Exhaust Hanger, isolator on transmission 4.2 stock exhaust

After putting up my stock exhaust, I noticed that where it goes up and over the skid plate and passes by the transmission there looks to be some typ
e of exhaust bracket. I'm assumming it because the pipe fits right in it. It is a C shape bracket with 2 holes in it. Is there suppose tobe some type of bracket or clamp or isolator whatever you want to call it attached to this. I hate it cause everytime I let the clucth out in reverse I swear I hear the stupid thing bang the pipe. Its annoying. It is a 5 speed manual..if wondering in an 87 Wranger.

Thanks,
Chris

I can look when I get home but I'm sure someone will chime in before then.

I have the same issue on mine, I have re-hung the exhaust about 8 times and no matter what every once and awhile when I take off from a stop to fast that thing will bang loud as he!! down there on the crossmember. Frickin annoying.

There is a bracket that attaches to the exhaust right at the square fitting where the downpipe meets the cat. That is a C shape that goes into a C shaped rubber isolator bracket that is attached to the tranny or skidplate.

see parts 10 + 11:

Makes sense when putting back up the exhaust I didn't use the 4 bolt flange just a straight pipe setup....didn't need it for MA inspection due to the age.....but i have an idea of what I can do now......thanks guys!!!

Mine doesn't look like that....anymore, I just cut it off last night, had to weld a patch where some idiot had welded the bracket to the pipe but it kept tearing a large hole everytime I went wheeling. Problem solved.


BTW, that idiot was me....
