I really dont want to run a turn down. I was quoted $150 for a new tail pipe custom routed to clear everything. Might as well go that route and avoid it being too loud.

Wow that's double what it cost me. I went to a small muffler shop known for quality work, good prices too it would seem.

Wow. Good to know. I'll shop around and see what else I can find. My first thought was that was pretty high but I haven't shopped for exhaust in a while.

I had everything from the cat back replaced and a flex joint put in the front for $125 . I have found exhaust shops will charge exactly what they think you can afford.

Seems like everyone around here is charging close to that G. $125-$150 seems to be the norm.

I wont be able to get it fixed before my Holy Cross run this weekend. It's bent down a good 6'' so I hope i dont hang it up on something and rip it off completely. It'll have to wait for a few weeks.

A little update. Ran Holy Cross this weekend and what an amazing trail. French Creek is no joke. Looks super easy on line but with the way the boulders are randomly placed and constantly moved makes for some tricky lines. Add in the wet tires and its even worse. I ended up getting very stuck. I slipped off my line and diffs landed on 2 huge rocks which left all 4 tires just hanging in the air. Broke out the winch and free'd the Jeep. Started to rain on us and we walked up to Cleveland Rock. That part of the trail is no joke. More pics to follow.

More pics

First obstacle on Holy Cross. Walked this unlocked.


Second obstacle. You have several lines here. The far right is easy. Middle is for the very steep and the far left is the tougher line which I walked. Lockers on here.


Third obstacle is French Creek. I'm coming up here. All looks well here. Then I slid off my line and planted the diffs.


And stuck


Started pulling cable.


Thats me standing on Cleveland Rock. This obstacle is just nuts. It was wet so we didn't even attempt it. Watched 2 buggies come down it.


Heading back down. A little short arm flex

You standing on Cleveland Rock gives a good perspective of its size

Hmm. Don't think my SWB TJ would stand a chance on Cleveland rock.

Stretch Jeep to 110" before Colorado trip, check.
