Re: a story of Redemption

Sorry to hear about your injuries. At least you've accepted it! Jeep looks great! Why did you go with such a big tire?

Re: a story of Redemption

Thank You , Its been a struggle to get used to my new "Normal life" and still is at times but I have a Great wife and son who have stood by me ( sometimes dragging me ,LOL) forward lol .


I liked the SRT rims and while I was Talking to Scot at OE Wheels about what I was doing and how I wanted it to look . Thats what size seemed to work. In hind site, I would have probably gone with a Tire with a little less height but same width . The tires do slightly rub at full lock, which isnt a big deal . It is rubbing the plastic inner fender.
I have not really looked into fixing this yet , Other things have had me occupied .

It rides great and handles like its on rails,lol.

That was another reason why the LJ had to go . My 10 year old and his friends were getting to big to be jumping in and out of the back . I used to remember taking my son in his car seat ( well , The best car seat I could find ) up on the trails ,lol. He used to Laugh ,lol

Just a update ... Sitting on the porch this afternoon was a Flowmaster 942542 -40 series muffler . It is 2.5 center inlet /2.5 offset outlet

Re: a story of Redemption

At this point , This is just so I can cut the stock muffler off until I lose a Tail pipe and can convince the better half on a better solution . I even offered to buy her one for hers .
I got the "Is yours bad speech" and figured with what all I have purchased in the past two weeks , I would be pushing it to go the whole $600.

Have to keep the better half Happy as well

Re: a story of Redemption

I like the taller profile of the tyres. Wondered why you are going to a smaller muffler than standard though?

Re: a story of Redemption

Well, I was hoping just to do a swap.... stock muffler for the Flow master but after a few emails with Ryan ( THANK YOU, RYAN) , I realized this was a bad Idea .

so here is the new plan .... I plan on picking up a cat back with a 3" tube from cat to tail pipe . I am currently looking at flowmaster kit number 817534 Here is the link to the specs.
http://www.flowmastermufflers.com/sh...oducts_id=4495

Maybe I am wrong on this but while i was researching the different exhaust set ups for a 5.7 90% were 2.5 " tube , some were 3"from Cat to Muffler then 2.5 " tail pipe. There were only 2 that had 3" the whole way from cat to tail. They were the Gibson and the Flowmaster , which the spec are linked above.


My original thought behind this was , The flowmaster I bought would still be better then the stock restrictive muffler and I was thinking of going duals in a little bit of time (year or two ) but as I was laying in bed thinking about it. My has the tow package and we use the hitch for bikes and other things and I dont really want to lose my spare , Not to mention the cost of doing a custom exhaust.

so I sort of given up on the duals for now anyway .

No big deal , I can use the muffler I bought on the wifes 2006 Commander with a 4.7 . So, it kinda worked out ,lol
