Thats a better idea than I had, I was going to make a platform out of wood to hold the exhaust up there while I figure how and where to mount it. I took my spare out when I got these rims on figuring its useless now anyways being a diff size. I hear you can destroy a differential by running diff size tires, even the size diff between a new and used tire, and with this set-up there is about at least a 1/2" diff in sizing.

I know everyone excpet for Denny says take it to a shop, but I think installing this to fit right in my Laredo bumper will take alot of planning, which will be fun for me.

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

So this will be the first stock srt exhaust with a laredo bumper then? I have only seen people do srt exhausts with srt bumpers and a dual exhaust on a WK with the pipes sitting below the bumpers, but havent seen an exhaust on a WK that comes out in the middle of the bumper. I just measured again and if i did get the trailer hitch bezel there would be too much empty space on the sides for it to look good I think, so i think I will have to cut the bumper perfectly and sand the edge smooth or get a trim for the cut edge.

Is this thing going to be loud and maybe give me trouble getting my yearly inspection sticker?

And I actually didnt really knew what the resinators did until you just posted it, I never had resinators on any of my past GC's before.
BFW = Be F*cked With

Yeah, I think that thing is going to be loud. But you can always try it and see. I could try and get you a sound clip of mine, which is a stainlessworks exhaust: http://www.stainlessworks.net/cart/p...oducts_id=1516

It has the chambered turbo mufflers AND resonators. These are far from being the loudest mufflers you can get, and mine is still pretty loud. I know my Jeep would be ungodly loud is I didn't have the mufflers.

Of course, I also have the 1-7/8" long-tube headers WITHOUT cats (one of the rare advantages to calling WY home): http://www.stainlessworks.net/cart/p...oducts_id=1491 These (at least I'm told) make my sound even more aggressive.

I used to think loud was cool but running without mufflers reminds me of the time I had a new exhaust put on my old '78 Ford. I put headers on it and I had to drive about 3 miles to the exhaust shop with nothing (and I mean NOTHING) hooked to it. It was coming straight out the collectors. That was possibly the loudest thing I had ever heard.

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

I have the complete SRT exhaust minus the muffler on my 4.7 and it isnt that loud. I would think the 3.7 would be a little quieter....just a guess though

Yea, but im sure your definition of loud isnt the same as a normal person scott, Haha. I really dont know anything about resinators and how they work but I would think having two of them on would kinda be like having this magnaflow straight thru muffler I have on it now.

And because of the height of the resinators I dont think I will be able to get it up there high enough to have the exhaust tips coming out the bumper, so i might have to be stuck with it below the bumper, which I guess still looks better than mine now on the right side.

Scott, trying to find your exhaust clip to listen to it again, but i remember it sound good and not too loud.

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

Awesome, thanks. I must of just listened to it about 30 times right now. I KNOW the true sound and how loud it is isnt coming thru from that video, how loud is it from inside when your driving down back roads and then on the highway? Is it loud enough cops might pull me over you think? Right now im just trying to think if I want to keep my magnaflow muffler on or delete it.

Like today I heard a piece of crap car going down the road that was so loud I could tell they must of had an exhaust leak, and I dont want mine to sound like that.

Guess what im saying is I do want it sounding "powerful" but not like a car with a rusted out muffler, know what i mean??

Re: Have an SRT Exhaust, Now What?

LOL....on the highway if I turn the radio down I can here it....its a slight rumble...BUT....it really comes alive on WOT. So no...it doesnt sound like a rattle trp, leaking exhaust. I wouldnt have it if it did. I think it sounds like some of the SRT exhausts.
