Finally wrapped up the dual exhaust, I can see why people would pay to have this done as opposed to diy. Used the OEM pipe to manifold flange and ran new pipe to the cats and muffler after which the pieces from the kit took it over the axle and dumped it out the sides. When removing the Y collector I used force instead of heat on one side, ended up paying for it, then broke the bit while drilling for an easy out lol.

For the DS a different inlet configuration on the muffler would have given me a straight pipe run, but it works.

PS required some bends to clear the transfer case on one side and fuel/brake lines on the other. I wrapped it for peace of mind.

Made a bracket to support power steering, brake and vacuum hoses and the hood release cable (need new one).

Replaced heater core due to old one leaking, should have done this when I had the front end apart the first time. :doah:

Got the parking brake cables hooked up. Pretty happy about that one, stock sub cable in front and rear cables for rear 14b later model not bolt on. Only extra tuition was rockauto listing different lengths for the front, had to reorder that.

Any chance you have experience with Magnaflow??? I saw you have Dynomax I'd like something quieter than the Magnaflow

Unfortunately no and only limited experience with Dynomax, these two 2.25” and the 3” I had put on first. I’m wondering if the model doesn’t matter just as much as the brand, these duals are louder IMO. I think they both came from summit, so the 2.25” are ultra flo and the 3” is super turbo.

Edit: product description says super turbo is quieter.

Was under the rig looking around and found this pin hole on the supply fuel line.

Planning on replacing the line but would like to band aid it until then.

Has someone had luck cutting at the pin hole, sliding fuel hose over both ends and hose clamping? Maybe JB weld?

Yes. It's only about 15 psi, at the high end. Honestly I would cut the bad section out, run a length of rubber fuel rated hose, and double clamp it on both ends just to be sure. I did this on the wheeling rig to get me out of a bind and it's still there after 2-3 years :whistle2::whistle2::whistle2:

Fuel line repaired.

Sanded to clean metal, primed then painted the line as well as I could. Then a simple flare on either end.

Other side was easy, I was able to remove the line and work on it comfortably.

Just need to go back and reattach the clamps, waiting for them to dry.

No bumpstop mounts on the 2wd frame, so money whipped some up. Used timbren pn a520-75, similar to the Zimmer’s Maiden, limited uptravel to 4” based on this thread.

If it would have had factory mounts, I would have kissed it (Kept It Simple Stupid).
