Yeah I know Chris. He's one of the most chill kids there. No issue at all if you want to stop by if you see it parked there.

PS- We should hit up some of the more mild/stock type trails this spring

In hindsight I wish I hadn't got them. I wish I had gotten the V5s. Live and learn I suppose...

Definitely up for some trails soon. I've got a friend with a gravel pit that's fun to play around in if you wanted to check that out at some point.

I did my exhaust with all clamped stuff and no welding. Had an adapter pipe to take the size from 2" out of the cat to 2.5" in the muffler. I love the sound of it.

I'll try to get some pics of the setup later. Might have to wait until tomorrow though.

Got it inspected yesterday. With the doughnut tires on




Inspection station mentioned some trouble spots. And in other news, I had the TC in 4wd... in both 4hi and 4low there was a very pronounced whine Going to need to keep an eye on that.

I didn't. Sorry. But it actually looks almost exactly how the OEM setup is with just one more clamp at the cat.
