Side exit Exhaust fitted!

Always liked side exits so what could be better than 1 each side

Got the local exhaust shop to make up these bits.




Cut to size & fitted.




Ripped off after a quarry visit




Fitted again, this time welded!








Really makes the 4.0 sound angry

Kills ground clearance. You'll be ripping it off again.
My side exit is removable for that reason.

Nothing like completely killing ground clearance after blowing money on that lift.

I see you points but the box is only 5" in diameter and no lower than the standard box. The side pipes are close enough to the rear wheels not to be an issue with the terrain l drive on. I'm sure it'll get knocked about but no more than the original system did.

The exhaust itself didn't suffer any damage when knocked off. Didn't take much the clamp is crap lol. Should have just welded it in the first place!

Looks like there is some room under there. Could you pull the muffler up closer to the body and angle the tips down a little? Well could you have before it was welded?

^^ lol

Yeh l could have pulled the muffler closer to the body but then left side pipe hits the propshaft. For the small gain in clearance it would require paying someone to custom make the left pipe.

Good work man. Ignore these prissies with their panties in a twist. Your Jeep is yours and custom work makes it even more so.

I have seen much more egregious abominations that deserve ridicule. This does not.

i'm speaking from experience. mine is as close to the rear wheels as his is, if i don't pull it it will get smashed every single time i take her offroad. it's not a mod that's conducive to offroading.
