Mods Since Carlisle

Was just reading a thread that both me and Dmondeac replied to that stated amounts we have spent on mods lately. Got me to thinking about how much I have spent on mods since Carlisle.

Things I have yet to pay for
$360 for RB1
$150 set of leather seats (rears are 60/40 that is why i am getting them)
$100 full size spare special rim
$125 replacement headlights
$??? tires

Paid for not installed
Free ES Bumper
Traded EVIC for fogs for bumper
Trade Trep door panels for 300M door panels (long story)
$2 for key light mod
$60 for battery
$200 for radiator
$30 heavy duty sway bar
$200+ HID lights


Man this modding this is getting to be expensive. I am glad that I do not really keep track of how much money I spend on this car or else I might want to spend the cash on a new one.

I think the only mods I've done since Carlisle are another 13,000 miles on the clock and some winterization...

That is okay I have grown to understand most of your posts. I understand what you mean about the lights and the bumper and if you are not a fan of the Ryda it is all good.

02R/T thanks for the love bro!

BusIV I do not know the exact mileage I have added since Carlisle but do not think it is close to what you have done.

Your "have to buy" list looks an awful lot like mine. Have you priced the R/T struts yet?? Damn!!!

If any of you guys are interested, we have a "garage" over on dichat. You can list all your mods and how much they cost, who installed them, etc. It keeps track of them all and has a list of who has the most mods and who has spent the most money. It's pretty cool.

You might want to do a little more research on them first. That was my plan too but there were a couple of guys who got ridiculously low mileage out of them, and I sure as hell don't feel like pullnig my car apart that much every 15k or so! For the struts and various other odds and ends that should probalby be repalced with them the cheapest I found was about $800. Buying OEM sucks!! Did you put the new springs on yet or are you waiting? Mine are going on with the struts in the spring. Which ones did you get?
