Lights look awesome. How much did that cost? Id like to do the same to mine
I got them off eBay they are h4 55w 6000k hid replacements with ballast and wire for like $45 shipped. They shipped direct from china but still only took 2 weeks to get here. Def worth the wait.

I broke it and its not something that comes with the kit. My guess is it may be tough to source a replacement
U mean the spring looking clamp? Id make sure to have one in there. Dealership should have it. Its supposed to be changed when u put in a new clutch kit, but i always re-used. No issues. Anyways, check the dealership.

Quieter than the one did with a big hole in it, still not real loud. Nice n throaty on startup and gurgles in reduced gear when I slow down. I rather like it, it was only $36 bucs and the only one in town I could find that was center to offset. The only other one was a duno max super turbo crap that woulda made it sound like a ricer. All the rest of my exhaust is 2.5 inch mandrel bent pipe

I noticed that my muffler suffered from my last offloading venture, so I had to ask for options!

Speaking of mufflers.....
Changing mine out is on the docket for this month. I'm so effing sick of the craptastic drone of my exhaust that I almost, almost want to gouge out my ears.

Anyone have something to recommend? I have a 3/4 (axle dump) system and will probably keep it that way for money reasons. I want something throaty and rumbly and v8-y at idle and low rpms, but shuts the hell up at cruising speed. Cake and eat it too perhaps? I just want something aggressive down low that I can easily talk over at speed.

Cheers

Well haven't updated for a while i Was in Idaho for a get away. Today I scored two 20L military style Jerry cans for $17 a piece brand new. Got them at princess auto. They had the wrong price on them. Also added a do it yourself cold air intake for $70 worth of parts (all you old timers will hate that lol). And got some new rubber BFG km2's. last but not least installed a new smittybilt security centre console!
