You happy with it? (The exhaust...). You recall what it cost to install?

The rear didn't have any spots to pull out I just stuck the wires through the top of the plug that goes into door. It had a clip thing that held the plug in the door and I broke one on accident but it still stays on the door with the bottom clip.

I had them ran on stock wires for a year and the cross overs were inside the doors and were getting wet so I remounted them on the door panels and ran new speaker wire all the way around. I will post pictures tomorrow or a week from now.

I hope that made sense haha

I should of snapped pictures of the connectors but unfortunately I didn't and the rubber parts are a pain in the *** with my giant hands so I don't think I'll be messing with them again unless I need to.

Changed the oil in both diffs and the engine. Removed the BB and installed my IRO 3" springs all around. Got more than 3" from stock lift too. With new isolators I got 4" lift in the rear and 3 3/4" lift in the front.

If you own a welder and a grinder, it will fit :-)

Washed all the mud and dust off, hosed out underneath real good, wiped down the inside to get all the dust out from yesterday's ride, checked all the fluid levels. Began trying to figure out where the coolant from the overflow bottle keeps going.
