Exhaust Pipe

I ahve the 4.0 and have to redo my entire exhaust system. How hard is going to be to get the engine pipe off? The nuts look pretty rusted. They also look like the go through the flange. So if I break one all I have to do is replace it. Am I right here or is this just wishful thinking.

If memory serves me right then yes, it is one long bolt on each side of the flange that goes all the way through between both the male and female flanges. Just use some PB blaster (not when the exhaust is hot). Air tools would also be a plus. Good luck

If one of the bolts breaks,can it be easily replaced? Or is it more like a stud. From the looks of it the bolt drops through both flanges. So should it break all one would have to do is get a new one and drop it in.

What did it cost you 2 redo your exhaust system? I have many holes in mine I am guessing, now that it is winter I am noticing alot of exhaust coming from the bottom of my jeep as well as the tail pipe!!

I'm getting it from www.rockauto.com, thanks to someone here. All told including shipping it's about $225. That includes clamps and hangers. Not a bad deal.

that sounds like a good price for a complete exhaust system. a shop around town charges 350 for a cat back system for our truck (chevy, 3 chamber, dual exhaust). its a bit different but still that is a good price.

just a side note...my chevelle cost me about 400 for a complete dual exhaust system installed (flowmaster 2 chamber).

So what kinda shock would you go with? What is a good shock for a good price? It is shocks all around right????
I guess I am looking for a good ride for a good price. I live in Canada so I need to buy here, to get it shipped from the states is the same as the product.

I had my Dodge truck exhaust done for $250 installed....Guy just does exhaust only and is dirt cheap...Man does he know what he is doing....Too bad I had to sell the truck...(SpinTech Dual Exhaust, cat, 2 2 1/2" toners, no headers though not needed)

Shocks??? Where did that come from??? I'll answer your question though....I would personally go with a longer shock and probably Rancho....I run Monroe SensaTrac on mine now and love em....The prices on www.rockauto.com were good for shocks...If you want a nice shock I'd say spend bout $40-$50 a shock....And yes it is 4 shocks all the way around...If you are planning to get a lift then get the longer shocks as I said earlier...
