usually listen to SiriusXM so haven't tested it a ton but when I have flipped it over it has been awesome

The first thing I did was put fresh air in all of my tires. No need to go to a tire shop. You can easily do it yourself if you have a pocket full of quarters. 🙃
Be careful. Doing mods can easily become an addition!

The reception in the stubby I have is pretty poor. In town it's ok, but as soon as I'm more remote, it drops off quick. Definitely notice it vs the oem. Just my experience.

I bought the AntennaX Off-Road 13 inch antenna. It is obviously a lot bigger than the Stubby but I am satisfied with it.
