    Awesome. Thanks again for suggesting this one. It sounds a little louder than stock, but just a much deeper tone. The wife and I drove around in it about 50 miles on Friday in town and highway. We both agreed it's not obnoxious or cumbersome at all, very clean sound. And I'm running Herculiner inside, no carpet. Love the sound and love the new clearance.

Driver's side doesn't seem to be rubbing.

    And here's a drawing pic showing about where the new brackets are compared to OEM.

    Cut the bracket. Plasma ain't pretty but sure does the job quickly.

    Next time for sure. I dragged the exhaust many times on the white stuff today and it's still pretty looking and in one piece

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.
