Need part identified so I can order (bracket to hold up exhaust)

My exhaust is rattling on the skid plate....grrrrrrr

Found the issue but I cannot identify the part in order to buy it.

It looks like a bracket to hold the exhaust up via a u bolt, it's toward the rear before the muffler. It is rubber and one side as snapped, thus letting the exhaust sag very low.


I attached some pics to help you guys.

You should be able to find generic rubbers like that in AutoZone, Advance Auto, or any of the big chains.

twisted up wire coat hanger always works for an exhaust hanger in a pinch also but I would just get the right parts from any auto parts store like mentioned above.

I just looked at the pic again. The METAL snapped, not the rubber. Coat hanger will give you a quick and probably long lasting fix. =)

Am I missing something? I don't see anything broken. Slip metal hook back thru rubber isolator. Done.

Is something broken I can't see? Are you able to photo/show what is actually broken?

Not broken. Loop it thru the rubber holder like the one behind it.

The rubber has a slit line down the bottom under the hole, you cannot see it in the pic unless I open it, but it's done.


I will take it off, run it down to Autozone and see if they can fix me up with another rubber isolator of some sort if it's that common.

Ah... looking closely at the second pic shows a line that suggests a split. Any auto store or muffler shop should have something similar that would work perfectly, just like stated above.

Thanks for the help guys. Got a new one at Autozone and got it on the Jeep last night. I cut the old one off to make it easier to remove. To install the new one I put one end on the u-bolt, jacked up the muffler (using a small block of wood in between not to damage it) and slid/hammered the other end of the insulator to the male end of the steel bracket/mount.

Was not that bad, other than NC summer heat in the garage......haha

We can mark this one as resolved. Thanks again for the part ID help.

I suppose it would have been more helpful to have posted this up earlier, but just got this photo this weekend. Turns out one of mine was broken on another vehicle. Got this at Checker's/O'Reilley.
