A+ with the sexy and functionality factor. I would buy one. You ought to design one for the two door and allow for easy removal of the hard/soft top. You have a real winner there. You could sell them at a reasonable price and stomp the comp. The fact that they are designed to a more modular fashion is smart for shipping purposes as well. Plus, a good chunk of your market is found right here. No loss of profit on advertising. Pics and a PM is all it takes.
I finally got around to installing and relocating the muffler.
I used this one that is like a glass-pack but it's not!
Before removing the pipe I marked the location of the 2 cross-members so I could center the muffler between them.
I then cut out a 19 1/2" section of pipe and clamped the muffler in place with these clamps that I got through Amazon.
The little yellow tool is for de-burring the inside of the pipe.
I used a little bit of high temp silicone in the joints to provide an extra layer of seal ability.
It sounds pretty good, though I haven't driven around yet.
I'll post some final pic's and a review tomorrow.
Not my idea but it is my choice of muffler.
There is at-least one company making a kit for this set-up for about $350
My total came to about $200. $125 for the muffler $45 for the stainless tip and $20 for the AccuSeal clamps.
As for clearance, the entire pipe is the stock piece with all of the hangers intact. I even cut a hanger from the stock muffler and welded it to the new tailpiece.
I really like the new sound. It's a much deeper rumble at idle and smoothes out at higher rpm to a mellow tone. Not loud at all and just a little "brap brap" popping when coasting down.
2006 Rubicon unlimited, silver. 5.5" long arm lift. 35" BFG KM2's on 15" black steelies. skidrow steering skid and radiator skid . LOD rear bumper with tire carrier. Flowmaster 44 exhaust. .CB with tuffy Overhead storage . Offroad lights in bumpers front and rear plus 2 more on the winch hoop.
Thanks guy's for all of the great feed-back
I have another design concept in my head right now and hope to be able to produce and make available some racks and other stuff early next year.
I don't know if a patent on such an item is an option. I think it would have to have some kind of unique operation or feature.
I will check into it though!
