Need review on muffler/tailpipe job on 1991 Jeep wrangler

Well, last week, I cut off the old muffler and tailpipe because they were rusted beyond repair and installed a new muffler and tailpipe. I am now worried that I may have installed the tail pipe incorrect because I believe the tail pipe is supposed to go over the red circled bar in the picture but I installed it below it. There are no leaks, it does not interfere with any brake lines, I am able to move the vehicle perfectly, and it blows the exhaust away from the vehicle. I don't have a lot of time to take the assembly apart and re do it so I am wondering if my placement will harm my jeep or affect any aspect of the driving experience?

Yes, it's supposed to go over the track bar.
It won't hurt anything until you flex real nice and pinch it.

I don't plan on going off roading as much, I'm mainly using this jeep for commuting and commuting in bad weather. Will It possibly pinch it from driving it commuting?

I highly doubt it unless you hit some crazy speed bump or dip in the road.

A couple passengers or a load and one speed bump and that pipe will get crushed. There is a reason the stock part has a big inverted U shape back there. Why didn't you just get the correct part to put in? Besides it being a pain to get in if you aren't on a hoist?

Ya know that big tube right under the new exhaust pipe? That's your axle. It moves up and down. It will undo your installation for you if you don't correct it first.
