Not too cheap but well worth it I think. Good quality mats, they fit great, say Jeep on em instead of rugged ridge or quadratec. They make me every time I get in the Jeep now.

I see lol. I'd recommend buying some lead. It doesn't move around as bad, lol. Oh and it's not quit as explosive as 300 gals of jet fuel. Just a thought. Lol.

Today I went out with some friends to Hungry Valley, Gorman Off Road Park for some nice fun.
After our run we played around in the training area and I decided to disconnect my front sway bar for some flex test and a few photos.
A few weeks ago when I disconnected it I was wondering how the disconnect pin had gotten bent, now I know.




Also had another new muffler installed, this one is larger and not quite as loud, problem is it's hitting the drive shaft at times.

Just finished mine today. About $55 from napa for a reman unit after you give them your old one. I didn't get an alignment and its fine.

I have a flowmaster 70 and the first time off road it was hitting the drive shaft. I took it back to the shop and he moved it over but for a week or so it would rattle against the lower control arm bolt. The bolt made a nice little divot in the muffler and it no longer rattles.

My original muffler was a Flowmaster 70 and I really liked it's low deep sound, but when I installed the long arms there wasn't enough room and it had to be replaced with a smaller muffler. The one that was just put in is a Magnaflow 18" long, body size 4"x9" should have gone with the 14". I can't fit a 10" wide one in there like what Flowmaster makes.

I was at the CORVA family fun run in Gorman today, there where many very nice rigs there and my ZJ got a lot of looks too.

I've got a 14" Magnaflow on my ZJ. I love that thing. It's loud when I get on it but quiet for the rest of the time. I don't get any drone at highway speeds either.
