Replaced my stock muffler yesterday to make room for the rear triangulated 3-link.

My rear bumper has been removed for a while so I painted the frame with black trim paint so it didn't look so hideous.

Extended my rear axle breather line and moved it up higher in case I end up in the deep end.

Trimmed up rear fenders a bit more to round them out on the back end.

A few weeks ago Chris and I swapped out my Zone shocks for Teraflex ones we also relocated my evap canister to make room for the aftermarket muffler.

I installed some Metalcloak front wheel well liners after ripping the plastic ones out.

Seems like I did more stuff but I can't remember what.

Transmission output seal finally failed after 200k miles.

4 hour job. My hands didn't bleed once!

Win.

I pulled off the diamond plate the PO put on to see what kind of condition the rear end was in. I was pretty impressed that I wasn't rocking huge gashes or anything. There was a bit of bubbling rust on both sides but no more than about a 3"x3" area. I don't particularly like the look of diamond plate so I think I'll leave it off until I bang it up and need to get it back on to hide the damage.

I got them from a company called RodLouvers.com. They are cheap if you get their unfinished panels and round the corners and drill your own holes.

Would said guy be able to tell a difference between a 2.5l and a 5.7l? It will pass my HCs before my new exhaust was around 80, and I'm putting cats on before I take it in.

An engine swap isn't illegal as long as the new engine is from the same year or newer as/than the vehicle its going in.
