Probably just muffler. Maybe muffler back.
I've got a flow master and more than one person has told me it sounds like a diesel. (2.5 L)

Which one did you get, and where did you get it from? I have been really interested in doing this. Does it make a difference that my Jeep is a 2.5L.

I have magnaflow on mine and it sounds great I would have put flowmaster on it but i heard one with the magnaflow and it liked it immediately. I love loud exhaust but this one is just right not too loud where I cant hold a conversation but loud enough that people think I did an engine swap lol.
Which magnaflow?

Stock On mine the pipe comes off the manifold then ducks under the tyranny then turns to go straight back to the muffler and the out the back. Right after that last turn is where I hacked it off with a saw zaw. I believe 2 1/4 is the diameter of the pipes. I flanged the pipe out to fit the new section of 2 1/2 pipe I bought (roughly 30 inches maybe). That pipe got welded to the FLOWMASTER 40 series then stops. The the fm is kinda tucked up in the skid plate so I didn't need yo worry about getting hung up on it. I left all the back end pipes off just to get them out of the way of the axle. Hope this helps

Typically they make different ines depending on the # of cylinders you have. wont sound the same as a straight 6 but it will sound a lot different

So some guy in our local forum was giving away his mirrors becuz the bolt broke. So I got one of them, drilled and tapped the remaining bolt and made a bracket to use the mirror when my doors are off. Personally I think it turned out great. All it needs is some paint and we are really to go.

mirror - free
aluminum bracket piece (it was just lying around) - free
bolts - $1.98
total cost to me = $2

cheap, easy, fun.. i havent built anything recently for the jeep so it felt good to do something again

Has anyone on here mounted a bottle opener on their jeep?
I know the door striker works great on a TJ but I do a lot of tailgating (Buffett shows etc)
and was thinking one might be cool.
I'd most likely put it on the inside of the tailgate because I usually have it open anyway with our chairs right there.
I'm not sure how good it would look on the outside anyway.

Well I guess it's not such a weird idea. Now y'all got me thinking about putting it on the outside. I guess it being seen is half the fun.

I don't know if it's been said already but a guy on another forum was saying key rings to go on the zippers on the rear windows that don't have a little string, works like a charm.

Haha yeah I have a old key chain that broke and I use the part that would be a key ring but isn't and it helps a ton! And so does rubbing a bar of soap on the zippers
