Em52 Well, still waiting for my lift and stuff to be shipped, nearly 4 weeks now! 3 weeks and waiting for the wheels/tires...

Painted the muffler with high temp BBQ paint, installed Rugged Ridge grill mesh, VDP front bumper ends (until budget resets for a new bumper, lol), front Grabars. Received the Husky molded mud guards, but will wait till I'm installing the lift, tires off before installing, don't want them to be in the way... Got a Superchip flashPac.

Got "on the way" from eBay:
- door sill Mopar guards
- Mopar gas cap cover
- Rugged Ridge rear floor mats
- plug buttons to replace the hood pucks

From Northridge:
- AEV 2.5 XT Dual Sport
- AEV Geometry steering correction kit
- AEV rear tire carrier
- AEV 3rd brake light kit
- AEV jack stand base
- grade 8 bolt upgrade
- Synergy Steering Stabilizer Relocation Kit

From Sorat Wheels, 5 of each:
- DuraTracs 315/70R17
- Fuel Wheels Anza D557 17x8.5 +6ET (5" backspacing)
- TPMS units

Budget blown for the year!

slsbl77 Took her to Moab so she could visit with the Jeep Concept vehicles. She was polite and did not mention any of their shortcomings, so I rewarded her with a PullPal.

I'm really interested in these. Do they get hung up on anything when they are folded up and down?

What kind of 3m tape ?

cajunhillbilly Got my exhaust on my 08 last week. I wanted to drive in a while to see if I liked it before posting, and I'm pleased. Its a nice quiet low rumble not a ricer sound. It does sound like a V6, although it should, it is one. There is no way to get a v8 sounds unless you put one under the hood, but it comes close.



I bought a thrush turbo from Advanced Auto 35 bucks, two 90's, clamps, brackets and a resonated chrome tip. Leaving the muffler open with no tail pipe was a little loud, but an option if I want it louder. With the tailpipe and resonated tip it sounds perfect to me.


I read a lot about this before I made up my mind on the type of muffler and attempting it. It took about an hour and a half. Much easier for me than some have had with problems getting the old one off.


Total cost less than 60$. No real noticeable performance difference, the engine doesn't shake as much when starting it, idle is smoother, sounds better, little bit kinda like after you just wash your Jeep and take it for a ride, it just feels better.


I tried making a sound/video of it with my phone, it didn't come out too well.
The superchips flashpaq I ordered is here, its next.

Bed line the grill. I have zero tech skill. I took the thing off (6 plastic rivets) cleaned the heck out of it. Sprayed it with some self etching primer then rattle can bed liner. Also plasti dipped the turn signals but you said one a day.

Sofla Sahara JK Installed my warranty replacement Trektop NX. The stitching was coming apart on my first one after having it for about 9 months. Big thank you to the people at MORRIS 4x4. They gave me a new one on the spot after seeing the problems with mine. I took the new one home, installed it and will return the old one tomorrow.

I basically did the same thing when I got home today. I replaced my antenna cable since I had it run under the passenger seat and it managed to rub through the insulation.

My 2' Firestick II (since the Jeep can't fit in the garage with the 4' installed) came in today, too. So it was installed at the same time. I'm thinking I need to get an antenna spring so the end of the antenna is above the top. Next is figuring out if my CB is still good or if it fried because of the cable issues.

I'm going to replace the CB anyway with a Uniden Bearcat 880, but not before a road trip next weekend.
