Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Do you realize that doing something "just because" is the biggest sign of a true crack-head!

Just a heads up, not trying to get in the middle of anything but I think he's disabled... The 1 handed comment (shouldn't be) but may be taken wrong...

Anyways love the build!

It may be rare but i sometimes put thought into the words I choose.

I truly respect and admire him and what he does but that does not change the facts, he's a grumpy old man with one hand or limited use or whatever it is.

He's very talented to do what he does like I said before I often have a hard time with two hands and he gets it done with one and with better quality than I can with two.

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

It hasn't fell off or came unbolted yet. Might steer alittle more precise but maybe the same.

Only negative was it was lacking about 6 bolts to install it. Everything lined up well and install took me about an hour most of that time digging through my bolts

It has a few bolts that I plan to replace with weld. Weld the box part that holds the bearing to the cross member. Those bolts are kinda a pain to get in.

I say its worth it.

Sorry I didn't respond sooner. Did you get it?

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Interesting prototype muffler you made. Reminds me of making mufflers with my dad when I first started driving. I have a butterfly valve exhaust cutout of muffler bypass rolling around in my head. It's fun to mess with low impact stuff like that.

Thanks Karma, I like trying things.



Have the new muffler installed, also adjusted tps and dang she runs noticably better probly about a 50horse gain over my no flow through technology.

She no sounds like a one of a kind ls swap in a 4.0 has a very nice clean not in your face muscle car sound. I like it. No pop or riceer car sound at all. Has a sound alot of people would pay for. Though alot of people pay to lake they're rigs sound like crud.

It is absolutely high and tight as possible i clearanced the bolt and stiffner that goes around the curve of the floor pan.

Im amazed its running so well after messing with tps the muffler might be helping alittle too but messing with tps saw instant changes in how it revs.


Almost wish I had a way to do some mpg calcs to see what kinda fuel mileage it gets. Driving noticably lighter on her feet.


Now to go bash this muffler up on the trail
