    My Bro & I replaced the passenger side ball joint in my Camburg UCA, put the bolt in so the nut is on the lower side(on both UCA's), greased all the zerks, put the caps on the UCA's, installed the front SuperBumps(yes, the allen wrench provided is too long and needs to be cut), rotated tires, adjusted Icons(again!), and I attempted to patch a tear in my CV Boot.

    I swapped out my loud Flowmaster exhaust for a stock exhaust & dumped it.

    Dumped.jpg Unbolt the Flowmaster Exhaust
    Dumped 1.jpg There it sits with what looks like half of Utah caked on it
    New Exhaust.jpg The new stock exhaust that's going on(Isn't it shiney?!)
    Dumped 2.jpg Bolt her up...
    Dumped 3.jpg Decide whether or not I want to cut it
    Dumped 5.jpg And I do! Dumped. :D
