Installed the Banks MONSTER Exhaust system and a set of 2" wheel spacers today!

I love them both! The Jeep sounds so good now that I turned my music off to listen to my engine, and it handles much better on windy roads with the wider stance. Plus my tires now look like they actually fit under my 6" flares.

I'm going to log a few hundred miles onto the new exhaust, then I'll post a review in the appropriate part of the forum. I have a feeling it's going to be a shining review though!

I don't think it'll be that hot, the handle and shaft are both wood.

Added a pair of leather gloves to the end of the blade of the shovel to prevent cutting into a rubber hose and the gloves are mighty handy. Pun intended.

I had a little time this weekend...

I finally got around to painting my headlight bezels. I also painted my new stinger/radiator-hoop/winch-plate combo and bolted on my new Warn M8000 winch.

I'm not yet at 50 posts, so someone will hopefully make these pics "click-free".

First, the headlight bezels....While picking up some "satin-black" Krylon Fusion paint for my fender flares, I spotted some fusion paint in a dark-green color. I thought it might look nice if my bezels matched my paint, so I shot them with 4 light coats of the green. Unfortunately, the green turned out a totally lighter shade, which I didn't like. So, I painted the bezels black and I really like the way they look.

Bling bling...


Fusion "dark-green"...


Fusion black...


The winch-plate/stinger/radiator-hoop combo came from NoLimits4X4 in Dallas. After ordering it last week, I had the combo in three days and was immediately impressed with the quality of the welds and construction. After sanding it lightly with steel wool, I used my old tried-and-true paint method on this unit. 2 coats of primer, followed by 2 coats of flat black, and a final "misting" coat of spray-in truck bed-liner. The finished result looks like the "Rubicon-black" paint that many bumper manufacturers offer. After painting several bumpers this way, I have NEVER had even one rust.












After bolting the Warn winch to the plate and bolting the entire unit to my stock bumper (which I will soon replace), I ran the wires into the engine compartment and tied them off to await the arrival of my dual-post battery next week.



That's how "Greenday" looks right now. Height-wise, I lost a half of an inch after the winch/bumper install, so I guess I'll add a coil spacer to my "to-do" list.

'97 moss pearl green TJ, 4.0, 5-speed, 3" Teraflex coils +1.5" spacers, Super35 w/ Superior 30 spline shafts, ARB and ZJ disc brakes, Dana30 w/ ARB, 4:10s, AA SYE w/Teraflex shaft, BDS upper/lower control arms, Rusty's HD tie-rod, JKS quicker disco's, Poison Spyder steering box skid, Riddler diff covers, 35x12.50 MTZs on Eagle alloys, Warn M8000 winch, NoLimits4X4 stinger/rad hoop, SRC rockers, Bestop tire carrier, Raingler nets, yada yada...

It's a good life. My wife doesn't look under my Jeep and I don't count her shoe boxes...
