oh, and my stock muffler had a ton of rust holes on top of it..that explains the exhaust leak hahah
I just did the EXACT same except I have a 5.2. Stock muffler was seized on there like crazy, thank god for airhammers

I like it now though (cherrybomb turbo from autozone, $25), my buddy has a 5.2 with a gutted cat and a thrush and its too loud and drones once upto speed. This is almost as loud, sounds good, and doesnt drone at all.

Spent the last 2 days trying to figure out why my power lock switch wouldn't work on my driver side. Today i tore into the rubber boot that feeds the wires from my door to the body to find corrosion and broken wires.. got it all fixed and my locks are finally fully functional

My driver's door actuator doesn't work. Maybe I have the same problem.
The good news is that it makes it harder to lock my keys inside!

Added lights to the front of my cargo basket today. When trying to figure out a mounting system, the solution became all too clear. Pics tomorrow.

Cool. My stock muffler has, like, three holes in it now. The sad thing is that it now has a really nice tone! I may think about replacing it with the Cherry Turbo, since I hate drone.

AIR--gonna be around anytime soon? I'd like to hear what yours sounds like.

Yeah I've seen black eyelids with a different body color, it looks good, especially if you have black wheels.
But you can also get check if Duplicolor makes your exact paint code and paint them gray to match, thats what i would do. Either way it helps get rid of that old school boxy look.

Light pictures





Used the mounts for the wind fairing:



Lights are Pilot Navigators (Hella 500 knockoffs). I just put them on last night and am going to reroute the wiring, since I don't care for it going over the top of the fairing.
