Exhaust routing.

So I am trying to figure out the best place to run my exhaust tailpipe. Last time I went out wheeling I filled the tailpipe with some nasty clay and it blew the muffler open. I do alot of "mudding". Is there a good spot to run it where this will not happen again? This happened trying to back out of a hole.

I bet that was loud! I don't think there really is much you can do unless you want to run it out the side, old school style. Which I do not recommend

Well...
You will need the end of the pipe to go to the edge of the jeep, for safety reasons.
What I did was to stuff the tail pipe as far up into the frame as I could, and it comes out on the side right behind the rear wheel.
It did give me extra clearance.
Here you can see the end sticking out.

Yes it was a loud POP. Actually got it on video. Was a very loud day of wheeling after that.
