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.

A Clean 2006 Duramax, Leveled with Bilstein shocks

The owner of this 2006 Chevy Silverado didn't want to do a full lift, but rather a leveling kit fit his needs.  This duramax is normally used to tow toys of all sorts & it is used to its full potential.  Already having 17" chrome wheels mounted on Wrangler tires, the Pro Comp Torsion Key leveling kit was installed.  Shortly after; the gas charged, silver Bilstein shocks were bolted into all four corners of the truck.  Keeping this truck mild & reliable is what the customer had in mind & he accomplished that by doing a couple simple bolt on modifications.

2009 F150 leveled with wheels & tires

Leveled F150

Upon returning from Iraq, our customer was in need of some fun. He decided that a brand new Ford F-150 might just fit the bill. So he brought in his, fresh off the showroom floor Ford F-150 crew cab. He wanted to keep it mild yet have it look wild.  A Pro Comp 3" Leveling kit was installed & the front end now sits level with the rear of the truck.  To get that aggressive look desired, a set of black 20" KMC Addict wheels were mounted to a set of 35" Mickey Thompson tires.  This truck went from mild to wild with a just a couple of modifications.

Another Lowered Dodge Challenger, A Completly Different Look

black challenger

This customer came to us wanting to slightly lower his Dodge Challenger.  While already having 22" wheels on the car, a mild drop was in mind to keep the stock ride quality yet have that mean lowered stance.  A set of Eibach  lowering coils were installed which had the fenders hugging the tires while having no rubbing issues.  This clean cut Challenger is sitting low & cruising the streets daily.

Lowered 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT 8

Orange Challenger

This customer had a 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT 8 & wanted to fine tune the handling characteristics.  Removing the already race designed factory coils, front & rear Eibach Pro Series coils were installed along with Eibach anti-sway bars.  With the car closer to the ground & ready to beat the pavement into submission, a Hurst short shifter was installed to close the gap from gear to gear.  Saying that this car is fun to drive is a understatement, as there is very little body roll & each gear is closer than the tire to fender gap.  This retired police officer wanted a car a little badder than the cars he had been pulling over & he certainly achieved that goal.

An Immaculate 2010 Escalade Lowered on Lexanti 26″ Wheels

2010 Cadillac Escalade

Nothing looks better than a brand new vehicle right off the show room floor.  Oh wait, taking that brand new vehicle, in this case a 2010 Cadillac Escalade, and bolting some 26" Lexani wheels on it just about does it.  The customer wanted to keep it clean & still have something custom.  A Mcgaughys leveling kit was installed. Then some minor trimming was done up front in order to keep the stock turning radius & not tear the fender wells apart.  When done, this Escalade was ready to hit the streets.

2008 Chevy Tahoe With a McGaughys 2/3 Drop on 24s

Talk about one bad ass grocery getter.  With the customer already having 24″ wheels on his Tahoe, he wanted to close up the wheel & fender gap.  The simple solution, installing a McGaughys 2/3″ lowering kit had this Tahoe sitting right & riding nice.  There was some minor inner fender trimming done in order to ensure there was no clearance issues.  At the end of the day the customer was very happy with his SUV.

2005 Chevy Avalanche with a 2/5 drop on 22s

Chevy Avalanche
This customer already had a 2/4 lowering kit on his avalanche, but the kit was having issues.  The solution was that we pulled off the old kit & installed a 2/5 McGaughys kit. I know what your thinking, a 2/5 instead of the traditional 2/4?  It was what the customer wanted & it came out looking really good.  After the kit was completed, a very nice set of chrome 22″ wheels were bolted on.  Shortly after we also installed a K & N cold air intake & superchips programmer.

2008 GMC Yukon Denali Lowered on 26″ KMC Slides

Fresh out of the paint booth & brand new set of 26″ black KMC Slides bolted on, we pulled this 08 Denali into the shop & got to work on the McGaughys 2/3 lowering kit.  Everything bolted up flawlessly & to clear the huge 26″ wheels, the the inner fender wells were trimmed & the factory steps were relocated a 1/4″ back.  All said & done, the truck was aligned & drove perfect with no rubbing issues.

2005 Ford F250 with 12″ Bulletproof Lift Kit on 40’s

Ford 1

Our customer brought us his 2005 Ford F250 & said he wanted something over the top.  After discussing different lift kit options, he settled on a 12″ Bulletproof lift with adjustable Fox coilover shocks.  The rear of the truck sits on a set of Fox shocks with reservoirs.  The truck sits on 20″ chrome Outlaw wheels with 40” tires.  To keep this monster street legal for Arizona law (which requires mud flaps to be minimum 7″ from the ground), a set of custom adjustable mud flaps were installed.
