I have fenderwell headers with purple horny sidepipes. Not good for rocks or hardcore wheelers, but thats not what my jeep encounters so it is fine for me.




Not the greatest pics, heres a sound clip as well:

Here's my setup. I love the easy access, and it is a cheaper way to go. As i've said before, it's louder than a stock Harley but quieter than a Harley with straight pipes.I can post pics of the mounting if you're interested

I just got my exhaust re-worked.

I had a standard manifold, but the PO had run the pipe up under the frame and out where these fenderwell exhausts normally go. That meant that part of the exhaust pipe was just waiting to be crushed against the frame.

Also, my engine is not exactly "tuned," so I smelled like a weed-eater after riding. Other people wouldn't ride in my Jeep due to the exhaust fumes. That's not good.

So I was going to move it to two-into-one out to the driver's side of the fuel tank, but when I got back to the exhaust shop, he had managed to run true duals on either side of the fuel tank.

Con: The exhaust pipes are only 1 1/2" or 2" pipe, so they look really wimpy. But, I just painted them black so you can't see them, and it actually sounds pretty good.

If I were going for real dual exhaust sound, I'd get 3" pipe run to turn downs just at the rear axle.

Depending on your wheelin type and how bad you might get into the rocks, I would go back to the inside frame and go dual over the crossmember. I have seen a few guys who create a y - pipe and then just one ceneter pipe and muffler and then redual it out at the tail section by the tank.

Tetanus,
I wasn't sure if you were asking me or BLS33, but here's how mine is mounted.

I lost a good deal of my hearing running side pipes back in the '80s. Well, that and shooting 44 mag & 45 acp with no ear protection.

I run in-frame headers with dual exhaust through dual Flowmaster 40's. They exit out the sides behind the rear tires. Had the exhaust custom done at a local Shell Station so it was not that expensive and it's all welded. Not too loud since it exits in the back, but loud enough when I want it to be . At highway cruising speeds my softtop is more noisy than the exhaust.

This is not mine but a picture I copied from an E-bay listing to use as a reference. It looks pretty close to mine except I have headers. It is pretty tight around the gas tank but I went with 2 1/4" pipe to allow a bit more room:

For me, a Jeep with a V-8 need to have fenderwell headers and side pipes.
