Front Drive Shaft Rubbing

Newbie here. Purchased my 1983 CJ7 about a month ago. While poking around underneath, it looks like the front drive shaft is rubbing against the exhaust.

I think this is bad. Any advice?

Thanks in advance.

Take it to an exhaust shop and have them build a new cross over that goes over the drive line. Or, get a BFH and clearance the exhaust pipe.

Is an exhaust shop expensive?


Does "clearance" mean "remove" or gently bang it away from the shaft?

Thanks.

With the use of the term BFH (big F'n hammer), clearance means hit it hard with said tool until it doesn't rub any longer.
