Dude, I'm with you on that one. Everytime I look at the back of my Jeep, I always see that hideous tank called the muffler..but instead of Magnaflow; I was gonna get the Flowmaster 40 delta flow kit. the muffler itself is small and compact, best of all out of sight.

Probably about 2400 rpm (5.13),at 7mph and you'll be getting better mileage-

Thanks JIMBO, does anything have to be done with transfer case? Does it work better or worse in off road applications? Heard installed around $1,500 as im not very mechanically inclined. I'm saving for the 5.13's now.

You will feel like you have a NEW jeep and much better 4hi off-road-

If you have an aux cooler installed, you can stay in 4hi a lot longer than you do now !

It's a brave new world--

Getta Flowmaster 40 -cat-back, makes the sound "SWEEEET", with duals-





I don't know how much SIZE changes they may have made, but if not--the FM 40 fits right in front of the EVAP can !

Rustoleum black high heat paint. Or grill paint. Either way, just clean up that silver monstrosity, scrape it up with a wire brush, and hit it with the paint. POOF--it's black and you hardly notice it. Touch it up every few months if it flakes.

No cheap way to gain power. But you can remove everything u don't need. Seats, stereo, a/c, top, doors, etc...

But if it's a dd, that wouldn't work to well.

I have a ,12 2dr 6sp manual with the 3.6L, which is my daily driver.

Running stock 32s on 2.5" lift I average 18.5mpg.

Coming spring time (tax return) I thinking new bumpers, winch, 35" Dick cepek crushers, and new gears. Original thought was 4.10 gears, now thinking of 4.56 gears.

Thoughts?
