Ok I see not too many people post things regarding their Terrains mods or future mods.
What are you guys planning to do?
Let me start...
I have tinted the front passanger windows of my 2013 Terrain Denali.
Changed the license plate bulbs to LEDs.
Planning to change the fogs next.
Might put bars on the bumpers .. not sure yet.

Now lets hear and see your ideas!!!!!

I will post my pics this week so u can see what I have done.:D

I have a '12 SLT2 and i have tinted the driver and passenger window also i have put a AEM intake in it also acouple other mods nothing to serious just help out with performance. Terrain is already a pretty bad azz SUV just wish the back seats folded down flat for more storage and that there were vents for AC or Heat in the back seat. Have thought about seeing if i can get heated back seats or mod something up but have not done so yet. Im in NY and the winters get cold. I also went and got weather tech floor mats for front, mid and back. Best thing money can buy.

Well I just updated to 5K LEDs for the Back up lights and the Lic. Plates. Must say it's an improvement!! I definitely recommend. Plus Haven't seen any other Terrain around me with it :p

I had built mine from parts. I went to various auto stores and priced the parts and then built one for cheaper than the kit. If you are thinking about this male sure you get the right air flow sensor or use the one you have. Since the intake is compact u don't need much I keep mine enclosed since I had the room and I live in NY figured it was better also going go upgrade the tail lights. Good luck. Auto zone will let u build there and test as long as u don't start the engine cause than its considered used parts but at least u can make sure it fits. At least the one I go to.

Another thing u might want to think about doing is oil catch can since the filter is a paper one it will help with sludge and u can make one lowed or home depot has all the parts just make sure no air is leaking out and if u do this make sure u check it and empty it regularly. U will have to research for parts and install. Cheaper than buying one.

Keeping it simple. Window Tints and LEDs do a lot for the style and functionality of a car. I don't feel comfortable doing anything else, nor do I feel the Terrain needs it.

My mods

I've had my black 2013 terrain for couple months now. I've changed out all interior lights to led except center console ( blew the fuse cuz my bulb was a weird shape so decided to leave it) changed reverse and license plate bulbs to led as we'll as hard wired my radar to the mirror power. when it gets warmer plan on changing low and fog lights to either 6000k or 8000k hid bulbs as well as replace high beams to match color better while still being halogen bulbs. Mo also plan to change out front marker turn bulbs to leds and same for the back will be a bit of a pain as you have to remove the whole light assemble on the lift gate to access the 2 bulbs on either side. Haven't quite figured out what performance mods can be done will probably just add k and n filter would like to do full cat back exhaust but don't think wife will ok that one lol. Also plan on adding rims haven't decided wether to go chrome or gunmetal or to match color of the car and go black with chrome accents will probably stay 17" but might go to 18"

I will be doing a oil catch can, made one at work out of stainless 304 scrap.

I am a tunner and have alreadt started dialing my terrain in. Working perfect!

Will be doing my own intake soon. Hopefully I will be anodizing wheels black and tinting windows.

I've had mine almost 2 months now. I HAD to paint the ugly calipers red within the 1st week I had it home. Looks much nicer. Also LED'd the license plate lights. I've been looking at the LED low beams or fogs. The heatsinks at the base of the bulbs concerns me. Can they get hot enough to melt something, or will they even fit. And whats light output vs. hid. I also have yet to pull front bumper cover off. Do I need the plastic wedge/tool kit pop the clips, or does the 1st one under the headlight pop out pretty easily once the side screws are removed. Do I need to remove it if looking for ballast mount location. Where is good location.

Changed all the interior lights to white leds. Wired in footwell light. Mine didn't come with them. Swaped out the backup lights and license plate with leds. Finally I installed a third brakelight pulser.
