Drove over 700 miles today. The CRD is great on the highway and I like the smooth ride.

This is what I did all weekend......
Finally pulled them apart and painted them and put Halo's in them.
These aren't Oracle's. I made them out of side emitting LED strips. I purchased 16ft of it, and ran my own halos for about $60 vs the $200 Oracle charges.
I gnarled my lights up pretty bad taking them apart though. I was worried they wouldn't go back together, but they did. Hopefully they won't fog up. But I put some weather sealing on them. Only time will tell.

Finally got to play in some mud so I guess what I did was got it dirty! That's what you're supposed to do to a Jeep right? Please excuse the breeze.

Having my Magnaflow muffler and polished resonated tip from Kolak welded up to my WK 4.7L V8. Needless to say I am excited to be getting out of work and picking it up!!!

Also, they are changing my transmission fluid and two filters and replacing with new Mopar ATF +4 fluid. Has never been done before on my 78k mile Jeep.

Let me know how it sounds brian. I decided not to use the Magnaflow since the shop advised me it would be too quiet, still had the tip welded on though

Will do! I decided on magnaflow because I dont want it excessively loud, just louder and meaner sounding when you actually punch the throttle.

I equate it to sounding sportier at lower rpm's then when you are accelerating on highway it sounds more like a growler. At least from what I heard on youtube for differences between magnaflow and flowmaster. The flowmaster has the more classic muscle-car sound all the time. Magnaflow seemed a little sportier sounding to me with still a growl at higher rpm's.

Did I mention I am excited to hear it and see how the polished tip looks with all the chrome on my limited?

I've been trying to figure out what route I want to go on the exhaust.

Eastern skies, what tip did you order/through kolak?

The polished tip looks real good, I love the look of mine. Seems magnaflow is a good choice for you then, I went with flowmaster the muscle tone its not obnoxiously loud either just a steady tone and opens up when you punch it.

Edit: Pancake I got the same one as brian also check the previous page I linked you a vid of my exhaust.

Trying to shrink the pic but the 70th Anniversary badge (off a wrangler) fits the GC grille exactly...a good mod IMO.

I know I saw the video. I wanted to just get a comparison between yours and the magna flow. I think I like the throatier, deeper sound of the flowmaster. But well see. Just curious, Brianj, how much was the total check for you if you don't mind me asking.

Thanks guys
