It was requested here that there be a list of mods categorized by price group. I volunteer as tribute to spend the next 2 hours at work making such a table. Here we go...

Please mention all of the mods I forgot so we can make this a kickass thread.

You may be one of the few people who spend more time than I do perusing the forums... haha. Nice work.

I'd argue that "Titan Swap" should be under "EXTREME MODS". Mine cost me around $3400 including diff for just the front and took me about 16 hours to install :(
How do you like it now? R180 Tswap under serious and M205 under extreme.

And i'll take that as a compliment

adding 35s requires some modding if wanting to do it right, right?

worthy of the list?
Not very specific, but if we can fill in the table with brevity I'll add it in. I'll start

haha well i suggested it cause i'd like to know. was getting home from walking my dog and upon seeing River from a far it was the first time the thought very seriously crossed my mind. i cant shake the feeling that the 33s kinda look lost in the spacious rear wheel wells

it'll take some digging for me but if anybody who has the info bookmarked would like to contribute to the list. two well-informed gents that come to mind are @Surf and Snow who has repeatedly mentioned it's under serious consideration for him or @ChrisHaynesUSA because of his haynesmobile obviously having it

if not, ill add in once ive had a chance to peruse through the site


with that said:

I have a dollar value for my 35's but it is such a huge amount of variables and opinions.
like should you have gears?
what kind of suspension?
etc/.........
Exactly. I am looking for a nice concise list. I even used a word that I learned from you; brevity. :pukeright:

I would be very proud if noobs come here asking about mods and people direct them to this thread. No noobs are seriously considering 35's right off the bat. On second thought, we could put 35's under Extreme Mods. Go ahead and fill it out if you like.
