Tradesman owners group----what have you done

I tried a search, did not find a thread directing me towards my specific inquiry.

If you have a tradesman, what modifications have you done to "upgrade" your tradesman to get options upper models have. Im not talking about things like 4.56 gears, or deletes or such, but things like upgrading the 3.4 and to what, factory or aftermarket, or installing overhead....yadda yadda. How did you do it, parts from where? How much?

great thread

Awesome idea for a thread. I haven't done any slt/Laramie upgrades, but have a question!

Anyone put the switchable rear dome light in a tradesman? My kids always want the lights on when we are night driving and I hate having the map lights on too. It would be great if that is an easy swap from an SLT.

I know several folks have upgraded to the fancy instrument cluster. I may get around to that one of these days.

Expedition Portal has a thread on a guy with a 2015 Tradesman.
It's a white gclb. You might register,introduce yourself and search. He's done a Carli suspension,tires etc.
It's a fine site.

Mind sharing pictures? Part numbers or maybe your thread for that upgrade? I'm very interested.

These are the only interior light sources I got. Want to make sure I'm on the same page.
