Well the girl wanted to finally leave the pavement so I found a little time and space between customers in Central WA.

Put it in SNOW and it creeped along nicely. I did find a low point that was a good 2 foot deep and it didn't like that so much...

I was hoping to find some service roads to explore but today's weather and time frame didn't line up as well for that.

Careful in deep snow, especially if it is somewhat wet. Within a month of getting my KL I high centered in 18" of wet snow when it packed under me...friggin miserable bit of digging to get free.....

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

Also used some high temp bbq paint to treat the factory muffler as others have done. Before it looked like bulbous and out of place. Much neater now.

Aussie lift and tires in the mail. I think that should all be buttoned up within a week or two.

I know I just put paint on the factory muffler, but I keep getting close to hitting purchase online for a magnaflow 12265 muffler in the stock location. Better stick to one project at a time... but that one may come along soon.

Another member had a muffler delete and custom Y pipe installed and had back tips put on. I thought it looked great and I found these for $40. Factory inlet but wider outlet at 4". Should fill out the factory cutout on the rear fascia pretty well.

Before I order them up I need to get a solid labor quote from someone nearby. I would like to keep the entire project under $300 which would mean no more than $130 for labor and pipe. Hmm....

Muffler delete can't sound good though.

I am not interested in a muffler delete, I found a muffler I think would tuck nicely and sound great. The tips would set it off.

The thread is now closed due to bickering, but there are sound clips from another member who did the delete in case you would like to hear it.

Ah...the magnaflow? Is there any welding involved to install on these?

If it's just the factory clamps, it would be a pretty easy install on ramps. I don't know for sure though....I only have experience with my Mustang.
