you can weld. cut it off and re-weld it when done

Heh. Yeah I did the same thing. I took out the tailpipe totally and just put a short turn-out after the muffler, like only 4" long. Technically it counts as a tailpipe.

Its a jeep. you have to keep in mind the frame, tub, brackets, axle.... you can just cut off whatever is in your way.
