Booooooooooooooooooo. Thank you, try again....



LOL. Seriously though, if you like quiet but desire a better sound(which you should by the way lol), you'll love a Magnaflow.

That's why I like my Gibson sounds good at idle but quite on the road.

Yes you can see it in the first picture. Look at the brace and limit strap mounts that are freshly painted.

No they are perpendicular to the surface of the frame and shock tower.

Yeah yeah yeah.... You caught me during our first real snow/ice storm and man was I tired and frustrated in it. 12 hours sleep in 6 straight days of work gets to ya! It's one thing to go out and play in it....it's another when you have to work in it with a $80,000+ truck. lol

Plus, I was pretty darn busy that weekend while I was up there. Had to end my meet-up with Kevin early so I made it to where I was going on time. I just didn't have the time that weekend, brah.

I feel like the Maxtrax would have really helped with this.

Oh ya! I have put them to good use on several occasions now. they work great in deep snow to pull the truck up and out of holes.
