Finally finished up my exhaust. Put my Light covers on.

Here is a quick video i made. I wanted to hear what my exhaust sounds like from the outside, and this is a little dirt road behind my neighborhood where its very quiet, so i could get the full effect. I know it looks a little poser-ish, but i really did it for the exhaust...The mud just happened to be there from 5 days of straight rain.

PS- Turn it up loud to get the full effect!

Installed my ICOM IC-V8000 vhf rig last night, just on the right side of the console. It will do till I get my Shelf-It. Tonight I did a temporary Cobra 19 CB install. Installed my new Firestik on the roofrack (not sure how the grounding plane is yet) and hung the Cobra facing forwards on the dome light housing. Not sure what I think yet. For the trail, it's great, for DD, not so much.... Pics tomarrow when I get some light...

Also seafoam'd. Still have "lifter tick" but noticed a large amount of the smoke was coming from the header, so makes me think that the tick is actually a "header" crack.

Went to half-price weekend at the junkyard and picked up some Explorer rear disc calipers and mounting plates. Gonna put these on the MJ 44 to match my XJ 44.

And just swapped out the battery cables for some Jeepers and Creepers ones that I had laying around the garage. Old cables were wasted. The MJ starts up a lot quicker now.
