Wrangler #2 pulled may boats and went on many hunting trips. That was my last Jeep. :( Wranglers and CJs were easy to get before, but they are priced crazy nowadays.
Ha Ha.. you did get some experience with them... They're too modernized these days. Mine was a Cherokee and was really my sons who was in High School. I gave him a lot of good training on that engine.

No doubt. My Wranglers had no carpet and I kept the drain plugs out. I tried that on the Cherokee and got the stink eye from the wife.





...... But I did haul two quarters of a moose kill and a backstrap in it. I was in trouble for a while over that one.

So I installed my noweeds today.

Wow. It's almost scary how the car freaking shakes and rattles. Holy shit.

Here are some pics I took as I remember to take them. Lot's I didn't remember to take.

Also, the video shows what a bad design the switch is. I can think of about 10 different easy ways to make this better. For such a nice put together system I can't believe what a rush job the switch was. It literally almost cracks and breaks if you raise the front of the seat.

But the system as a whole is awesome so far.






























Pics show various profile pics to show how much they still hang. But should be ok. They work great.

Yup. I was actually just curious to see how they'd go in. They literally just replaced the S pipes. The passenger side I had to cut an inch off of the header end. Also, the opening in the rear end of the pipes were kinda ovaled so I had to pound them to round but I'm pretty good at that. LMAO

Yup. That's a seriously shitty design. I'm going to relocate that switch somewhere else.
