Exhaust installed: 2 cats and 2 flowmaster 50's. Talk about an awesome sou... Show morend.

She's on the road again!!
The only things that are not where they need to be are
1) Rear wiper still goes on and off with the headlights or when the interior lights are turned on. This means each time you open the door you hear the wiper motor cycling. Will work on that.
2) No AC currently. This will be fixed next year.
3) 4 Wheel drive is not engaging. I think either one of the vacuum lines is leaking or the vacuum motor is bad. This isn't a priority yet. Show Less

Yea, I know, still need to clean the wires up. That, comming.
But, over all the engine bay looks great.
Currently the wires in the rear are not wrapped since I have a few things to clean up (like the ignition turning off with the key). Show Less

And My front tires were not rubbing:
To try and get some accuracy out of the test I drove slowly up to the pile until the rear tire started spinning.
