my auto dim mirror, i love the mod, but in the process of it i broke the mirror clip off, and that took a piece of the windshield off with it, and the 2 small cracks are starting to expand, so now i have to get a new windshield.

painting the grille, cranking up the Tbars, cranking down the Tbars, buying steel wheels, cheap tires, removing the flares...

The only mods I don't regret are the street scene grille (unpainted) and the black headlights, really.

luckily i just started another job close to my house... i used to drive 50 mins one way to work... now i drive about 5 minutes. plus now i don't use my truck for work, i use one of a couple trucks the guy i work for has.

still though, i dont know if ill make it either. i'm really wanting a new F150.. seeing that their v8's get better gas mileage than my 4.0 is nice and convincing too, lol.

Explorer center console.

I did the 60/40 -40/40 seat mod over a year ago and just now got my hands on an Expo console that doesn't fit quite right.

I also regret the accident mod. I went to " a guy" to get it fixed cheap and cheap is what I got looks good from afar but will probably cost hundreds to fix right, and take thousands off trade in value.

I dont want the ranger anymore. It feels tainted and I have no desire to put any more money into making it right again. I want something brand new this time not someone elses half asses project that I turn into my half assed project.

I regret the Auburn Limited Slip.

I won't say it was a waste of money, but it's starting to get old and it's not rebuildable. On the plus side- it's got over 70K on it and it still drives both tires...most of the time.

But still. Limited slip is kind of a waste of time in my books. I should have put the Powertrax No-Slip in there like I originally planned. Oh well.
