Magnaflow glasspack with stock tailpipe ftw!!!

Very happy with it, no drones when crusing. Also gained 5" of clearance over stock. When i went to cut it off i noticed the muffler was hotter than the cat, so it was time.

Your XJ looks so low from the side.

I will never buy rough country again in my life. My rear has sagged 1.5" lower on one side. Front coils and junk and shock stem is rusting. This is after 1 yr.

All aal sag. I agree with the shocks being junk but you can expect that from the start

I wouldn't agree with that. All leaf packs sag eventually. What's the difference between doing an AAL and going to the jy and building a new pack?

I don't think Rough Country is to blame for your leafs sagging. What was the condition of your pack you installed the AAL in? Are all the leafs good and intact?

See I don't understand this. I've always run their springs. My first XJ had their coils and an AAL for 7 years now and they haven't sagged a bit. I still see the Jeep around. My current XJ has the same stuff, and I have beat the absolute snot out of them with no negative results.
