An afe y pipe will move the cross pipe behind the cross member and above the skid plate. They also sell an exhaust loop delete kit.

The most interesting thing to me, was how the tree stump jumped out of no where. Around here, tree stumps pretty much stay anchored to the ground, and don't move. But deer..... You have to watch for those.

I have one of these I just put in, the driveshafts are accessible, the trans pan (auto) however is not.

Have any good pics? I'd like to see some better angles of it if you get a chance.

I'd like to see that too. The problem I'm facing with my issue of the op is the front lip of the skid plate is bent completely back over the bolt to remove it. I read through the instructions for swapping to the poison spyder cross member, and it says to brace the transfer case before removing it. If I can't get it bent enough to get to the bolt to remove the skid, is cutting it out my only option?

JK aFe Y-Pipe

Hi brianjw,

I just installed the JK aFe Y-Pipe and loop delete. By looking at your picture I see that the y-pipe is either close to or touching the transfercase bolt. On my installation the pipe is touching the bolt and I get a rattling sound when I hit bumps and so on. I wanted to know if you are experiencing the same issue and if there was a fix you did to avoid this. Thanks.

Not to hijack - just wanted to share - it's the jumping out in front of you part that you have to watch out for and its not just trees - in my parking lot the light posts dart in front of you with no warning at all and NO ONE is immune....
