Real happy how it turned out. Even with 2 of the hole saw cuts walking lol, figured out I had to take it off and go straight down nice and easy with a 4x4 under it.



Muffler and tip $14 junkyard
3 stainless band clamps $27
24in straight $7.50
45* bends $6 x2
Saddle clamps $3 x4
Reducer $4
Total $76

Shout out to Bear river converters on ebay, good prices, good parts and quick shipping

Edit- If you've followed this build its Low budget and Slow progress, truck will be henceforth known as Cochese in honor of my wife's grandfather who was the previous caretaker of this rig. He was a veteran and a police detective and is no longer with us. The low and slow moniker obviously references the beastie boys, Cochese was also inspiration for the beasties best song and video for Sabotage.

Redid my hanger and got the pipe up higher, I've cobbled some stuff together but this one is solid lol



Washed up, tires rotated now the wheels are facing the right direction. Got bored and jazzed up the turn signals.

You want me to rename the thread to reflect that? Tell me what you want it to say and I can change it.

Went to another yard to score a 4.10 8.25 for my XJ and checked out their only 4wd D21. It had been there awhile but I was able to grab the rear flares, guy let me have them with the $120 rear axle.
They look great, both were starting to warp but I straightened one out with my heat gun, other needs more work.



Here in lies the conundrum, I like the idea of 4wd fenders, yet my inner cheap skate doesn't want to replace really good matching body panels. I'm tempted to attempt to adapt 4x flares to my 2x fenders but I haven't found much pics/info on that process. I held a finder flare up to a 2x at the yard and it looks kinda close yet not at the same time. Thoughts?

I'll probably go for it, it looks rad with the back flared. And hope for a clean, grey 4x or finder someday
