Chris's "OG Status" 5.9 Progress Thread..

I decided to finally make a thread with updates and pictures of everything that I have done to my 5.9 from the day I bought it up until now. Rather then creating a new thread for everything I do, I can just update this one from now on....

Auto Trader Ad Pic- May 2006



First Day Home



Clear Corners



De-ambered Taillights



Window tint



First trip to exhaust shop- Flowmaster Super 40



How it sounded after that....



AEM Intake




After that was the installation of my MOPAR ECU, I have no pics of that as there is nothing to see.

Next was the installation of my Pro-Comp MX6 Adjustables



After that modding slowed down due to school and paying for rent in the house I lived in during college.

Re: Chris's "OG Status" 5.9 Progress Thread..

New Tires- Forterea TripleTreads (Love Them)



Ordered New Poly Isolators for the rear to counter the sag issue I was having...



They were quickly removed and replaced with new stock springs, ride was horrible, too much rake for me.


Stereo Finished



Pioneer DEH-P6800MP, Ipod Integration kit in glove box, AUX Input Sirius Satellite Radio, Sportster 5 (4 Pictured), and Kicker TC10 (great bass for it's size), powered by a small Rockford amp.



After that was the install of a Carsound catalytic converter by Mangnaflow. My stock one had clogged up and was robbing me of a noticeable amount of HP and MPGs.

Next was my Interior detail

Before:



After:



New headlights and Jeep Emblem







New Muffler- Super 44



Thanks, whoever decided to "Cash for Clunk" this beauty...I got some nice new interior parts from you



Just a new door panel, 4x4 bezel, heated seat switch, and new taillights so I can fix my old ones.

That's all I have for now. I have a Mopar M1 intake and BBK throttle body on order so expect new pics and videos when they are installed.

No, just stock replacements. E-codes are nice but just not worth the money imo....I can see fine with these.
