Dumped exhaust

Can I hear some pros and cons on dumping the exhaust. I recently had a flow master 40 series installed with just a small pipe coming off of it. Sounded real good. But my dad one was using it and went to the muffler shop to get a piece of pipe put on it so it would run to the end.of the jeep!

What is your goal here? Are you trying to get arguments you can use with your father to justify removing the pipe he had put on?

Lol no! It's my vehicle. He was using it for a week and I guess he just got annoyed while driving it. Just seeing if any jeep owners have any thoughts on performance or issues that it might cause.

It's your vehicle and he just decides to modify the exhaust for the heck of it? Interesting relationship you guys have. Who owns it? Maybe I should say who bought it and pays the insurance?

Performance issues? Not really.
Irritation factor? It's probably less irritating for other people now.
Safety? Depends on where the end of the exhaust was before and where it is now.

The questions you are asking do not matter.

They really do matter.

If the vehicle actually belongs to your father, he can do with it what he wants and you are just looking for a way to change his mind.

If the vehicle actually belongs to you, why is he modifying it? I would really have been pissed if I loaned my vehicle to my father and he did something like this to it without my permission.

Somehow I think this is all you hear when your father talks to you about his Jeep.

You aren't listening well. If you look at the second part of my post #6 you will see about all that can be said in response to your question about the exhaust change. Maybe a little more clarification will help. Dumping the exhaust under the rig can cause some serious droning noise inside the cabin and can cause exhaust fumes to enter the cabin as well. Moving the exhaust further back will help get rid of both of these problems. It really doesn't affect performance. If the end of the exhaust is poorly placed too close to the fuel tank it can be a potential fire problem.

Good luck with Dad.

Not that you'll listen, but people who ride in your dad's Jeep will appreciate not smelling like exhaust every time they ride with you. Even if you can't tell, everyone else will know you've been driving the Jeep with the exhaust dumped under the vehicle.
