One more question, why did you pick the particular exhaust over the other brands? Do you notice any drone during everyday driving or at highway speeds?

Ya, that's right. The kiddos in the back seat were going deaf, because the drone in the backseat was terrible.

No worries bud! I usually try to keep on top of things but sometimes I am out of range or just busy.

Udoxx my current setup it drone free. It is still a little loud, but I like it. At this point the only thing I would buy to swap it out with would be the Corsa system. We will see how well the sound holds up after the header instal. I might need to change it up a bit if it gains much more volume.

Now a few questions...
Is there any benefits to using an adjustable rear trackbar necesarry for 2 inches of lift?

Have you ever thought about building an extended fuel tank?

What is the catch can needed for?
You probably missed these questions...

I was unaware you switched from the MBRP, I may have glanced over that post. What are you using now?

Sorry bud I totally missed this! For the adjustable track bar you can measure your rear axle to see how far off it is. Just use a yard stick or any other staight object and place on end on the ground and push it flat againsts the tire. The stick will extend up taller than your tire and be parallel with your fender. Then measure the distance between the fender and the stick. Do the same thing on both sides and see what the differance is and that will tell you how far off you rear axle is.

I have consided another tank, but its not high on the wish list. There is a company in Australia that makes one that fits where the spare tire goes. Once I remove my spare I could put a tank in there, but then I will need to find another place for my air tank. When I go wheeling I usually carry a two Jerry cans, one water and one fuel.

The catch can is is to filter out the oil vapor before it gets sucked back into the intake. There are many benefits but the biggest one for me being that it keeps the intake and throttle body cleaner.

It's all towards the begining of my thread. I started with the MBRP. Then added a 12" reso. Then swapped out the MBRP muffler for a Magnaflow. The only other one that was available at the time that I was considering was the Gibson, but that cost over $700 at the time.

What are you going to do with the EGR? I thought I read somewhere that the srt doesn't have one.

The Australian company...who is it, the only company I know of is Long Ranger and they don't offer it. I have been searching high and low but obviously that wasn't good enough.

For some reason I knew it was a Magnaflow, I must have got lost in the posts. So much good information and ideas!

@Valpacer...thanks my friend. I picked up a new search and found this Manufacture also. Never knew the Aussies call their GC a WH. I am glad to see this aux tank fit a Commander as well. I did the match and I should get an additional 400 miles with this tank, that is what I need! You guys are pretty helpful, thanks!

No they don't. I have a few option just not sure which route I will take since I still have to pass smog here in Cali. I will keep the thread updated as I start working on this.
