Thanks Crystal, and yes the exhaust tip needs something to dress it
up but I've got no idea what to do it with? Don't you have the MP tip?
The car rides honestly just about the same. Just a bit stiffer but right
now it's set between it's softest and stiffest setting. Is it harder on
the suspension to be riding stiff?

No my exhaust is custom made, you could get any exhaust tip you wanted and have it welded on the end and that circular pipe cut off. My Mopars state not to ride on full hard or full soft but I'm not sure about the D2s.

I'll have to look into that.. That was part of the reason I almost went
back to stock exhaust, the tip just looked so dull. But it's growing on
me and with a little touch up I'm sure it will look a lot better.

It's the shape of it that bothers me most. Like someone just stuffed a huge piece of pipe there and neglected to put a tip on it.

Mine is just a squished large round tip. Any exhaust shop can squish one and slash cut it for you.

Find a local custom shop and they should be able to squish it for you :)

I've almost forgotten how to do this..

UPDATE!?

Just cleaned up from installing just a few little things on the car today!
A (long) while back I had Caraudiohaulic24 hook me up with some
LEDs to go in my door switches, and months later, just barely wired
the bulbs in! And I must say, they're stunning.

I also finally threw on my front Vibrant strut bar.

Image

And most likely next in line I have this prepared :twisted:

Image

And that's basically it... Just been driving the car and enjoying it
while I can! I leave for military basic training March 6th, and I will
be gone until about September-ish. I won't have my car until I'm
done with tech school :cry:

Before I leave though I plan to finish my dash LED conversion (I've
been having issues with the bulbs behind the HVAC controls) and
wire in my glove box light (which I have no idea how to do :D ).
Then I just need to dye my last sun visor for the driver's side and
my full black interior will be done!
