We've the exhaust for 4, maybe 5 years now and really like it. It's held up to our winters and salted roads really well, only the very tip of the tail pipe has some rust on it, which I plan on refinishing this summer.

We went with the 70 Series Flowmaster vs. the Magnaflow since Kolak felt it was a little more tame and comfortable for freeway driving. There is some slight drone, but it's not bad and even on some of our longer road trips its never bothered us or the kids.

I did the install myself, and if you search here you should be able to find the write up, all the pictures should still work too. I did however go back a couple years ago and replace all the u-bolt clamps with some nice stainless steel band clamps as I was having some issues with the muffler shifting and rubbing against the rear bumper cover.

A tuner of some sort is next on the list of upgrades. I'm torn between the Superchips handheld or the Vivid Linq.

About to head over to Ntb to have a few things checked. I might have them do my diff fluid change. Living in an apt. I'm not really allowed to do fluid changes in the parking lot. The only downside is, it's so frackin expensive to have a mechanic do it for you. I guess I'll see what kind of gear oil they have and that will help make up my mind

I joined the 3M carbon fiber wrap club today. I think it looks so much more modern. Pain in The ballzzzzzz though. Especially around the corners. I used the whole roll.

I guess I'll just scour JF while I wait for the rain to stop. Also, seems like a damn good time to start a 24 marathon

That looks really good! I just sent an email to a friend that wraps cars to see if he will do it for me.

Using the Oreillys Lots o Loot promo, I got my last quart of Pennzoil High mileage. Changed the oil and installed a Wix oil filter. Total cost: $10. Using more of the $5 coupons to purchase Champion Copper spark plugs. Still have 7 coupons left and another week or so to earn more.

GCJeeping...saw you were retired USAF. I'm a senior doing AFROTC at the University Of Kentucky. Just got my pilot slot! Can't freakin wait to find out my EAD. Thanks for your service!

BOT: Found out my caster is Wayyyy off...like 3 degrees. The stealership didn't adjust it when they did my alignment because almost my whole suspension is aftermarket parts I guess. Anyways...I'm in the process of adjusting my CA's to try and fix the caster. Hopefully this will also help my DW.

Don't know if you used a heat gun or not but it makes it much easier and looks really clean.

I used a hair dryer and it seemed to work pretty well. It still was a pain though. It's kinda hard to cut with an exacto knife, maybe cause its carbon fiber??

A sharp razor should cut it fine. It's not really carbon fiber lol it's just vinyl with a carbon fiber design. Carbon fiber is like a really hard plastic that's really lightweight.
