Red Belly I made my own version of "Drop Stop" with some left over pipe insulation. I think I saw someone in the forum under " cheap mods" did this...

I like it. I made mine into a stubby. I did some custom plastic welding. You have a nice looking jeep.

- 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 jack stand base
- grade 8 bolt upgrade
- Synergy Steering Stabilizer Relocation Kit

From Sorat Wheels, 5 of each:

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?

ivantate Fitted a premium top to my unlimited Sahara.

55f outside and didnt really have any problems. Took a bit of thinking but far less trouble than I had been led to believe.


Hope to take it off today.....

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.
