    Default Aftermarket/Factory "must have" items [Expired Topic]

    Does anyone have a list of what they feel should be a "must-have" item for our trucks?

    My initial thoughts are:
    Synthetic Lubricants throughout (Oil,Trans,Diffs,etc..)
    Cargo Mats and heavy rubber floormats
    Cold Air Intake
    Exhaust with X or H pipe


    Fancier upgrades:
    MSD Ignition (Box,Cap,Rotor,Wires)
    Projector Headlamps
    Nice Stereo
    Overhead or Headrest DVD
    Chevy Accessories
    Chevy Parts

    Crash bar, roo bar, what the hell ever they are called.

    Winch on crash bar.

    Interior pull straps, to help you get in and out. Mine are in the wrong place and there is none on the drivers door.

    I second the cargo mat.

    Do dealer items like runningboards qualify? I think they're a must.
