Anybody have a weird exhaust pipe spot?

I'm not sure where all your guys exhausts are, but when I bought mine, the guy put it on and had it bent short, he has it bent right out the passenger side in front of the tire. You can kind of tell from this picture here, right in front of the rear passenger tire:

Do you think I should keep that there, or should I buy a snorkel? I think those look kinda cool, I might put one on this summer. The way its set up now, it gives it a little bit more clearance.

A snorkel is for the intake.

If youre gonna be doing crawling or much offroading its not the best spot cause it could get crunched. But since youre stock it should probably be fine.

That's robbing you of quite a bit of ground clearance(not to mention aesthetics), I'd do one of two things - hack that junk off, and do a 90 degree turndown after the muffler, or get a proper tailpipe to run out the rear end like stock.

Plus, what about, in the summer months, someone going to get into your Jeep and hitting their ankle on the hot exhaust pipe? Pass.

Well this summer I plan on putting a lift on it and getting bigger tires. Should I just get a hole new tailpipe and exhaust to run back out the back? I have no idea why the previous owner did that. And by the way thats happened with my friends before Really scares them at first haha

I'd just run a 90 degree pipe directly off the muffler, just so long as the muffler is in the stock location.
