Installed header from 1A Auto, flange matches the intake so no fooling with half washers and crap. Rest of the exhaust is pretty hacked, cat was gutted for White Claw money, splices welded halfway around, not a single hanger or donut gasket lol.


After I got at least the manifold sorted, I got the rockers tacked on and the wheel wells tacked in. I picked up some 1/4 round stock for the flare if I decide to keep it, or I'll just cut it flush, no big deal either way.

Ran out of wire at 11am on Thanksgiving, so that kinda put a damper on things, intended to move on to the bastard pack and rear discs tomorrow, but I guess it'll wait.

Looks good. Great base to build from for sure. Tube fenders on my to do list. I will follow your progress. Led lights are nice upgrade over replacing tails. I installed rear corners cause of 6 taillights, have yet to touch a corner after install.

I'm on the fence on LED tails.

I'm giving it to my niece. She doesn't care, won't use them, won't notice, will never break a stock one, and I don't want to spend the money.

However... The harness is completely pooched and so was everyone I looked at in three junkyards. They all seem to rot the lower corner out, then spray goes up there and soaks the unsealed connector and they corrode to death.

So making a box is easy enough, I just don't want to get into buying the converters and everything else.

We'll see how I feel as actual drive time get's closer in the next month or so.

I have some leftovers from a 99 XJ I parted out and may have the wiring your looking for. I'll take a look and see if I have it if you're interested. It's been collecting dust on my shelf for over a year, so it will be cheap. The wiring was in decent shape when removed.

That would be awesome, I appreciate it! I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible while not having it look like it runs on EBT lol.

I'll dig around in the barn tonight and see what I have. I'll keep you posted.
