Where to buy 3 inch tailpipe?

I asked my local shop if they could bend and weld a 3 inch tailpipe for me and he said its "cutting it close" and wont do it because of safety reasons. He will weld a 3 inch tailpipe on for me if I buy it from somewhere else. Does anyone know where I can get a 3 inch tailpipe for a 97 GC?

LMFAO...
Need a NEW muffler shop, he's an idiot. His liability is exactly the same if he welds on someone else's or makes the pipe.

Reality is he isn't competent to make a bend that has to be exact. Again, find someone else.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

Call and see if you can get just the tailpipe as a replacement part.

Its not a muffler shop, more like a repair shop. But he can weld it for waay cheaper than anywhere else

Any muffler shop should be able to sell you a section of 3" pipe either aluminized or stainless. 3" is common in diesel p/u applications.

PM me if you'd like a mandrel bent 3" tailpipe. I make them as part of my Kolak Exhaust setup but I will sell it separately if you've already got a 3" muffler and high flow converter.

can't already asked about it since i don't like that muffler.

kolak or summit are the only ones i know of that have them readily available. i heard that magnaflow or flowmaster had one if you'd call them up about it.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

will they sell you a 3" straight section of pipe? of course. good luck getting them to bend it to fit the grand cherokee. had a few shops tell me they don't carry 3" and none would even attempt to bend it for the grand. "not enough clearance" even after showing them 2 examples of off the shelf 3" tailpipes.

Did you take over the thread from Jeepguy98?


Jeepguy,

If you know how to talk to shop guys, they'll do damn near anything. If you piss them off, they won't give you the time of day using your watch.

Bend up some Tig filler wire (Get it from your shop pal) into the shape you need and take it to the exhaust shop. Try not to piss them off and they'll bend it for you. (Leave enough excess on both ends to ease the fitment.

Since they're trying to make a living fabricating exhaust systems, try to explain that you need the pipe to do something that their company won't allow them to do or that you're too broke to afford a shop to do the whole deal.

Good luck.

Flowmaster will sell only the tailpipe, but its 2.5". The price is nice at under $40 tho. I've got their kit in both my ZJs, and everything is a perfect fit and the sound is purdy.
