If you could have a new product designed for your rig what would it be?

Hey all, Im looking for a senior design project for school. Im a senior in mechanical engineering at Western. Trying to come up with a solid idea for a senior design project so i thought id ask here. If you could have anything on your rig redesigned, or a new product made what would it be. It could literally be anything, engine, suspension, body stuff. Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

I did a doubler kit for the truck I'm parting out.

Half track with the design of a penor on the rubber so it leaves a pecker trail in the sand.

then make the tracks out of used condoms, 365 per tire so you can say you had 4 good years of college.

A tire with rubber tread and a spring steel wire crisscross interior section that expands the tire on acceleration to a fixed point, on braking it collapses which would put more tread in contact with the ground..... I had strange dreams last night.

Here are some stupid ideas that may be fun to design

a 6x6 truck where two wheels ascend and descend when not needed or needed

a flame thrower in front of the car that melts ice and snow as you drive

a penis shaped attachment at the front of the car that sprays de-icer

A truck bed that has a cover on it. It has a giant handle coming out the side of the bed like a jack in the box handle that you can turn. This handle is bright green in order to entice people to turn the handle. When people turn it, it makes music and at the end the truck cover opens and dildo's shoot everywhere.

A giant condom like cover that automatically covers your car so when you come out to the parking lot your car is not covered in snow.

Not a new idea per-say, but what about a tailgate for trucks that has built in atv ramps? Like a pull out bed, you open the tailgate as normal but there is ramps that can fold out to drive an atv into the bed of the truck. when done they fold back in and you close the tailgate like normal. no fuss, no messing with storing the ramps.

Edit: get really fancy, have a pump mounted to the frame rails that makes the tailgate and ramps hydraulically powered

The new ford is offering that as an option.

I'd like to see more lift options for the ranger. Everyone does BL on the newer torsion trucks. Only company that offers a supension lift is superlift.

A car that won't start until the driver passes an intelligence test.
