Welcome!

Well some easy mods would be the air box, debadging, detrimming, painting calipers and drums and/or the interior.

Big stuff I'd suggest a cai, exhaust, suspension.

Just to start off! =)

those are all very low cost mods that i would suggest you do first. trust me they make a BIG difference even though its nothing major. next i would look into lowering springs like JELIZA said because our stock height is that of a dune buggie

Welcome! I wish my car was paid off! Just search around the site. That will help you a ton. Also the how-to section is full of helpful advise!

Not quite....I have a 63 Dune Buggy and that thing is high. I would say these sit like the Colorado though. LOL.

Also, I don't want to cause any trouble or make it sound like a great place, but CSS.net also has a lot of great how-to's. I don't really recommend the site in general (I do look at a few topics there on a regular basis, but the people there [SS owners 99% of the time] can be ****s), but you will find some there that might not be here.

(OBZ, if that last comment was out of place let me know...not trying to cause issues, just mentioning that I believe they have a lot of good how-to's...some of which may not be listed here)

you son of a...naw im jk but yeah both sites have their advantages and disadvantages. i personally like this site more because its more of a community instead of a pissing contest. and i like the other because the amount of members allows for more knoweldge to be shared. to each is his own.

He is right though some LSJ owners can be very cocky about the littlest things.
