Okay, I got some money for Xmas and im trying to decide on what to get with it. There are two options I gave myself that will be worth while for now and the future.

First is the Pioneer AVH-P3100DVD Head unit. My old ass single din Sony headunit is on its last year overall. The amp no longer puts out 52wattsX4 speakers, the CD player skips pretty easily over hard bumps, and the radio cuts in and out completly. This headunit from Pioneer is normally $500 but i can possibly get it for $250 on ebay... here is the page for it... it is truely an amazing headunit!!! http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Products/CarAudioVideo/In-Dash/DVD-Receivers/AVH-P3100DVD

Second is the Underdog Performance 4 piece underdrive pulley combo for my 3.0. This one is a solid $200 and the benifits i see coming from this is incresed hp and torque instantly, the engine will not work nearly as much unless i have fun with it, and the fuel economy will go up to where i can get more than 21 mpg on nothing but highway. Here is the site for the U/D pullies: http://www.stuffforyourranger.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=4_30_36&products_id=163&zenid=f8ddf1ecda5d73e00823d5e3a834e21a

So what do you guys think? Give me the pros and cons you guys see in these options and let me know what you think i should do. Thanks!

Hmm, very tough, its a question most battle when working on there truck you want it to look awesome, but be backed up by a kikass engine. I would go with the pulley though, i mean, nothing like being able to feel the power, and if your headunit will last a year, you could just save up until then. But who knows if youll be able to get the same deal!Gah! you are in a delima!

I personally dont care for the flip out screens. I just dont care for a double din slot being taken up by a tiny single din stereo.

radio..those pulleys arent gonna get you much gain..its just "free'ing" up some power, not really gaining you any..and it will be minimal...maybe like 10hp at the crank!...which you wont really be able to feel
