I mis-spoke. I meant T&J Performance. By far best price and style IMO imageuploadedbyag-free1372786414.637840.jpg

But a new starter in it, other than that, nothing really.

Needs a couple things by the end of august for inspection, but I already knew about them.

Pure beef, it's awesome. I need to tighten stuff up a bit more, but any bit of wobble I had is gone now with the new steering and tb.

So guys, flat flares or cut outs?

I need flares, windshield, and exhaust for inspection.

Also my rear diff seal (by the yoke) is leaking from my front axle, might be time for a HP30 swap.

I would normally say flat flares, for a TJ. But I think cut outs look pretty sweet on XJ's. Thats my vote.

I don't even own a jeep anymore

Not to big of a fan of the cut outs on XJ's, only ZJ's. I say flat flares. I want some but can't justify spending that on flares until my lift is done. They are some sturdy flares though. Good thing I don't have inspections here in Oklahoma or just about every other vehicle on the road would need fixes! Including mine!

On the exhaust I would say go Flow master. My super 44 sounds great with a stock cat and manifold. Its not to loud and not to quiet. Will be putting a high flow cat on it to make it sound better soon.

This was the route I was going to go, the only reason my glasspack is illegal is because I don't have a tailpipe, but it's way too loud for my liking anymore.

Only good looking flare is stock. Pretty much everything else looks like ****.

Alternatively: Flat or metal tube flares in the rear and fiberglass fenders up front.

Meaning I could sell the snorkel and swap to a cowl intake, giving me room for dual batteries.

Thoughts?
