No tip, they simply removed the stock muffler and put the flowmaster in its place. When I first got the jeep it had a big tip sticking out the back, but I cut it off by the rear passenger tire, I simply didn't like the look.

Nice so are you doing any more mods to it or just keeping it as is?

Well right now the rear axle is ****ed, so I have to deal with it. After that there's no telling. I really enjoy it as a daily driver. The 5.2's have the power and mobility that seem more like driving a car than SUV. I've thought seriously about lowering mine, but I really like it as is with 265-70-15's.

Haha that sounds pretty cool! I actually found a ZJ at the junk yard same color with all the parts I needed. Hood, fender, grille, header panel, core support, 1 tail light and 1 turn signal assembly all for $150 after tax. It was a pretty good day, especially since I don't have to paint it and those pieces don't have clear coat issues. My ZJ looks new again!

Not really. I might do the WJ intake manifold and neon injector swap, maybe an exhaust, but that's about it. 2wd ZJ's aren't worth very much up here. If I ever sold it I'd be lucky to get $1500 for it with the higher miles that it has so I'm not gonna put much more into it. Just keeping it clean and drive it haha

I might do that lol :-p. btw, unrelated but I just read your post on someone's thread about radio antenna removal. Thanks for posting up the FSM pages Polka. My radio mysteriously stopped powering on after replacing my passenger fender. I think it has something to do with the antenna so I get to trace that today...thanks again though!

Mines 2wd, It serves my purposes well. So much so I rebuilt both axles and the complete suspension. I don't think I would have if it had been 4wd, simply because that was tiring enough. Don't get me wrong, the trail guys have a use and its fun.

So what do you with your 2wd zj for fun? And do you have any mods done to it?
