Sweet! Flowmasters have a great sound on the 4.0

Drone is less than desirable but easy to deal with.

Haven't really done a whole lot lately.
Changed the diff fluids. Fluid was completely black....
On a lighter note, the Dana 35 had no metal shavings whatsoever and everything looked really good


Also threw on some club stickers that I picked up




Probably nothing much to come soon. Just killing time at school for now. Need to get a sticker in April (hopefully she'll pass )

Yeah I was surprised how good they looked there. Good luck with the floorboards Mine are still reasonably solid... at the moment. Just about every bushing in the front end needs to be changed (get to it when I can) and I need to find some rims to fit my stocker tire size. How's that 96 running?

Not the best sound quality, but a little vid of how the exhaust sounds. If you use headphones it sounds decent. It was pretty chilly that day so it gives it the seafoamy exhaust

That exhaust sounds great man! I'm thinking of picking of something similar. Do you really have a dana35??? Mines got the Chrysler 8.25 on it and we've got the same model. Im guessing yours is auto then? I also saw you had a remote start in it, how much did that run you?

Yessir I have the dreaded Dana 35. I'm keeping my eyes open for a 29sp C8.25. So far haven't found any cheap enough though.

Might have a bead on a D44 though... still need to go have a looksee...

A video doesn't do an exhaust clip much justice unless you have high-end recorders and what not.

Haha, I just noticed the comment "hows the 96 running?"
Oh she runs great, changed both o2 sensors and I hope to gain a MPG or two back, the downstream wasn't even connected it was rusted out so bad.

I will have to update my build thread soon, I bought some 3" coils and I just installed an MTX 10" sub in the back. It sounds awesome, it gave me a headache lol.

Hopefully we can meet soon in person at a Maine4x4 club ride. The earliest one coming up isn't ringing a bell, I will have to look in a minute. I went wheeling on Friday with a friend but I need a good organized trail ride to really get the juices flowing.

Well it's good to hear that beast is going good. I'm getting my alternate (235s) mounted tomorrow for my sticker. The sound really doesn't do it justice.

I'm probably going to try to get in on a run soon. I have the itch again... The winter was too long. I really need to trim before I do any more wheeling though.

Cool, I might have to come check it out in more detail next time, so if you see somebody lookin' your Jeep over, it's probably me. You must know Chris Soucy if you work at Timmy Ho's then, good friend of mine.
