I Christened it in mud

Took it off-road for the first time today. I went up to the St. Croix State Forest in Minnesota for some running around on the forest roads and some trails. It was raining so everything was muddy and sloppy. Until today the only time I've ever used 4 wheel drive on any vehicle was in the snow. So today was just the beginning of learning how to use 4-wheel drive off-road. All this did besides helping me learn more about my Jeep was increase the bug to do real off-roading. Yup - I'm hooked.

Will do, thanks for the tip.

All most completed a DIY Off Road exhaust.

Story: about 2 years ago, I traded with a guy that had an MBRP off road muffler (not the complete cat back system, just the muffler). I tucked it away in the garage until I got the urge to do something with it.

My original plan was to put it where the stock muffler was, so I removed the stock muffler and put the MBRP muffler on the pipe to see what it sounded like. After a consultation with the family for opinions on the sound, I decided to put it on. Using the stock location was not going to work, though, because I couldn't turn the 90 degree bend quick enough. So, I ended up putting it in the location that muffler was designed for: tucked up on the drivers side between the frame rail and the evap canister.

Cutting the existing exhaust put me past the point if no return, but once I got the nerve, I cut the pipe in the right spots and the muffler slid right into space. The existing hanger right before the exhaust goes over the axle had to be modified a bit so that I could keep the muffler straight next to the frame.

I will fabricate a heat shield between the muffler and the evap canister, although it's probably not necessary.

Better pictures tomorrow if you guys are interested.

Not bad for a craigslist swap for a freedom panel bag that a guy threw into another craigslist deal.

Installed a B&M transmission cooler. Took it to the beach a few weeks back and got the amazing "hot oil" warning. Getting ready to order an aeroforce interceptor to put in next weekend.

Brake Light Mod

Don't blink this video moves fast. I wanted to remove the stock brake light post and install a 3rd LED brake light inside the rear spare tire. This increases visibility via the rear view mirror and is just a cleaner location for a brake light. Enjoy!
