Do an exhaust on each side.............. But honestly I like the side exhaust you have now. Its cool. Or maybe have one exhaust on each side?

Re: JK 18s on my Wk

Can do 1 on each side like it is now because of the gas tank. (i wanted it that way)

I am going to be changing the exhaust for a few reasons, 1, 2 people have burned their legs on it in the past week.

2. i am starting to get the evil eye from cops and i dont think its going to pass state safety inspection, even from the shop that put it on cause he cant put a sticker on it if he knows its illegal.


I looked at it closer this morning. I cannot do dual pipes one on each corner of the rear bumper like i was thinking because on the drivers side there is all that stuff hiding behind the bumper and i dont want the pipes below the rear sub frame, Pass side i could go right through the hole in the sub frame though.


My choices are do SRT style exhaust one tip on each side of the trailer hitch (but it will be hard as hell to get a hitch pin in and i use my hitch. )

Or i can do dual rear exit pipes, 3.5" SS tips on each side lined up just inside the rear sub frame.


Spare tire will be taken out so i am not worried about that. (hoping for run flats)

Re: JK 18s on my Wk

I like the wheels and agree with you that the machined look better IMO than the painted/silver finish. Let us know what route you go with the tires. I had a couple Rovers that came stock with the P Scorpions...I loved them but like you said I got b/t 20-25K on a set.

Thats a bummer you are getting rid of your exhaust. Have you thought about a dump/no-tip look? I wanted a semi-stealth look and since I am big on proportions, I did not want one single tip exiting the back straight out...so I tucked it under at an angle. Dude don't change yopur exhaust...a couple burns and a ticekt are the price to pay for looking/sounding that good

LOL, Thanks.

The exhaust is getting changed though, I am gonna have the exhaust on there up for sale as soon as its off though. (anyone interested keep an eye out.)

I already started getting ready for the new exhaust and it wont be done for a month or so.

I AM going SRT 8 style with the exhaust. I have the class 4 trailer hitch so i trimmed the plastic on both sides (of the trim bezel) and moved the 7 way trailer wire plug. Then when i have the exhaust done i am going to take the spare out. (hopefully i get run flats)

I am going to do dual exit muffler with dual pipes back SRT8 style with SS 3.5" tips.

Hopefully i dont loose the amazing sound it has now.

I am also changing it so i can put the mopar running boards on it.

Re: JK 18s on my Wk

Hey Kyle,

Good choice. I also got a set from ebay for $400 shipped. I went with 255/55/18 tires. I wish I got a beefer tire with the 255/60s but I still like them. Here's a few pics to help you make your decision. Good luck!

It really does, Thats why i am glad i did not get chrome wheels because i think it would have been too much chrome.


FYI, I have tracking numbers now for the first 4 and the 5th wheel. I will be watching these like a hawk as they get closer to their new home.

Even better news! Showed my Fiancée the First edited pic of my jeep and she actually liked them and cant wait to seem them on it!
