    I wish I could think of a witty comeback, but the truth is this thing is 100% mall rated until I can get home in may and see what it's capable of

    on the plus side, Y pipe back 3" exhaust is coming my way by the end of next week

    what is the wiring upgrade for?

    the guy has replied to all my emails basically instantly and worked for my business, he didn't really leave me a choice but to buy his kit lol. I'd much rather deal with the smaller guy than the big box company

    He offers upgraded wiring kits if you run high output bulbs. Most recently, I did an H4 & Euro lamp conversion on a ZJ, very nice kit, he also has a kit for XJ's and a wiring only upgrade for WJ's that dramatically reduces the power draw on the factory wiring resulting in better lamp output.

    Well, the exhaust has been on for a couple weeks now. Absolutely love it. It sounds great at idle and through the gears. I'm going to weld it instead of using the clamps and I'll get some pictures up and some sound clips of it. Surprised how quiet it is in the cab!

    P.S. Your bumper is hanging.

    ---------- Post added at 10:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:30 PM ----------

    And look at the silver fish thread for the washer bottle fix.

    ya, I came WAAAAAAY too close to doing just that C.C, where do you suggest i relocate it? luckily it stalled itself out before it could take on a big drink, im an idiot

    I'll be on fixing the bumper once I get the tie rod adjustment bar (dunno the technical name for it) and it's back home in the shop, still at my buddy's waiting on parts

    Also have to hit the junkyard for the washer bottle. where most people relocate their washer bottle, mine has a box of some sort, dont know what its for..did you have to move yours CC?

    Oh cap you have the V-8 umm I don't know where you can mount the bottle. Just remember the lines and wires can be re routed or extended if need. be.

    I put the air filter right on the 4.0l throttle body. I would have killed mine a couple times this year if I hadn't.

    The cross bar... Make a new one from DOM and bungs.
