I've done all the mods myself with the exception of things that need a shop to do - spring replacement, alignment, tire/wheel mounting & balancing, exhaust shop to cut and weld pipes, etc. I took auto shop in high school oh so many years ago and have worked on my cars all my life. It depends on what needs to be done and if I have the tools and time to do it.
I've installed the Hurst shifter, SRT Front Chin Spoiler, cabin lighting, aftermarket stereo/nav system, backup camera, speaker replacement and re-wiring, Ram's Head de-badging, painted coolant tank, painted calipers, horns, splash guards, and a few others I can't think of right now.
I do 2 oil/filter changes then take it to the dealer for the 3rd. This gets a general inspection and records that they have seen the car.
I also rotate the tires when needed and do a complete detail on my wheels, clean the calipers, etc.
I'm having a problem with my heated seats right now, but I'm out of bumper-bumper warranty so I'm attempting a fix on that myself.
I have Lifetime Powertrain Warranty so absolutely zero mods are planned for the engine, etc.
I keep a logbook with all maintenance, mods, gas fillups, road trips, etc tracked by date and odometer mileage.
