    I've noticed on websites that the one for 2012 w/ 3.6L is only listed as being for the Unlimited while the one for 07-11 is listed for the JK and the JKU. Can you tell me the difference in the two systems? They do have different part numbers... Will the one list for the 2012's fit on the JK? Are the EVAPs located in the same place on the JK vs JKU?

    honestly, i'm not sure about a 2012-up 2-door but, i would have to assume there is something different with it that would prevent the installation of this kit. or, at least without having to do any modifications.

    I called and talked to a guy at DynoMax and he said there were no plans on making one for the 2DR and that this one would not work because it would dump out right over the axle. Now, I see that Magnaflow is releasing a system that looks almost identical to the DynoMax except they DO offer it for BOTH models...the one for the 2DR just having a shorter mid pipe.

    The 39516 listed for the 2007-2011 is suppose to be applicable for both the 2 door and the four door according to quadratec, the problem i ran into was the Mounting position of the last hanger doesn't line up. I am taking it in to the shop to either have the first pip cut about 4 inches or simply having the hanger welded somewhere. Overall it wasn't a big deal. I have been driving it with out the rear bracket and it hasn't affected anything yet :knocks on wood:

    Eddie (or anyone else who knows):

    Thinking about ordering this up. Will it still work given that I moved my evap skid over a couple of inches (to clear the rear DS while flexed out)?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Mike,
    The JKX was barely over a week ago and you are already upgrading? It is a pretty cool sounding exhuast, and I think its even a little better sounding on the newer engines too

    If I have not said it already, it was really great to get to wheel with you again. I hope to get to hang out with you more on one of the next events. You are a good man my brother!

    As if driving behind Moby for 2500 miles and listening to the exhaust drone wasn't enough (or maybe it was the tires I heard), I had to listen to all the other rigs with after market exhaust (and Hemis) for about a 1000 miles during JKX. It was all just too much to take. Plus, I got a quote for a smoking deal on one.

    Likewise, it was great to wheel with you and get to know you a little better. Hopefully we can do it again soon! I'd like to get down to AZ and check out some of your local stomping grounds.

    Edit: I thought I would come away from JKX wanting to upgrade a bunch. But really, I was happy with the way Knuckles performed. I think the only immediate additions will be the exhaust and some Truck-lites. The DTD is on the wish-list but not for a while.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
