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

Thoughts?
I think that is well thought out, and unique idea... and you know I'm an expert on unique

Decided on flat flares.

Month of August will have the following mods:
Flat flares
Windshield
Flowmaster Super 44 + Tailpipe

Looking into trying to find D44 housings F/R (preferably TJ/XJ ones) or going HP30/D44, but I haven't found **** on craigslist besides overpriced broken to **** axle housings.

As I was searching around looking at different colors of bedliner on XJ's I saw yours and thought that it looked absolutely beautiful. Then I got to looking at the pictures and it might be just me that noticed it, but there is a damn bee in the middle of the second picture. (Well second on mobile)
