No. I haven't made any modifications, but it's pretty stout the way it is. My wife was even impressed at how well it did during our last snow/ice storm. We were some of the very few people out in it and the truck did better than I could have hoped. Of course the only businesses that were open was Waffle House and the grocery store. The next thing I'll do to it (when I can afford it) is beaf up the bumpers and add a winch.
