I'm going to be doing a few little things to the old girl and got wondering what people thought the best mods for under a hundred bucks are. Anyone have any other ideas?
I'm thinking:

2 -Trailer Wiring relocation
3 - Pathfinder switch plates
4 - Xterra Offroad Lights switch
5 - a second tow hook
6 - Nissan Rogue Key
7 - AEM Drop in Air Filter
8 - a cheap chinesse light bar
9 - upgraded headlights
10 - LED Back up lights

2014 Frontier CC SV Long Box, OME HD, PRG Deaver AAL, ARB Bullbar, M8000 Winch, 20" Rigid Industries E-series light bar, 50" Curved LED roof Light bar, Vision-X Light Canons, 285/75R16 Nitto Trail Grapplers, bed rack with Yakima Load warrior basket, Northwest Com. seat covers, Kurgo pet barrier, P3 brake controller, Weather tech floor mats, Trailer brake wiring relocation, Rear axle vent relocated, Blue sea fuse blocks.

Installed an actuator to operate the tailgate lock and ran wires (through a relay) to the body control module under the drivers side dash. I will be posting a thread with details and pictures in the next few days... (Soon as I'm done with the honey-do list

Will be attaching all my technical mods to a build thread as well...

Squall_Line_ -You can re-program a Nissan Rogue key to work with the Frontier key. The Nissan Rogue key has all the unlock, lock and panic buttons built into the key, instead of needing the separate fob. You just need the Transponder from one of your Frontiers keys to make it work. I just attached a Pic of the instructions i have to do it all.

geekmyride- that would be great! I'll look forward to having a read! That sounds pretty trick, i like it!

I also did this. It's one of the most convenient mods out there. It took me about 40 bucks in parts and an hour of time.
