Just ordered the 50" Rigid E series at LED Light Bars|4WheelOnline.com. It's really expensive but the good thing is that the shop gave me a nice offer. Will mount this light bar on the roof.

I bought the Corsa Xtreme Exhaust System for Christmas but just now got around to installing it because I have been out of town. Today was the first time that I drove my Raptor since January 2nd. It was a brutal couple of months.

Anyway, the weather was nice enough to get in the garage and get some work done. I saw somewhere on here that some guy lost his SW exhaust system while driving the other day so that kinda scared me a bit about installing it myself, but I decided to save a few bucks and do it myself and get some experience in the process. As I learned with installing my front bumper things are not as intimidating as they appear.

It took me about 2 1/2 hours to get everything installed. To me, the hardest part was uninstalling everything. It was super easy to put everything together once I got the huge stock exhaust system out of there.

The sound is amazing. Not too loud when driving normal with the wife, but when I need some noise it has it. I took a before and after video as you can see below:

Before: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAkDvrS7DQU

After: www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcT7-Gh9P7E

Ya that was me. Thanks for the shoutout. I think it was more about design than the install with it only having one hanger. Plus the hanger was smooth and didn't have a flair on the end to keep it from sliding off the rubber. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Lol. As long as you go back and retighten the bolts after you drive it a little and it warms up I don't think you will have a problem. But if it does happen to fall off make sure you post it here so I'm not so lonely. Lol.

I'll give you a good deal on an SVC Light Tower. Has flag pole mounts though.

My 2014 Supercrew 6.2 definitely gets better mileage than my 2004 Supercab 5.4-3V.



All the best,
Dave
