I don't like that exhaust at all. If I were you, I would rip it off right now. I will provide you with an address to send it to just so it's not cluttering up your garage.

14summithemi, Thought I saw on another thread someone using an aftermarket, cat back Hemi exhaust on a V6...wonder if your stock summit Hemi exhaust would fit a '14 V6...I like the look of exhaust on the summits better than other models...you had the rectangle/trapezoid shaped tips right?

Ya, I like the dual tip per side too...yes, stock was trapezoid that exactly mirrored the bumper skirt cutout...RE the V6, don't know but cannot imagine it works, V6 has each head collecting into a y pipe near engine/tranny and different bends from there but if they dualed the V6 I guess anyone with a shop/welder and some skills could pull it off, would think there would be some relevant tune/power issues to contend with given the huge change in backpressure, etc....never doubt what a "jeeper" can or will pull off

Fascia Grille removal PDF


PS: I will be working on doing an index at the beginning exactly how my build thread is setup so people can click the link with the title instead of search all the pages. May take me a while.

Ordered it online from Mopar One, best price I could find even with the through-the-roof shipping, still cheaper than my local dealers. I like the stock look

The front part of the rail is what I need to work on next where the plastic trim had to be riveted to. The hole on the left is not lined up, I will have to inspect the other side when I get to installing it on the weekend. Pic below.

I like the looks of TH rock rails. Keeps the lines of the Jeep while also protecting it.

I don't understand this comment. The Mopar rails are more protective than any others on the market. Aside from some installation challenges, I don't see any issues.

Rock rails very good protection to sills

But the front area in the wheel arch area is total unprotected and i can see sand and mud being pushed into the gaps in this area and causing issues in the future.
Woudl like to cover this area to give protection of gaps
