The LEDs make a huge difference. In not sure why they don't come with them from the factory.

Also LED bulbs in my CS fog lights. $29 off amazon too. Got rid of that yellow tint and they are bright enough to drive with.

Ford Racing oil/air separator for Coyote. It looks smokin' and keeps your Coyote from smokin' ! Who wants oil vapor sucked back into the intake-yikes!

Favorite mod(s) for under $150

Roush double adjustable Drag Pak lower control arms. Discontinued. $180.00 though. Not adjustable is around $300.00.
Also thanks to Nate, shorty antenna. Bought one for my first 3V, and really liked it. Bought my second 3V and couldn't stand that big antenna.


Pick your poison.

I must be rare, because I like having a good prop / stand. The massive hood on my Ram has dropped on my head enough times for me to realize that hydrolic cylinders are no match for a gust of wind.

I wasn't sure how it would work out, so I bought a $3 antenna from a junk yard, cut it with a small bolt cutters, dressed it up with a can of gloss black, and put a vacuum plug on the end. Works great for me. Most stations I listen to, come in great everywhere I go.

Bought my 14 GT in April & decided to do all appearance mods 1st. So far Black Billitt Grille Overlays (I cut all the Honey Comb out of the original grille before installing) = $139.00
Front Lip =$139, Hood Scoop=$65, Rocker Extensions=$89, 1/4 Window Louvers=$100,
Rear Window Louvers=$125, GT500 Rear Diffuser=$149, GT500 Spoiler=$85, Rocker Stripes=$40 & at least $250 in paint, primer, etc. as all the parts I bought came unpainted.
I have a busy weekend ahead of me as I just bought the Diffuser, Spoiler & Rear Window Louvers & still have to paint & install it all. Appearance mods almost done...Then wheels & Slotted & Drilled Rotors before exhaust (Magnaflow True X-Pipe w/ Roush Axelbacks is my choice), Then the suspension before Bolt on performance parts & a Tune. Probably another year before it's all complete & start saving for a Whipple.

I'm sorry, I was thinking a Mod as something that adds horsepower . Things I like that I have done that cost less than $150. Hood struts, the engine insulator (performance pack engine piece), GT500 rear lower control arms, JLT catch can and a $30 running pony I put on the passenger side dash panel
