hi all my question is im sure some of you have put a flowmaster on ur bronco and i am planning on it i purchased a flowmaster muffler right after the high flow cat. its going in the same place as the stock muffler..

ok my question is did you use the same tail pipe or did you use turn downs.. also since im replacing the stock unit for a aftermarket muffler did yous wrap your muffler or use a heat shiled off of an old muffler im just worried since its bigger will this effect my transfer case? i dont wanna kill my transfer casre or tranny if it doesnt have a heat shield... i do own my own hobart mig welder and wanted to know if anyone has a source for heat shields of sorts if this new muffler is gonna cause me issues..

thanks butch

Mine isn't covered at all... just make sure you repack your muffler bearings and it'll stay plenty cool.

Haha, never tried synthetic air in my tires, thats next on the list.

Seriously, at the muffler, there is enough room around it that it's not going to cook your transfer case, or transmission.

Like I said, mine isn't covered at all, and I wheeled my rig hardcore last night, and my transmission barely got up to 155 degrees.

Nitrogen!!?? No man, that's dangerous.
He's referring to the new Helium Air System (HAS). Instead of regular
air you just put this stuff into your tire and it makes your tires lighter
giving you more power and they last longer too. Great stuff really! I think
it's the same makers that came out with the muffler bearings!
