Thanks,

The more I looked at WK's the more I fell in love with this color. I was lucky enough to find one priced right (a few more miles than I'd prefer but WYGD?) that had been taken care of...

Researching tires now....crap, when did they get so expenserative??

I make it my goal to find the most remote geocaches possible

And poor Brooke was stuck waiting while I found it, you'd think she was going to cry having to wait in the jeep for 5 seconds.

Haha, very nice, good job! I have had to do that a few times for people. In fact I had to pull someone back up onto the road in Indiana a couple years back when they slid off the road in front of me during really heavy rain

I love the looks I get when I pull larger vehicles. It's that "They're gonna tear up that little Jeep," look & then the dumbfounded jaw drop when they hear that "BRRAP!"

Speaking of that "brrap". How does that muffler delete sound? Curious if it would be too loud or not. I Don't want a ticket.

It's pretty loud above 3K. Below that its not too bad & when you let off the throttle (and/or MDS kicks in) it's really quiet. I researched state inspection rules a lot before I did it. Texas is pretty lax. Idk about other states though.

Nonetheless, the HEMI is just mean & ppl take notice.

Here's my YouTube page they're not the greatest vids, but maybe they'll help.
