Fenderwell Headers to Front of Rear Tire Muffler Hangers

How do you guys secure your mufflers that exit just in front of the rear tires?

Photos would be a huge help if possible.

Thanks,

SC

I used Supertrapp mufflers without any hangers, but they don't weigh as much as a full size muffler. I haven't had any issues yet and have banged them a time or to, but I don't rock crawl. Not many rocks in south Alabama.

I used a hanger from the side of the frame.

hanger welded to the pipe, straight up and bolted to the fender well. The odd fire V6 was so loud right there, so I dumped it out the back. Much better sound too.

I used a heavy duty hanger and a large tube clamp and bolted it to the body mount bracket below the door. I will eventually change out the clamp with an exhaust clamp.

The mufflers are Thrush Hush mufflers and the pipes are Jegs 2 1/2 inch turnout pipes. I paid $150 for all of it to include the brackets. Sounds very good. I had Purple Hornie glasspacks on it originally and itwas way too loud.

Just a follow up with what I came up with...

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/da...l#post15241248

The Flowmaster Delta 50's are HUGELY LOUD! I can't even think what the 40's series is like...

Funny thing is I have the 50's series on my Hummer and it sounds perfect, but on my CJ you can hear me coming from a mile away...Don't get me wrong...it's fun but damn car alarms are going off left and right when I drive by...

Looking at the Thrush Hush Super Turbos in the same set up. Anyone want a pair of Flowmaster Delta 50's for a good price...
