Ehhh.. I don't know about that. Maybe a 45* with a double tip would look good.
A full side swipe behind the tire/the rear would probably look a bit out of place.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

I think he should just say "screw it" and put one of those band-aid stickers on it. Or get a license plate that says "brnvktm"

I was kinda thinking along these lines.It's not a '32 Chevy Mr. Master of the Vanity Plate: $54 from Summit and red guts too!

Hey, at least you're getting it all done on the front end so you can enjoy it once it's done. I think you'll really like Bilsteins or Koni's over the Ranchos. I've had Ranchos...good shock, but clearly built for off-road. A friend of mine installed Koni's on his XJ and it was night and day over stock just like the Bilstiens were for me.

Wait...they make a Brembo big brake kit for the WJ?

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

....The Brembo's are my own doing.996 Porsche monobloc 4 spotters all around,330x30mm front discs,330x22mm rears Ferodo DS2500 Motorsport pads.Still need a little tweaking with a couple of things to retain the stock hand brake.
Wheel clearance has been the biggest drama,I got hold of a set of 20"x8" G2 wheels......worse fouling that the stock 17's.Solved it with the 18" AEZ forgies I am running now,could even bump the discs up another inch if I wanted to.I think the 2013 on 18" factory wheels may clear as well.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Cheap, I think you should get one of those huge tips that the diesel truck guys use. You know the kind you could fit your head in? Just ask the diesel guys those are cool, you should do that because it would be cool.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

You mean the ones that you have to have a lift to keep them from dragging on the road? We have a Wyotech 15 mi from here. Most of those kids are majoring in Advanced Sewer Pipe Sized Exhaust Tip and Muffler Installation.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

I think there is room for a big exhaust tip like that AND a set of balls dangling below it. Class it up a little dude...
