Hood spacer and some vents would be the cheapest and most effective for the cost imo.

I would consider e-fan down the road (I have to do this as well).

New Muffler

Just dropped in the DynoMax Super Turbo 17731.

This is a Wrangler part I found a mod on the forum thats cheaper with the same performance specs.

DynoMax 17731 $50
4 - (2 1/4in) clamps $12
2 - 2.25 ID/2.25 OD Adapters $7

Paid $70 for this bolt on and kept the stock tail pipe. I was quoted $400 with parts and labor before but since I knew they were full of BS. I decided to go this route.

Upgraded

Nice. Just stumbled across a better deal at 4WD.com

Ended up going with the 5 wheel package 33x12.5x15 complete with center caps and lugs for $1318.00

Quadratec was only offering 4 wheels and tires for $1250.00 at 31x10.5x15 with no lugs. Plus they were backordered for 3 weeks already. Wheel package from 4WD shipped yesterday!

For an extra $68 dollars I got a full sized spare and upgraded the tire size. Sweet! cant wait!

Rubbing

So i thought with 4.5 inches of lift plus the fenders trimmed I wouldnt have any rubbing issues. I have 3.5bs and when I turn hard either direction im rubbing on the inside lower part of the fender well. I took a BAH and pounded it up in the meantime.

Will I have to trim more past the first crease? If so does anyone have any write up on how they did theirs. I pretty much know how to approach it, but just wondering what other people did.

My steer bump stops are set pretty good and they dont rub on the control arms at all so i know that not the issue.

What do you guys think?
