    I left the tail bare. It was more work then I really wanted to do for a transmission. It's not like I set up mirrors everywhere I go. I had over 20 hours in the bellhousing before I called it.

    It goes with the colors of the engine. Polished, bare, and black is all you find on the build besides the plug wires.

    I actually had it done already but i fucked up and left the muffler hanging down too low and drug thru it and i honestly didnt want to struggle redoing it. Plus i wanted it to exit as far back as possible and i didnt want to see 45 welds on the tubing going all the way back lol

    LC headers and cat back with Magnaflow cat. had a local exhaust guy, Spencer, weld the LC bits and flange up the cat. Sounds good, pretty quiet at cruise and idle with an acceptable level under power. Has a bit of a raspy note. Be a couple of weeks 'til I can drive it though.

    That's the spirit! Gotta keep the traffic up :bowdown::clapping::drunk:

    Nothing to add other then why: when someone is offering me their rock rockcrawler are they suggesting they want something 'moar reliable', when I'm sure they mean 'modern'?

    Might mean reliable, especially if they beat the crap out of it.

    22r Toyota truck, easily serviced and offering long low maintenance service beat up and rebuildable > virtually anything then he tells me it works well, but it's too slow; understandable.
