Re: Add "Trail Rated" Badge to GC Limited?

I like the badge but must agree, if a Dodge Caliber (Patriot) can be trail rated, they may as well start putting them on Civics.

But no one has been able to show any difference in wiring or door gaskets of a badged "Trail Rated" vs a non badged WK2. They all use the same door weatherstripping and wiring V6 or V8 harnesses.

Is there something that we can do ourselves to make it more waterproof?
