What do you wish you DIDN'T DO to your Ranger

Interested to see what everyone wishes they DIDN'T buy for there ranger.

No wrecks or trail damage.

Modded or bought things only.

My radar detector because someone stole it.

Probably my security alarm. If it sits to long, it drains the battery.

I love everything else I have bought so far.

I wish I never bought a K&N FIPK. I should have just bought a Volant intake instead.

I wish I bought a black billet grille from the beginning. Wish I would have got a DSG one like I wanted. I wish instead of getting the EDGE I got a xlt with a 4.0.

This thread gave me an idea for a thread!

You know, I don't think there are any mods that I regret... sure some didn't last as long as others but I've been pretty pleased with most everything on the truck since I purchased it.

Oh, I got one after all... ProComp ES9000 shocks... hated them. Replaced them with Rancho's then Bilsteins.

Wish I bought a Dodge Ram actually, but if I stuck with a Ranger I wish I would have gotten a 4.0 4x4. DEFINITELY not a 3.0L.


..Also not all that giggity about my $380 X-cal "tuner", not all that impressed.

I wish I wouldnt have bought the 3/4 because that would have been $600-$700 towards bagging parts.
