    Getting a small starter list to start upgrading my truck.
    Some of these arent upgrades but more of a replacement item.

    These Goodyear Gatorback Poly-V serpentine belts run quieter, stretch less, and transfer more power than other belts. As they warm up, the composite construction between the cords and rubber compound becomes more efficient at turning your engine's accessories. And by absorbing the shock and vibration transmitted from the crank pulley, the belts can help your harmonic damper to better reduce harmful vibrations.

    Reduce engine temperature and detonation with a Hypertech thermostat.
    Hypertech thermostats are low-temperature thermostats that reduce the temperature of the incoming air/fuel mixture and combustion chamber. This results in lower engine temperatures, less detonation, and increased power and performance. Hypertech thermostats are available in your choice of 160 and 180-degree ratings. So, if you want to reduce your temperature, then you need to get one of these Hypertech thermostats.

    K&N's air filter that outflows stock, and adds up to 15 hp.
    These reusable K&N Filtercharger air filters outflow any other air filter--up to 900 cfm--for power gains of up to 15 hp. They use a surgical cotton fabric soaked in oil as their tack barrier. Sandwiched between an aluminum screen wire, the holes in the cotton catch tumbling air and straighten it out. Since air moving in a straight line flows faster, these K&N air filters actually improve airflow. They can be covered by up to 1/4 in. of debris before air restriction makes cleaning necessary. These K&N air filters come pre-oiled, and many are available as a direct fit for your application. So, if you want better performance from your air filter, then you need to have one of these K&N air filters in your ride.

    Better lighting for safer nighttime driving with PIAA light bulbs.
    These PIAA Xtreme White Plus light bulbs provide a brilliant cool white light that will light up road hazards and street signs long before a normal halogen bulb. They are manufactured to SAE-recommended specifications. PIAA Xtreme White Plus light bulbs operate at 4,000 degrees Kelvin, which is much higher than conventional halogen-style bulbs. Get rid of those factory light bulbs in your vehicle--upgrade to PIAA Xtreme White Plus light bulbs, and experience the difference.
