Nice stuff! I just bought my 04 WJ last night! $4400 before tax, ad valorem, and commission, $5250 drove off the lot... 85k mileage. It is only 2WD which I'm find with; I plan on building a off trail rig in the future, no time for it now...but it'll be my new daily driver! I'm going to follow your build just to see how things go and get ideas! Mine looks simliar! Keep up the good work!

If you don't mind posting your wisdom on how the quadra-drive works I would love to read it. Unless its already somewhere else, I've likely read it.

I've got quadra-drive with varilock axles in mine and I love them hell out of them. I enjoy their quasi-locker-ness(TM)

Thank you, sounds like a great buy. I'm very happy with the WJ so far but really look forward to get the lift on it.

Maybe some of the other guys can chime in on this because I have no wisdom when it comes to the Quadra Drive system. I'm yet to take the Jeep truly off road. I hear good things but with thoughts of a locked Dana 60 in the rear I'm sure at some point I'll be switching it out.

It's definitely noticeable but I need to do a video yet. To be honest I love how it sounds at an idle but you can hear it all the time. When I had Magnaflows on my F-150 they idled nice and then only were noticeable when you got on the throttle so it wasn't a constant exhaust note. I'll see how the geometry of the Clayton lift fits with the exhaust and if I need to change it I may go a different route for the muffler, we'll see.

Your avatar picture makes me cringe and laugh at the same time, interesting story behind it I'm sure. Unfortunately I'm about as far from Tallahassee as one can be and still be in Florida. Im in the Ft. Myers area, and I say to bad because looks like it would be fun to go wheeling with you ( referencing the avatar again ).

So as the picture shows I took the Jeep to a local exhaust shop explained I wanted the original muffler cut out and the new Flowmaster welded in its place. 10-15 minutes and $40 later the Jeep sounds like it has a V8

This came in today.


Also received confirmation the Clayton lift has shipped. I found this picture on the web of a WJ with a 6" lift next to a stock WJ, I can't wait.

Nice you inspired me I talked to kolak a vendor on this forum and he recommended the Flowmaster 50 so I ordered it today he said it's loud but not constant like you were saying or droning so I am pretty stoked to get it thanks for your post you really inspired me to get it thanks
