rokmen tummy tuck now exhaust hits.

installed tummy tuck, very straightforward. nice skid to. Now the exhaust is hitting on the front passenger side upper control arm bracket. I have searched all over the forum and google and cant find anything on how people are getting the clearance. a writeup would be great. Ive tried bending the exhaust bracket with a big prybar but it wont budge. thanks in advance for the help.

Not sure what you were searching with, but whatever it was, it sucked.

Straight from the Rokmen website:

What about exhaust clearance near the upper passenger control arm?
This is common with all high clearance belly pans - Your jeep may require minor modification of the exhaust near the front passenger upper control arm for clearance. We have seen vehicles that have not required this, and ones that have. A quick trip to an exhaust shop after installation or sometimes just modification to the exhaust bracket (lowering it by 5/8") has provided the required clearance with no need for further modification.

Call anyone at rokmen and they will be more than happy to explain several ways to fix you issue. I had the same problem with mine, and ended up just taking it to an exhaust shop for $60. Rokmen -- 303-907-6303

Where are you hitting the exhaust to move it over? The hanger at the transmision mount

I can pull the exhaust down and also towards the drivers side to make space. So, I know it should be an easy fix. The exhaust shop I went too didn't want to mess with cutting a small section out in front of the oil pan and rewelding. They were adamant that it wouldn't work which I disagreed with highly.

I'd actually like to avoid exhaust shops because they all want me to leave the jeep there for the day which isn't convenient at all for me.

Measure, cut, drill, reassemble.



You want to drop the exhaust the amount you raised it up so it's back to 'neutral.'

EDIT: Damnit Skinum, really? The thread is 2 years old.

I just dropped the transfer case skid. Pulled the transmission mount bracket off then took a hammer and bent the bracket over towards the transmission . Then remounted everything and all is good.

Cut the cat converter hanger in between he 2 hole. Line those 2 holes up and run a bolt and nut through the holes.

X2.

You can also enlarge the holes to 1/2" and use a 3/8" bolt to give a little fine adjustment.
