    yea the non waterproof thing doesnt bother me, its water proof enough. If I have luggage or anything wont really get wet, especially if its close to the front.

    Its just all the damage that came with it and lack of fitting properly that dissapointed me.

    Same here, waterproofing isn’t the deal breaker for me. Price and keeping people out is :rofl:

    I mean if we had all the money in the world and can dream up any vehicle we want... but we can't. So really, unless you're a couple beers in and just musing, well... no ragrets

    The only mods I regret are the ones I went cheap on first because I had to re buy the good one after.

    4runners stopped being cool in 1989... sorry not sorry. Here is my old 4runner. I looked at a 5th gen and it looked like someone smoking crack designed the interior, I went with the tacoma solely due to this....

    I get more use out of the longer bed than I do out of the back seat. Only gets used 3-4 times a year if the grandkids visit. And they'll just have to live with it :rimshot:

    I regret buying a S&W M&P Shield 9mmfirst gen. Trigger is like sandpaper, no consistent break, train spring for recoil, too damn small, and it's ugly.

    Haha, yeah, I thought I'd be doing trail rides and easy stuff, not getting into rock crawling, and need bigger tires to air down more for that.

    I regretted ordering my levelling kit and booking the install, so I called and cancelled.

    Felt amazing. I have modded the shit outta my vehicles for 20+ years. Such a waste of money, an addiction in itself LOL.

    I regret going brand new, convinced myself going new was the right thing to do at this point in my life. Wish I went another decent used 2nd Gen even though they are selling at crazy high prices here.

    Only mod I’ve regretted was installing the Retrofit HID headlights. Not that it was a bad product, I just couldn’t get them to not blind oncoming traffic after putting the Icon lift on. Took them out and installed the GE +130 Halogens and have been pleased ever since.

    I regret the E Rated tires I got instead of going back with C Rated.
    I only have 5k miles on them- Bfg K02’s 275/65/18 (32”).
    Anyone want to trade their C Rated 18” A/T tires for mine?
