Thought about the ground wire for the TB as I was driving by a car stereo shop and thought; why not have them make one if you're really into dressing up your engine bay. They usually have gold connectors and wire routing accessories. All you would need is the end sizes to fit around the bolts and the length of wire to show them what you're wanting to accomplish.

funny you say that, i literally just looked at his whole build thread...still can't quite tell bc his is black so it's kind of hard to see...

AJ, you have any closeups of the driver side of the rear skid so i can see it's relationship to the rear slider? maybe i'll need 4xguards rear sliders to hide the damage...does anybody even have those?

What is the benefit to the throttle body ground wire?

these are the ones I had the quickest links for - But I think some of these are in my BT. All the other real closeups are pics of it installed further out.

It's a nice skid - I liked the original Rear Guard. Because I felt it protected the bumper more as well as the under carriage. The RG2 grew on me though. It is a little more subtle the way it hugs the lower trim of the bumper.

Agreed...the newer one is better looking, but the old might have been slightly more functional

I get to pull my hatch apart and install the LED bulb. Who designed it where the assembly free float once you pull the cover. Then again for some odd reason its hard to get the bulb to work, maybe solder the leads in when its apart for problem freee operation.

Got my Magnaflow 22" large case 3 in and out muffler welded in today..I left the factory resonator in. Must say the different members advice on here was spot on. It sounds great..a low rumble, its just enough but no to much. It was funny bc even the guy at the exhaust shop that did the work was like dam that's the ticket..he said " that one of the best sounding hemi's for DD that I have ever heard...and I have done quite a few." The shop only sells flowmaster he said he liked the Magnaflow deep growl much better. He said that big Magnaflow must have cost you a lot..when I told him $106 with free shipping from Amazon he could not believe it. He claimed that he could not even get it that cheap from his supplier if he wanted to order it! So 40 bux for install..that makes $146 for a great sounding exhaust.
