Trying to fit new tail pipe

I am trying to get in a new tail pipe and I cannot move it back far enough to get it in the muffler because it hits a bar which is connected from the frame to the opposite side on the axle. Do I have to remove this or am I not seeing something? Do I even need this bar? is this an antisway bar? If I take it off will I stray all over the road?

Thanks for the help

Sounds to me like you are hitting the Track bar. There are different opinions on whether you need this or not, I removed mine when I installed my lift and never noticed it was gone. Keep in mind that I also drive around completely disconnected too! I say remove the track bar. Option #2 would be to remove the muffler and slide the bar in that way.

I purchased a Black Cat tail pipe and muffler . It was tricky to install the tail pipe over the track bar .
I had to raise the Jeep until the rear wheels were off the ground (that cause the track bar to drop a little)
Then I had to feed the tail pipe from the driver side over the track bar then slide the pipe into position.
It took a few tries until I was able to get it in place.
Make sure you insert the tail pipe far enough into the muffler to clear the track bar (not much room)

Note- if you have new shackles bolts for you springs MAKE SURE THE BOLT HEAD IS ON THE INSIDE! (If the threaded end is inside it will hit the tail pipe)

I do a lot of highway driving so I kept the track bar on. (Good for sudden turns and uninspected stops) keeps the Jeep from being top heavy! But not so good when 4 wheeling! Itís your call!

Run the passenger side only up a ramp(or Jack up the driver's side using the frame and jackstands as high as needed)
