    Welcome to the Club!! X2 on posting some pics (it's kind of hard to tell with just your avatar). Also, please let us know what goals you have for your vehicle (lift, interior, performance, off road, etc.), as that will help us to provide you our best and most relevant opinions.

    Thanks!

    Ok...Here are a few ideas.

    Performance: CAI, Exhaust
    Accessories: Nerf or step bars, Tonneau, spray in bed-liner
    Interior: DIC (driver's information center)...I think you have the audio all taken care of already!

    With your budget of $600, I would do a muffler, intake, and programmer. Heres a good tip for you, consider getting these items on Craigslist, Amazon, or eBay.
