Screwing around with my exhaust. Took me a few too many setups to get the right sound. The Flowmaster is ok but it's as good as it's going to get -Mike-

Only regret is I didn't pick the right wheels the 1st go around. Seems like it takes me several times before I get it right. Did the same thing with the Eclipse & F-150.

Only mod I regret is the exhaust tips I had to settle for and the direction I went with them. When I eventually redo my exhust I will have the tips coming out in front of the right rear tire and they will be stainless tips.

Nothing with the Ranger so far, but both the body and suspension lifts I put on my Nissan. It went to **** after that, haha, and I know most of you will say before that too.

I reckon I regret getting the aftermarket taillights I used to have. I had them on my truck for maybe 2 months at the most and put my stockers back on.

I do regret buying some stuff for my quad. but for my truck nothing yet. I have alot of plans for my truck. expensive plans.

IMO....you do not live forever, might as well have fun while you can.

For example....

I bought my stock quad, it was nice but I had huge plans. I dumped 10k into it. I kidna regreted it. But when I pull up to a race and ppl start asking me questions, saying how nice it is that is when it is worth it. Its nice to look at your truck/quad/bike whatever it is and go "that is my work, my money, my sweat, my truck!"

Two things....

1) Painting the armrests...they look really faded right now as opposed to the rest of my interior pieces which look great.

2) Buying a cheap front aftermarket chrome bumper off ebay. It hasn't been a year yet and the first winter in Rochester pretty much destroyed it. It looks OK at the moment but I just got the rust off a couple days ago for the 4th or 5th time...it'll be back.

I love all my other mods. Every mod was a learning experience.

So far, nothing. All the mods I've done so far have been great! Still have some I would like to do, kinda expensive though. Gotta wait til I can afford them.
