CJ Side Exhaust

For those of you running the side pipes what is your setup and post a pic. I'm looking to clean my side pipes up. Posting here because I dot get many replies in the picture forum.

Is there a difference between fender well headers and regular headers and if so do they require extra mods

I made these from Chevy 350 Headman and LS1 manifolds. Then Jet hot coating and the mufflers are Hooker chrome side pipes.

I would love to go side exhaust if I could find something that looks like the 60's to mid 70's Vettes. $1100.00 for used covers? (link below)
Since my Pacestter "in frame" headers wasted 1.5 hours of grinding to fit the block, and still not sure they'll fit the frame...I may go side pipes.

BTW this is the cleanest, most uncluttered set I've seen yet. Bookmarked 'em. Actually I like the whole Jeep!

Thanks, I love the sound and the looks of the side pipes but I don't like the exhaust smell. I Hate to say but I might add small cats in front/ built into the Hooker pipes.

Some more bits of advice.
Since then I've replaced the rear pipe mount with springs. The mounts that came with developed a leak after about 2 weeks in the mountains. Too rigid exhaust and the soft motor mounts were the culprit.
Second, Chain both sides of motor, to limit it. Give it a half inch of travel. Check it after some wheeling. At first I did one side, that fixed the driver/torque side. The passenger/Compression braking side gasket still gave me a problem. Chained it and no more problems.
