The extra outlet makes these 2.4's sound so distinct. You can always identify a srt4 by the exhaust sound. Lol... the black paint made it look brand new again.... NICE

This is really cool. I was unaware that Chrysler actually made a 'dual' exhaust for the Cruisers. I thought that they were all aftermarket.

I believe they were actually made by Borla but were sold under the Mopar name by Chrysler.

OK, so I messed around with the other two step pads (see my previous posts in this thread showing the 2001 Durango and 2004 T&C step pads) and decided that I didn't like them because they really don't follow the curves of the Cruiser bumper. So, I went ahead and cut down the 2010 T&C step pad to fit, and it turns out that it really does match the curves of the bumper the best.

I'm not sure I will mount it yet. I really want to find a newer Caravan or T&C step pad with the chrome trim.

How did you notice the old sensor was bad?

Fuse box cover, cubby cover and
Two remote key fobs.
Installed all but the center console, needs to be cleaned before I put it in and the wife wanted to be the one to clean it, but she didn't get back from the eye doctor until late..
Must say i envy you for getting your wife and daughter to help you with the car. My wife and 25yr and 21yr old daughter only say it's a manthing. On the other hand i get to hang out in my mancave (garage) with no interruption.

So after about six months (not efficient time) of changing TB, pulley and tensioner, WP, right engine mount, cam and crankseals, camcover gasket, heater core, radiator with all hoses, thermostat and a lot of rust preventive maintenance I finally got to start and drive "Dablik" (little devil in Czech). I was surprised that there was no doubt when starting up, just started directly on the first turn of the engine even though it's been standing still for a long time. No leaks anywhere so life is great again and my wife has a car to drive. Thanks Rick, Chuzz, Spacemouse and all others for your help and support while doing this project. I couldn't have done it without you!
