Lu those parts look like they belong on a hot rod not a jeep! John sure does some beautiful work, I am jealous man those PSC parts look great. Make sure someone has a video camera on you when you go through your first brush patch, not sure if you guys have manzanita out there but that stuff is everywhere over here under 4000 ft and its like thousands of nails as you drive through it, has that nice screeching sound on your paint.

I can attest to this, lol! Only thing worse that the manzanita is the the deer brush and the poison oak. Got plenty of it in my neck of the woods.

Hey Lou, did that Spintech muffler quiet down the Jeep at all? I just put mine on and doesn't seem like it did much at all... Didn't run any more exhaust tubing, just ended it right after the muffler.

No mine is kind of loud. Im curious if I ran extra tube running it to the rear of the jeep if it would quiet down.

It helps, my put put Jeep has just the cats and no muffler, but an exhaust pipe all the way to the back and screaming at 4000 rpm it still isn't terribly loud

It would for sure. Dumping the exhaust right after the belly leaves the sound no where to go but to reverberate under the jeep and be annoying. A bigger/better muffler would help too but it's tough to find a spot for one with all the mods we do.
