Don't worry you guys sold me on the super 44. Unfortunatly I don't think I can afford to drop the $300+ dollars on an entire exhaust system. I have the cash but it's just a little much than I'm interested in spending. But anyway upcoming upgrades include new tires on Tuesday. Along with some new headlights, HIDs? Oh and the PA system speaker isn't all that big, it's only a 25w.

oh please, its way less expensive compared to a company's exhaust like a magnaflow or borla cat back system, and you dont even get the cat and those are all 2.5" systems instead of 3". But like John says, and i'll see for the second time...its way worth it. Andrew, HID's are awesome. Had them in the ZJ and have them in the dub. The ZJ's housings scattered the light way more, and had some problems with people flashing their high beams at me....but i never got around to aiming them down. That what the first thing I did when I put them in the WJ. If you want the most lumin (light) output, go 4300K. Thats the truest brightest white. I've got the 6000K in the WJ, and its almost as bright but not quite. Though being a little more blue people seem to know they are HID's and dont bother about them....but in the ZJ they seemed like super bright high beams. I'd recommend you at least plan to get some clean housings

its actually the smaller one that was available at radio shack, it's a 4x6" 50 watt power horn.
but it is awesome and puts out a surprising amount of noise, don't get me wrong.

aeagle, let them see the new tires too man!
