After installing my UCF skid, my CAT was being pushed up by the skids inner brace. This was causing CAT to being crushed between the skid and tub. At first it wasn't that big of a deal but the vibes got old quick!!!!!!
Once I got to the parts store, I ended up buying parts to build a total new exhaust. Including a Cherry Bomb Glasspack for 30 bucks. For the price, I figured I'd try it out. Plus, it was much smaller than my old factory muffler and less likely to get hit on rocks.
The plan was: the CAT will be moved forward right before the skid, add a smaller bullet style muffler under the skid and a dump right were the rear control arm bracket is.
I used clamps for most of the tube connections but ended up having someone weld the dump to the muffler. We ran out of adapters and didn't want to go to the store. The stock hangers were recycled and welded to the frame.
With the new smaller muffler under the skid. I have a huge empty space where the muffler used to be and no chance of exhaust damage.
We were all very pleased with the inexpensive Cherry Bomb Mufflers sound on my I6. Best of all this mod cost less than 60 bucks.
I still need to paint but here's some pics.
