Putting on my lift kit.

My ZJ has a custom piped 44 flow master exhaust. As I prepare to lift my jeep i am wondering if this would be an issue or not. Would these pipes get in the way at all?

did you make fake dual exhaust? lol

when you change he angle of he arms and axles, it could makes it hit.



For the love of god remove that exhaust system. You are making all of the zj owners look bad...

Its a 5.2L V8, sounds great with the flowmaster on it. I didnt ask for the hate im asking if it will need to be modified so the lift kit can be installed.

I'm think you will have to modify it.

Well with 3.5" of lift you'll get yourself back to stock clearance there. I suggest fabbing a mini skid and putting it under the exhaust so it doen't get hit.

Wait until the lift is on to see where it hits. Fix it after you know for certain.

and it looks like you should have the clearance over the axle to be in good shape
