Nah, I had a muffler shop do it. I dont have a welder, and even if i did, i probably wouldnt have done as nice of a job as they did.

It sounds awesome! Has a nice growl to it, but its nothing overpowering or annoying. Kolak sends out a great product and even gives a discount for JF members. Id definitely send him a PM if you are looking to do an exhaust mod.

Rock sliders installed. They really kicked my butt.

I snagged them for $75 on ebay, only because they were discontinued and on clearance

I think it sounds good. It has a nice tone to it, especially when you really get into the throttle, but its nothing that will drive you crazy on the highway


Thanks for the comments guys
