    Ahh. We finally see your rig. Can't see much in your avatar. Very nice JK aggrex. The pin striping looks sweet. Would really like to see more.

    Love the Sella Artios/ Corona upgrade. I assume that's an after market upgrade. My JK didn't come with that sweet upgrade. :drunk:

    The special BC decal took a while to get use to but I'm glad I didn't take them off since it breaks up the all-black look and keeps the BC JK unique on the road. Besides replacement decals are around $160. Note: the tachometer has the same matching theme.

    Installed the dual tip Magnaflow muffler on my 3.6L last month and didn't expect much but I got a bit more than just the deeper tone exhaust. The butt-meter says it feels a bit better even with the a/c on and mpg moved up by 1mpg. Small incremental improvements with dramatic upgrades in looks and sounds.

    I like it aggrex. Was just about to ask how you like it. It's on my Wish list now.

    Edit. Almost forgot. Here's another corner of the puzzle. "aggrex's BC Wrangler". No reason to be shy. Your amongst friends. :)

    Nice "oh crap" handles. I like the look your going for.

    On another note. You picked up the MagnaFlow in May. And your just getting around to installing it. What's up dude. Holding out on us?? Does it have any thing to do with the photo of the adult beverages on your tail gate? :cheers: I saw that Quadratec was promoting it. Looked into it. Looked like a nice upgrade. (The Hot Rodder blood in me) Your post convinced me. More cash I don't have. Lol.

    Note: That ain't no ordinary pen...defensive window breaker pen LoL

    Note: the regular sales price is not good enough....that MagnaFlow ain't cheap but it sounds pretty sweet when your on the throttle. Quiet at cruise and gets rid of that JK trashcan. Too bad I can't upload a sound clip.

    I saw Quadratecs video, had sound. I really liked it. Again. That Hot Rodder in me. Lol. A little sound, a little better mpg. Subtle. It makes it a bad ass upgrade. I've wanted it. You installed it. On my Wish list based in part on your post. Thanks for info.

    Now....Need a spare tire first if we'really going to run Rausch Creek. ( hate takin chances) Maybe then i'll finally get to see your BC JK. And I will take pics, and post them here. Since you insist on showing us a corner at a time. Lol. Yeah...could careless about your window breaking pen. Lol. We want pics of your BC. Lol.

    Ps. Based on the corners you share. Sweet rig. Really nice work. We buy our Jeeps with a vision. We take a little from here, a little from there. And we make it ours. And thats what it's about. Theres some thing about Jeeps. We make them ours. The colors, the lifts, the tires and wheels, the add on's.. It's all good. We make them ours with our in visions. And we could care less what other people think. It's my jeep. Like it....or leave it. Sorry for ranting.....

    Found a bit of spare time this weekend: Bussmann RTMR relay panel which has 5 relays and 5 constant power fused outputs. Panel is rated 80a max, protection rating IP66-IEC 60529 and running 80a CB. Cut a custom aluminum L-bracket to install the relay panel. This is part-1 of making the JK light show.

    Sweet Aggrex. I've had my eye on something similar. But that's a great idea, and cheaper than the others I was looking at. I do plan on adding a couple more lights. And that would be a fantastic upgrade. Thanks for posting. Awesome dude.:thumbsup:

    Installed the Rock Hard Oil Pan/Transmission skid, EVAP canister shield for some off-road protection as well as runaway trashcans and the mall curb blocks. Very simple DIY project extended install time by my adjustments to the installation. Grinded flat the OEM transfer case skid so it fit under the oil pan/trans skid plate and anti-seized all bolts. Painted and drilled some drain holes on the EVAP shield, painted the bare metal on the oem t/c skid.
    OEM EVAP bracket: thin metal, cut off for simple install
