Looking forward to starting my Christmas shopping tomorrow. Should be fun.
Not sure what to get the little lady yet. I'll decide tomorrow or Tuesday.
I need to put a tailpipe on my Jeep. Now that I have the doors and top on, I can sometimes smell fumes.
Has anybody just put a pipe from the back of the muffler straight out to the side rather than go over the rear axle? I don't think it would be too vulnerable there as the leaf spring is below it. Unless I dragged my rail on a boulder. Thoughts?
They sell the over the top pipe at Autozone for cheap too.

I had my exhaust cut off with a downturn after the muffler and hated it. It was loud inside plus created a lot of dust. Cost me about $100 for a new tailpipe installed from the muffler back

Picked up Calsouth from the airport last night. Less than 12 hours later we were already tearing the rear end apart to install a new track bar and relocation bracket. The best part of Christmas for me. Working on the jeep with my son. Don't need no gifts.

It's the best way. Most people don't, so the stores aren't as crowded.

Agreed! Unless it's online shopping I do it a day or two before for the same reason

I was out there this morning. The only place that was crowded was Costco. Very little traffic. Shopping done.

Meanwhile.....

Merry Christmas EVE you goons

My family did our Christmas tonight considering we have a busy day tomorrow. Got some AR parts, an MRE, socks (important), and some misc things.



Just a handful more parts for the AR and it'll be ready to blow up some tannerite
