Modifications you regret

New to the forum 2018 owner.

Before I jump in on the mod wagon (been there with many other cars and trucks)......

What have you done to your truck that you regretted? And why do you regret it?

So far for me;
Baby seats in the rear.....
Why? Dimpling the leather.

But in all seriousness, what jave you done that you regretted or dont think it was worth the money or time.

I want to say that there is already a thread on this.

But anyway.... for me I regret buying the 2 inch Toytec spacer lift. Not because the ride was that bad, but because fine tuning of ride height and lean correction was only realized once I went with a coil over set up.

Swapping out my cloth upholstery for leather when adding heated seats. Still can't get all the wrinkles out of the leather even after using an upholstery steam wand. Ready to pull the leather and put the factory cloth back on. What a PITA.

I had toytec's 3" spacer on my tacoma then soon swapped it out for 5100's and set it at the highest setting. Rides rough.

I've always wanted King's since the MDR event days so even before I got a 5th gen, I ordered Kings! Haven't installed them yet but can't wait!

The roof top tent. Although that's off now so not a big deal. The other one is going with Icons over Kings/Fox.

Kind of second guessing the whole 4runner purchase. Thinking I should have built not bought.

You are going to love them.
Just don't go crazy with the preload.

You should really read this, particularly the section titled "reduce preload"

Coilover Spring Rates for Toyota Tacoma & 4Runner | AccuTune Off-Road

The misinformation on this forum is astounding. Adding more preload to coilovers just changes the ride height. It doesn't make the ride harsh unless you lift too high and run out of down travel to soak up dips, or the spring hits solid length before the shock bottoms out on bumps, neither of which will happen on a 4Runner, even with a plate bumper.
