:headbang: Looks like a great site. I'm new here but this is my 3rd S-Series truck (87 S-10, 95 Blazer 4door, 01 Jimmy 2door). I'm currently in the middle of some mods for my Jimmy (Pulleys, intake, MSD blaster coil, ACCEL 8.8mm Wires, and MSD 6A box). Hope to have some pics up soon. I'm doing these mods for the purpose of making my Jimmy a decent street machine without sacrificing drivablity. One of my questions is about exhaust, I want a cat-back setup that gives me some decent power and at the same time makes the mellow sound that cause people to pay attention as I drive by, but not loud enough to sound like I'm running glasspacks. Any Suggestions?:dunno:

Welcome, and all I can say about exhaust is that my Flowmaster 40 turndown sounds pretty good and is not too loud. :thumbup:

Thanks for the replies so far. Here's another question. I bought this back in September and am just now working on some performance mods. I'm coming up on 40K miles which means new tires. Since this is a stock Jimmy it's ride height is pretty high especially for 2WD. I've noticed alot of posts about dropping these trucks and I know that it helps with stability to some extent but I also like my altitude right now. It seems rather fun to me to not only to outrun a Civic but also run it over while I'm at it (Speed Bump!):whip: So what's better jacking it up or slamming it?

If it was 4WD, I'd say lift it. Since it's 2WD though, you GOTTA slam that f*cker!! :D

Even my wife agrees. She hates climbing up into the Jimmy. So SLAMMIT! I'm checking some tires and wheels for it, once I have that figured out I'll ask how low to go with it. Thanks!!!!!!!:guitar:

Got another question. What is that MAF screen for on the intake? I removed it this evening and am going to see if it makes an improvement on my truck. But it seems to serve no purpose. Any clues?:beer:

Hey I made the mods on my intake last weekend and it ROCKS!!!!!!:headbang: It's amazing how restrictive the stock intake is. I removed the MAF screen, gutted the Air intake box and dropped in a K&N air filter. Next weekend is the ignition. Speed never kills!!!!:sheep:
