Is that supposed to be that size? I though 4.7's were 2.5" throughout? And also what was that thing, a resonator or cat? I thought cat (thus why I didn't also cut it off), but there is no O2 sensor anywhere near it?

Thanks in advance
It's a cat

Lights look good. I'm thinking about doing a full LED interior swap. But first I want new headlights and some HIR bulbs. The stock lights suck!
I had those same seats as you - I hated them! So much happier with the Limited interior swap I did. I definitely recommend it.

The thing with the climate control is if you have dual zone climate control like the limited the bulbs aren't replaceable, unless your good with circuit boards and soldering irons, only the single climate control like the Laredos have are easily replaced.

That's a good price for the rola! I just checked the the price for it on amazon yesterday and I think it was 160 or 170? Might have to go ahead and order one in case the price is going to go back up.

Not in San Diego you wouldn't. Lowest quote for a vehicle drop-off rebuild was over $2500 (without certain hard parts), lowest cost to get a rebuilt unit shipped was $1900 (after core return) without installation and I don't have the time/space/setup to swap a tranny.

But everyone's concern for my money is appreciated.

Frankly, I am money ahead having pro's do certain tasks when compared to what it costs me from a time/opportunity/frustration standpoint ($400 to swap transmissions for example), and this whole event has reinforced that for transmissions, at least for me.

That was my point IMO you were halfway their for 1300 and have a new rebuild unit - as long as the shop gives u a warranty then no biggie I guess.

As long as u had the cash too tho
