What are some of the cheapest things I can get for my truck? Like, below 225 bucks.

Billet grill, shackles, window tint. For $5-$10 you could candy or smoke your taillights.

Do you know what the legal tint percentage is in Louisiana?

Also, what are the shackles? I've heard of them, but never got a clear definition.

you already have shackles on your truck now. if you get 2" drop shackles, it causes the eye of the leaf spring to be mounted 2" above the current position, bending the leaf, therefore lowering the truck.

Alright, thanks for defining it for me.

Is there anything else I can get?

Gas door just popped into my head

So, here is the list so far:
-Billet Grille,
-Shackles,
-Tint,
-colormatched door handles,
-Clear corner lenses.
-Billet fuel door

Is there anymore? I need to put together a list for future modding.

don't get a billet fuel door or anything you can buy at pep boys. It just looks tacky

1. No eBay account
2. I do not trust eBay sellers
3. My mother wouldn't allow it anyways.
1 and 2 are easy. 3 not so much.

There's no reason not to trust sellers. You just have no know how to use ebay. That's the biggest mistake people make

My mother wouldn't allow any of that no matter how trusted the sellers are.

Besides, we are pinching pennies too. I have 225 bucks to work with and that is it until more money comes in.

Try this website for the grill. $27-$40 for a grill.
http://grille4you.com

As for the tint, if you want to go illegal, you might as well go with 5%. I am near Lafayette and really do not get messed with for my 5%. I have a paper from the dermatologist making mine legal though.
