I decided to revamp my design and cut a little more of the mesh out. Obviously look's are not what I was going for but more of functionality.

Purchased From: Rocky Mtn ATV
Purchase Rating: 10/10
Description: First off the price is so high because I had to buy 2 50' rolls of this stuff to completely finish my exhaust the way I wanted to. This stuff works really well to keep the heat down from the exhaust. I also think that it cleans up the nasty look the pipes get after running through dirt and mud. I have not had the chance to ride for a full day with this but after about an hour this stuff keeps the exhaust temp down quite a bit. After installing this it I started it up and was checking things out after about 5 minutes it began to smoke. so with that I have a WARNING: DO NOT LET YOUR MACHINE IDLE AFTER INSTALLING THIS! I had to clean my brand new air filter because it took in so much smoke when I wasnt paying attention. After about 3 good hot to cool stages it wont smoke anymore.

Comments: This stuff is a huge pain to install it makes you itchy and to pull 50' of it around and around becomes a huge headache... Is it worth it? I would say so. As you can see I completely cut off the heat guard and the mounts for it. In that particular area this stuff is wrapped around 3 times to keep it from melting my plastic. The first picture I posted is before I cut the shield off it's purpose is to show how I did the header.

Description: Bought this used had a little rust on the mounts so I took it all down to bare metal and painted it with black textured paint to match my wheeler. The first picture of the ground clearance is after I installed my 27" tires the second is after this lift. Remember I put 1" wheel spacer's on and this tends to drop the clearance a touch.

How are you? Great idea on using the otterbox for an Optimizer case! Does this work well? I was wondering how it did with the wiring when closed. Wasn't sure if it pinched them or not.
