also got 3.5-5" shocks for the rear. so no more shock spacers (accidentally shipped me the wrong ones first, got that fixed though) i tried to see if i could mount the resis in the wheel well, so they could be seen, since i dont want them attached to the shock, just incase of a random rock. but the cable wasnt long enough to reach it. so i just put them back on the rear cross member.

I have the Dynomax and it sounds real good. Instead of buying the kit I just bought the muffler on amazon and went to a local auto parts store for clamps and pipe adapters. Simple install.

waiting for FedEx to get here with my exhaust...

got my Dynomax Muffler in.




first i went and made my first cut on the stock exhaust pipe to attach to the inlet of the muffler. tested the sound of that, and decided i probably didnt want the exit to be right there. especially since new exhausts smell for a little, till they are broken in. so i then went ahead and measured and cut a 2nd cut on the stock piping and stuck it in the outlet of the muffler.



then put it all back in.





so far i give this muffler a 10/10. its the EXACT sound i want. i dont want loud ricer. and dont want it to be like stock..where you cant even tell the Jeep is on. next im gonna add a small tip to the end (to push the ending away from my bilstein reservoirs) and then will be putting on a small heat shield on the bend (since its about 3" away from my reservoirs). i am also gonna look into a skid plate for of some sort for it. i also bend the mounting tabs so it sits as high as possible. its just barely even with the lowest part of the Jeep's Frame.

RyanClimbs has a pic like this of his JK and ive been obsessed with it since i saw it. so i went and made my own version of it. but my jeep is not as cool as his.


bilstein Steering Stabilizer. Artec Front Axle Truss. Synergy Ball Joints.



on the lift ready to start the truss work.


in the process of welding.


now time for the synergy ball joints.


took 2 hours to do one side. then it was time to start the next side. did the upper joint in about 3 minutes. then started the lower, and this happened... never again am i buying a chinese made tool. POS.



eventually with enough hammering and drilling. it was getting messy. so ran and got a rental ball joint kit and returned my chinese POS kit.



also had time to do my gussets finally that have been sitting in my garage rusting for a year now.

This pic finally allowed me to convinve my buddy that a Jeep Wrangler is way cooler than the Ford Raptor. That Jeep makes the Ford Raptor look like a big waste of money. LOVE your Jeep

How did TfT's go? We went to the Chicago one four years ago, it was a lot of fun. We want to do it again but it's hard to schedule time up there in December for us, it's usually summer.

decided to do my synergy ball joints the night before. and half way done, and broke my ball joint press. so didnt make it to T4Ts. didnt want to take the raptor, since i was to be meeting a group of Jeepers.

Finally pulled of my PIAAs and Hellas. Swapping over to LEDs. Took my reverse light duallys and put them on windshield.
Getting SRMs for rear. and duallys for winch fairlead.


also just hit the 2 year mark of having the Widow.

and my buddy totalled his Jeep, Jeep 0. Snowplow 1. Full width steel bumper probably saved him from being seriously injured. His Jeep is in my garage now. and we're pulling it apart getting all of his stuff off it, so insurance can come and pick it up.



Ive also been looking into getting a diesel truck. as a daily driver/tow rig/plow truck.
most likely gonna go with a ford. 1999-2003. 7.3L only. 150-200k miles.
