I also made the exhaust adapter. The pictures I took don't really show what it looks like.





I had a flange cut out on a plasma table. I used the gasket as a template.
Then cut up some 2.5" exhaust pipe to form a pipe that is 3.75" oval at one end and tapers to 2.5".

For now I put the exhaust on hold to upgrade the snorkel. The 2" PVC was to small and was restricting the air flow. I'll post pictures when I am done.

It will look exactly like Plumcrazy's

Here are a few pictures of snorkel version 2.0
I cut a hole in the inner fender.


Then cut a hole in the side of the lower air filter assembly.



Then placed a piece of 3" exhaust pipe in, riveted and sealed.







All tacked together. It's not done, still need a 90 degree elbow.







In this picture I have the driver side headlight and corner lense in.

When all if the mods are done to our vehicles, we need to get another side by side picture, the one on my desktop of when we met is out of date. Maybe mine will have a paint job on it.

We can do that. If you don't make it to the spring meet, I just might have to make a trip to the Badlands.

If I'm 4wd. I want to get a trackbar like yours then weld tabs or a holder for the eyelet end on the frame mount, want to get rid of the TRE one i have, will help with the steering slop i have. You get the drag link shipped yet, it will go on at the same time i do the trackbar mod., no big hurry for it though.

So much todo, so little time and funds
