After that I ordered a VG Sharkfin and Gibson Axle-Back exhaust. I also went and had the front windows tinted 20% to match the rears. You'll also see the 1Up USA bike rack on the back. I don't have pictures of the Volant CAI and BT Catch Can I've got under the hood.

So hopefully I'm done for a little while...I keep going back and forth on an audio upgrade and interior LED conversion but I think I can wait a bit on those.

Enjoy,

Great job, this is the same look I'm going for.

Thanks, I've been wanting to get down to Mountain Creek this year, gotta make sure I do before the season is up. I was at Highland about a month and a half ago, great riding. Have you been up to Plattekill before? I went last year and it was pretty good, typical rough New England forest riding, just down a mountain.

I love that 1Up rack...best one I've ever bought.

Re: I think I'm done...for now.

Yea i was at Highland the first week of July , AMAZING place and the trails are so dialed in .

Yes , plattekill is super steep , loose , shall everywhere , and just all out downhill lol . Mountain creek is very diverse , it has the fun , fast , flowy trails , with the jump lines and the straight up pure gnar crazy hold onto your bike trails .

Re: I think I'm done...for now.

A very nice upgrade. Are they the Mopar sidesteps and did you fit them?

Thanks. Yes they are mopar side steps I ordered through JustForJeeps.com. I did put them on myself but I had an extra set of hands to help hold stuff I place while I tightened things up.

How do you like the Gibson exhaust? Is there much drone when ECO mode kicks on?

There is some drone but I always drive with the ERS set to 4 or 5 unless I'm on the highway. So in my usual driving with the jeep not in D I don't get any drone. The sound is pretty good for the price though mellow enough to not annoy neighbors in my condo and deep/loud enough to hear the V8 with music at a normal level.

Waiting for the spring warm-up to get the bumper off and install these. Bought the regular black kit w/ hardware and had a local place bake and chrome them for less than half what the chrome ones from Mopar would have run me.

Thanks, with almost 30,000mi on the Nittos I don't notice any extra tire noise and they are wearing very well.
