The JK did so well at Moab, I hardly had anytime to take and pictures. While I was in Moab I had Outlaw Jeep Tours install a Dynomax exhaust and some MT7000 shocks. Rancho asked me to evaluate them seeing as I was running the Fox IPS remote resi shocks. I really like the Fox shocks and was surprise how nice the MT7000 performed and rode. The are a little bit more firm than the Fox but they give you comparable rode feel. maybe even a less body roll on quick turns. Off road very comparable to the Fox shocks For the money they are hard to beat for a 4" lifted JK. Check them out you won't be disappointed.

This is on a 4" Currie suspension with Antirocks front a rear. The only change was the shocks. I will be putting my Fox shocks back on but my son called dibs on the Rancho as he really likes the on road feel. He told me he like the firmness on his daily driver and he wants to lift his JK anyways.

The Dynomax exhaust is a little louder in the cockpit and there is a slight drone for a very short time. I like the way it sounds and now I'm rid of the huge muffler that was getting beat up badly on drop offs. The center mounted stainless muffler still hangs down a little but it is much better than the rear location.

Good review.
The way you push your JK you will crush your exhaust tip, I already cut mine off out at Grandpa's Garage in Moab. If you want we can convert that to a "pre dump" style as well. Let me or Danny know. Also great seeing you out there as usual, always love talking with you! See you soon. Matt

Matt,

Good to see you as well. I was looking at the tip today and will probably just do a cut it parallel to the ground just in front of the tip. So it still exits out the back but it will point the exhaust down. I was toying with the idea of putting it thru the Poison Spyder bumper but I'm making a new high clearance rear bumper so I didn't want to waste time doing it again.

Thanks!

Have you reconsidered keeping the 4.88s with the 37s? Or are you still going to regear to 4.56?

I'm going to try 39.5 with the 4.88s first to see how they do. I'll probably just keep the 4.88s as it is punchy!

Gerald,
Any updates on the new high clearance rear bumper? I'm looking for a rear bumper soon as the stocker took some serious damage on the trail.

Nice!

Great read, I've followed all of your builds so far and have learned a lot through your pictures and reasoning on designing. Loving the way this is coming along.

Any updates?
plans to re-do the cage? (That reminds me, your unlimited LJ cage was awesome. Loved the fastback design, and how you used the least amount of bends to stress safety and integrity of the cage)
What class will it run in KOH?
Any pictures of how you groove the wildpeaks? I would love to groove a set similarly if they last a bit on the road when groove, any comment on the mileage?

I picked up a trackbar for my TJ awhile back and it was hit by a drunk on the right hand front and it did not bend or anything. It has also survived countless beatings out in the desesrt with plenty of moments like the ones described when the steering wheel is slung from my hands. I always figure "cr@p this time I did it in for good.." and always break everything BUT the parts you make and sell!!! (Drive by brail club )

Thanks for making me want a JK Looking forward to a this year!
