Finally a pic without the westin bars. This is at my friends property.



and here's some stock flex pics as well.






I also installed the Flowmaster 40. Definitely a lot quieter then I was expecting, but still has a nice sound. Reminds me a lot of a stock mustang GT. I'm probably going to get a hi-flow cat or (i can't remember the word, but a pipe to replace the cat right before the muffler).

I'm probably going to get a hi-flow cat or (i can't remember the word, but a pipe to replace the cat). I know it's not safe/legal, but i'm leaving the first converter in, and only going to do that to the converter that's right before the muffler.
Just get a high flow cat and forget the test pipe. No sense getting your WJ impounded because you wanted it to sound cool.

pre-cats dont cut it these days. just throw on a hi-flow. mufflers cause more flow restriction than cats anyway.

Yeah, I'm wrong in that, I'll admit. I'll look into a hi-flow soon.

Lolz. Powersticks, true dual. Too bad even if I did that same setup, I don't have the HO 4.7 and it won't sound near as nice.
