Yeah WillMcD will sound pretty close. I think the only difference is my magnaflow hi-flow cat? I love the sound...some say it too loud some love it.

The last trail ride I went on I got a few nice compliments. The one I remember was "that thing sounds pissed"

With what you had done to it, I bet you could've gotten $5k. Jeeps are worth what the area dictates. Mine is a '97 with the 4.0, but in the condition I've got it in, I could probably sell it for $3000 private party. A dealership would ask $5-6k. So for your 5.9, I could see $5k easily for private party. No, it's not always logical, but people will pay what people will pay. This was a while ago back, wasn't it?

Yeah it was a while ago and it needed a little work. I didnt want to see it around my area. My only regret was not taking off the aftermarket parts as I didnt get anymore for the trade.

Ive got almost the same suspension on mine, and wheels (did you add spacers?) and tire size (just not mudders, OEM JK wheels and goodyears)...I wanted to ask you if adding the end links helped with the ride? I have my shocks on the softest setting and its still a bit rough, and it clanks and clunks alot...my jks adj track is extra clunky, you can grab it and shake it, and it clunks right there in your hands. I plan on changing all the steering bishings, and the trackbar bushings too. I also know my rear a-arm bushing is shot, and I am going to add a spacer to extend the life of the new one.

I have not actually put the end links and track bar on yet. I am good with my ride. I dont think its to rough. I did not add any wheel spacers if thats what your asking.

yeah I saw on your build list that you we4re going to add spacers, and I didn't know if you meant wheel spacers, or coil spacers.

I hope that me swapping out all the old bushings will help with the ride and noise...I'm open to suggestions or ideas as to what else it could be...I'm hoping its not LCA's or UCA's!

I was very happy with the trails and the performance of my whole set up.
do you have bumpstops other than the factory ones?

Just stock bump stops right now. Once I disconnect I am going to worry about bump stops.
