I'm good, thanks. I'm thinking about painting the calipers blue, though. I don't plan on doing that until after I paint the wheels with perhaps matte dark grey or black.
On an exhaust-related note (get it, exhaust note? lolz!), I'm taking my WK into the shop tomorrow to see if they can delete the y-pipe and route a true dual system with a Flowmaster 50 DI/DO serving as a crossover. I'm even taking a day off work, lol.
I'll keep you gents (and ladies?) posted.

Re: 05 WK 5.7L Exhaust mods

Got a quote for $800 to get the above work done. The guy at the shop is excited. Guess he doesn't get to do that sort of thing very often. I'm having him route it all the way back on the passenger side where both ends are going to just point down. That way, it can look pretty stock, but won't sound like a soccer mom's grocery-getter. Won't have to modify the bumper or get rid of the spare tire, either. I'm pretty excited.
If I had the time, facilities, and expertise, I'd do it all myself, but I'm especially lacking on the last two things.
Plus, by keeping the cats stock, I don't have to worry about throwing codes or failing emissions tests, and once those headers are on the market, I can hopefully do a direct bolt-on swap!

Re: 05 WK 5.7L Exhaust mods

Hey guys. my 2010 5.7I jeep is @ AMERICAN RACING Headers. They are using my jeep as a prototype to make headers for our 5.7l. Call Nick the owner is a stand up guy. So far he's been treating my jeep like a million dollar project. It's almost done! 5.7 jeep headers will finally be out there.
