    Well I made the trip to Georgia with the Jimmy. As alot of you know I had a funeral to go to last week. When I got down their I noticed the truck seemed a little louder. Checked it out and sure enough the muffler welds broke where the pipe goes in and out. I also noticed the rotten egg smell from the converter. I got back to Pa on monday morning and was going to get some oponions on what to do but the site was down. I was looking into tossing the converter and getting duels put on but desided I better keep the converter in case the state desides to start emission testing in the future. So I called Summit and ordered a new Catco converter and a Flowmaster cat back system. Was this a good idea. I also thought with this system there would be less underneith to hit stuff when offroad. Any thoughts on this? Wayne.

    BTW the Jimmy did great on the trip outside of the 13 mpg on the highway. Oh well I did not buy it for the gas milage.

    I have heard of a lot of people running those cats with no probs...

    Not a bad choice on the exhuast either, I like the sound of Flows.
    I also like the idea of single exhaust to have less items hanging underneath to attract rocks and debris.

    Cool beans!!!!!!

    Hey I had dual flow masters put on, and I love them...

    I'm running the 40 series, and they are great. They were a bit load, but I found out that thing was running rich... Now that I got all the sensor stuff ironed out and it's running right I love it!!
