Get a vanity plate just for fun. If you love puns, you can show off your skill by picking a witty line to put on your plate. It’s an affordable, fun, clever way to add character to your vehicle.
Vanity plates are incredibly popular not just in the United States but in all of North America. For a fee, you can personalize your license plate and choose your own number, letter, and combinations to put on the plate.
This kind of modification is also legal in the country, so you don’t have to worry about being in trouble with the law. However, there certain exceptions that you need to take note of. For example, you’re not allowed to use the combinations FDNY, NYPD, and GOD on your vanity plate if you live in New York. To be safe, check with your state laws to see if they have similar limitations.
Fender flares are the perfect mods for big vehicles, like the Ford Ranger, Dodge Ram, and Toyota Tundra. They’re both practical and aesthetic.

In some places, fender flares are mandatory for big vehicles to maintain safety on the road.

You can customize the look of the covers and choose different shapes, sizes, and colors. Installing covers also adds tint to the light when you turn it on.
There are two different types to headlight covers to choose from: optically clear vinyl appliqués and snap-on plastic or polymer resin cover. They’re both temporary, so you can remove and replace them anytime.
If you’re applying the covers yourself, remember to clean the headlights first for proper installation and longer life span.
In most places, headlights are legal car modifications, but check with your state laws first to be sure. Some places have guidelines on the light intensity of car headlines, and a cover can diminish the strength of your headlights.
