Made a little fuse box for the lights and cb and compressor. 2 open spaces left for the light bar and rock lights eventually. Some fuses and a small Tupperware box called a lock and lock that was laying around my garage, drilled some holes in the side and ran the wires. Now only one cable headed off the positive battery terminal for accessories. Double sided sticky tape to attach the box to the battery.

Re-Built and Installed a rear deck cover.

My First go round I used PVC, looked clean, but way to saggy in the middle.

Opted for 5/8 pine Plywood, stout!

Carpet from the local stereo shop and a can of glue, 2 eyebolts to secure the top when it is down, and Bam! Done!

Used what was left of the plywood and 1 1X2 to make a shelf underneath for the side windows.

I notched it our to accommodate the tailgate support, so with the doors locked, you can't get in.

Working on a lock for the seats that will keep them from being able to be used when the top is down. Thinking about cabinet locks, or tying in a pin type door lock solenoid to work with the door locks.

Mounted up my new 10A bumper and sliders.

Any suggestions on the wiring harness for the fog lights from an 08-present h16 connection?

Did you buy that or get it from someone with a 10A? That bumper is so awesome. Looks great!

I went to MBRP's S5518409. Its all stainless steel, and tucked up forward of the rear axle, above the bottom of the frame. Not only that, the stock muffler alone weighed in at 22lbs, this is entire system weighs only 17. The aft end of the tailpipe is turned down, no tip. The video could be better, but what the hell eh.

It IS super light and super tucked, but not without headache. You do need to decide if it bothers you that your muffler is now 2 inches away from your evap canister (which is plastic). Now they DO make a heat shield/relocator that both throws a steel plate between the two AND moves your canister over another inch. I have ordered it but haven't installed it yet.

For now I just put up a piece of sheet metal with heat resistant cloth in between the two. (Sharp eyes may have noticed a muffler strap around the edge of my evap canister skid, that is what is holding the sheet metal off the muffler itself) I personally think it will be fine, though the manufacturer considers it necessary. Alternatively, one could chop/bend the now useless heat shield above where the old muffler was, and put that in between.

Dynomax makes a slightly cheaper version, I *think* theirs doesn't quite locate the muffler so close to the evap can. Kinda leaves your tail pipe more at risk though. (If you wanna check it out, Quadra has it. Look for Dynomax high clearance)

Today I painted my ac vents to match the body color, it turned out good but since its Steel Blue it's kinda hard to see. Oh well...

Added a Dynomax 39510 Super Turbo Cat Back Dual Exhaust. Popped up Craigslist, heard it on the sellers wife's jeep and couldn't resist for 150. The jeep now sounds so much better and tone now matches the jeeps aggressive look. It's deep and rumbly and I can now tell if I left the car on while on the trail. Stoked.

I saw a little text line on their website that said something about cobalt trucks when I checked out, but I really was paying much attention to it. According to the tracking number it was shipped out yesterday (I ordered on Wednesday) so maybe they've stepped their game up.. I'll be sure to report in when I get it!
