Fear not, though! There are plenty of easy car mods out there that you can do yourself.
Don’t believe us? We’ll show you. Soon, you’ll be helping your friends modify their cars and trucks.

1. Replace Converters
It’s no secret that catalytic converters slow your engine down. But they have been a requirement for almost 40 years.
If you have an older car or one made with price in mind, consider getting a newer catalytic converter. They do the same work but cause less of a strain on your pedal.
Keep in mind that some catalytic converters are welded on.
2. A Power Lock
If you drive a car, you can go ahead and skip to the next one. But for you truck owners out there, this one is for you.
A pop and lock tailgate power lock will make sure that no one can steal your stuff. It will also protect whatever is sitting in your bed.
A simple button press will open the tailgate. So this easy car mod is also great for convenience sake.
Having good tires is important to a car. But making your car stand out with a new mod is easy with tires.
Buying big tires or ones not made for your car may require a bit of work on it. But it can be much easier if you’re looking for more horsepower than working on the engine.
Keep in mind tires are important for safety. These and driving lights can be a great mod, but they are also necessary. Here’s more info about driving lights and their mods.
4. A Car Decal
This one might count as cheating, but nothing is cooler than a new car or truck decal. While it might not count as a mod, it is definitely much easier than a mod you’d need to see a mechanic for.
A car decal can cost as little as $5, and they can last for years. With that in mind, make sure you like your car decal. It’s not a tattoo, but it can be difficult to take off.
If you’ve already completed all the mods on this list, this might seem too easy. But if you’re having trouble with the rest, this could be your last hope. Plus, it’s quite cheap!
