When I bought mine those were the first 2 things to go. If you use the boards then get some flaps, if not then ditch them. Mine looks so much better without both, but that's just my opinion.

not yet i need to buy more lights but is deff worth it

I changed the fluid in the front diff and transfer case... The transmission and rear diff are going to have to wait for a later date.
