:eek:ops1:

As I was reading through the "Stuck" pictures thread in OffRoad, I realized I was learning quite a bit about things I'd never really considered. Basically, things I didn't know I didn't know. It was probably one of the most informative and entertaining threads I've encountered here.

It also got me thinking about things people have done to or with their trucks that they regret or would definitely do differently if they had the chance. Or that were simply wrong and should not be repeated. Originally, I was thinking of mods and cosmetic stuff that would be helpful for new owners, but I think it could apply to almost anything.

So if you have any thoughts or experiences you're willing to put up, please do. Off course, pictures are great too. No pointing and laughing at others though.

:nana:

*Technically, I haven't taken delivery of my Frontier yet so I can't start things off - other to say I should have bought one years ago.

Well little cosmetic things...basically you will accidentally make scratches and nicks when taking stuff apart and putting it back together... basically need to be very careful and work clutter free and slowly.

Also, messing with original design has negative consequences that you never realize until you already changed. For example, get rugged tires = less MPG and rougher ride; get lift and different suspension/wheels = rougher ride, noises, blah blah.

It's kinda hard being all the way over here in Hawaii. If I was on the mainland I would def buy Andrew's V6 he pulled out of his.

Basically my whole build thread... :)
funny. i read it last night. bookmarked it too. and it partially inspired this topic. not because i thought anything bad, but because so much of it was unexpected. :shock:

it left me thinking...i need to experiment more. nothing is permanent. :)
