Put on the Dynomax muffler yesterday, got the tailpipe today and put it on, at first did not realize the muffler was 2 1/4 ID, the tailpipe was 2 inch OD.
Called up the local muffler man, they said they would stretch it out for five bucks. Whent down there, 3 mi, they fixed it up and said, have a nice day. No charge.
Cut off the downturn on the tailpipe, got a piece of old but good pipe, drilled a hole in the side,taped It out 1/4 20 thread, put in a short bolt. Sanded her off squirted on some metallic silver, and there she be, sounds good out the back, and no droning inside the Jeep.

I was thinking, attaching it where to shift all I have to do is push down.

Be really hard. The detent is a rod that moves up and down inside the shifter shaft.

Depends on your mechanical skill level. Would highly recommend finding a totaled donor vehicle to take everything from.

Sounds like the most likely candidate to me, too. Mine started to take 2-3 seconds after I fitted the Neon injector upgrade. It runs well so 'm not too bothered.

This morning it started much faster than usual - only cranked for around a second before firing. I'll wait and see if this is a permanent thing or just a fluke. If it's permanent then maybe new plugs would help even more; I've got a set waiting to go in, but my wife managed to throw my gap tool in the trash by mistake along with the packaging it was shipped in

Preferably one that's fixed and declawed, or it will keep you up all night, and destroy your furniture. Lmfao

I frankensteined my 242 and spare 249...
The 242 came from a built xj...is there an upgrade kit for the 242 that might have been added to the one I have?
I thought the 249 was supposed to be beefier. Everything in my 242 looked new and beefy. The 242 chain is larger and heavier(see pic I know bigger doesnt = stronger) . All the seals were new too.

I second this. Go and get an older one. Those don't stand a chance in there. They are good rodent killing machines too. My wife is making me go get a really fat old guinea pig from the shelter today. I am not sure why she wants it so bad.
