Magnaflow’s new bolt on cat-back system for the 2010 Jeep Rubicon

Sometimes owning a brand new vehicle can limit yourself to aftermarket bolt on products.  Not in this case though, Magnaflow was on top of their game when producing this bolt-in, cat-back system for the 2010 Jeep Rubicon.  Our customer wanted a nice exhaust that would aid in performance but not have a overwhelming tone while driving, the Magnaflow kit was perfect for his performance cravings.  As you can tell in the pictures the stock system is substantially more restrictive that the Magnaflow kit, and size was an issue being how this jeep is going to be seeing a lot of off road trails.  With the stock bulky exhaust removed, each piece of the Magnaflow exhaust was slid into place & clamped down using the supplied hardware in the kit.  Minor adjustment was made to get the exhaust tip exactly where desired by the customer.  All said & done the customer left very happy with the new performance & sound of this Magnaflow system.


Welcome 2009! Helping You Acheive New Years Resolutions!


As the end of the year has now come and gone I hope that everyone had a good, festive, and warm holiday season. We here at Grunion Fabrication had a very busy holiday. From a before-Christmas retail rush to building a car for bike builder Paul Yaffe’s significant other in under a week (more pictures in our Vehicle Gallery), it was definatley a hectic season.

For New Years a few of us here took a small break and headed north to Snow Bowl to take advantage of the relatively new snowfall.  Thanks to the great weather, we made it home with only a few sore muscles, but no broken bones.  And now it is time to get back to work building cars.

Since it is now 2009, we know that no new year would be complete without setting a few New Years Resolutions.  Now, I know that you are thinking, you may not be the kind of person who does resolutions because you can never follow through with them. But, we have come up with a great list of popular new years resolutions we can help you acheive in simple effective ways!

Slam Specialties SS Bags

SS Series Slam Specialties Air Bag

The new SS Series bag is a special combination of the newest technology along with the proven and tested high quality standard Slam Specialties design. These are a 200 psi air spring that features new impact-modified composite plates that give you a non corrosive, non-marring mounting surface.  For strength and durability they have chemically bonded Zinc inner plates with integrated bump-stops. Along with all of the other great standard features they retain Slam Specialties signature non-ballooning design and they are going to be available in all of the standard sizes.

The new SS series bag is a 200 psi bag that will have all of the same specifications as the current RE models.  However, this bag will be special because they have replaced the outside aluminum plates with composite plates. This means that with the substantially rising costs of metal and shipping, we are able to offer you a budget friendly option that still gives you the quality that you have come to expect when using Slam Specialty air bags. We know that people are hurting for cash in today's economy so we are happy that there is a reliable solution available.

The new composite plates will make the bag weigh less and give it a uniform look.  The bag and composite plates are both black which makes it cosmetically appealing.

I know some people will be worried about the composite plates, but the beauty of this bag is that the plates will have no affect whatsoever on the bags performance or structural integrity.  This is because the bags port is attached to the inner aluminum plate and it protrudes through the composite plate, so the port is strong and you won't have to worry about leaking or stripping threads. 

Overall, we are excited that Slam Specialties have come out with this budget friendly option as well as continuing to offer their other great air bags. The SS Series bag will be available in early 2009. Please contact us with any questions you have about this or any other products.

We would love to hear your comments on this and any other blog subject!
