What about you kickers?

Honestly I was thinking of replacing them with focal's. Actually I ended up only paying $20 for them once I sold my Boston's. Don't get me wrong they are great speakers for the $350 range but they can't compete with the clarity of a $1500 focal setup.

Ive been looking into getting myself some obx headers for my 5.7. I heard of some close calls down underneath for mostly 08+ Wks me having an 05 i think im in the clear but should be kinda tight. Did you have problems with rubbing and how much was install since being so close it should be around the same for me if you care to share.

Dont think ive told you before but its a great looking Jeep even if it hates you most of the time.

Go for it bud. It clears everything but your right it is kinda tight. The resonator is pretty close to the tranny pan but there is 3/4" of clearance which is enough. Install was $0 since I did it myself when I pulled the motor. The bolts are a PITA to get to and it is time consuming tho. From what I've been reading on the forums people pay around $800 for the install tho.

And thanks man! That's why I still have it lol

800... might take a weekend and do it myself and just drive it to a shop for a custom Y pipe and reuse my cats. I have this annoying exhaust sound when im next to something like the million of barriers on the highways here. I figure i have a hole or something wrong with it or might bent the flanges when i did my cat back. I take it going without cats here in Cali you have a hook up for smog? Lol

Yup that'd be the way to go. Instead of doing a y pipe I went with a magnaflow dual in single out muffler. Actually longtubes may make that sound worse. The cast iron manifolds actually deaden engine sound quite a bit which the headers will kind of pronounce. I know a place but it's expensive, however Alex might. I haven't had to have had a smog done yet.

I know a shop that will do the job but you get what you pay for I will most likely have to get my welds redone. It sounds like my problem is sleeps problem next to another car or against a barrier sounds like a hole bubbling I hate that shit so I'm taking it to another shop.

Does the sound seem like its up near the engine or near the muffler?

No bro we are talking about a smog hookup shop not a muffler shop

Makes me want to get a part time job once a year. Hopefully its the last time i have to do it before i move away form this tree hugging state.
Lol. When i was in Tennessee, my buddy as a joke tried to rat me out to some cops how i didnt have cats on my jeep. Loved their response. "We dont care. As long as its not too loud we could care less." Then i started it. They was impressed that sound was from a V6 lol.
