Arrow What are some Cheap Mods Every X Must Have?

Just curious and I am sure others are interested as well but what are your cheap mods that you recommend for every X??? Most everyone is on a budget so what are the small things that most ppl don't think about? or even some not so small but neat stuff?

PICS will Help

I think my thread covers what you are looking for...

EDIT: after rereading the question, yours is a little different... still a good link for other X noobs like me though.

I saw a Maglite mount that was mounted on the passenger side A pillar. That looked pretty sweet.

A lot of people do a Lobo Rack which doesn't set the wallet back to much

Another option is making a cargo carrier box for the back (RattFink and Davcos both have great write ups on here with this one)

Depending on the price of roof lights, those can be relatively cheap with a home made or B&M Lightbar

Sorry I should have been more specific I wasn't talking about the standard "take all the junk off" since I removed all the crap when I bought it. I was wondering if people would share little personal touches that they have added like shifter knobs, bottle holders/openers, and so on.

When I get around to it, im going to mount my flashlight on the passenger side A pillar. I think its the best out of the way place to mount it while still being in reach of the driver's seat.
