"muffler-back"

Is there a way to get the single pipe from the muffler back out as one peice? I really do not want to cut it. It keeps rattling on EVERYTHIG and nothing I do helps so I'm going to 90 it out the side at the muffler. But I want to keep it invade I decide to put it back on.

yes i did that with mine, one slice by the muffler

You'll need to jack the body up and get the axle to droop. Then pull and twist on it... it will be a serious PITA just so you know but itll work

I am scrambling to get things done this weeks (which explains my rthousand threads this week.) it's the last week that it is supposed to be nice for a while. Do I have to jack it up till the tires start to leave the ground? I had it jacked up in the rear when I changed my muffler and tried but gave up and just hooked t back up.

Jack up the body so the axle droops... giving you room to pull it

^ agree and you have to jack up the body real high where especially the right/rear tire's off the ground. I even had to put a couple 4"x4" pieces of wood under my small floor jack and a piece on top to get it that high. Just make sure you use jack stands. The whole tail/back pipe will come out the back in one piece and the end needs to be towards the driver's side. Good luck!

I just unbolted the trackbar on the passenger side and jacked the body up a little and it came out without any fuss.
