You said Ideas----this was the idea for mine.

This was my 1977 CJ-5 w/ 304 and the pipes coming out of the sides.

This is the way I bought it in Savannah, GA for $2500 in '81

(I've had 6 other CJs w/258s ever since.)

This pic is my 1st Jeep.

Everyone I "visited" always said they loved the sound!

They were not constantly with this puppy as I was.

The inability to hear my radio wide open or hollering back and forth to a passenger got old quick.

It was hit by a semi and totaled before I modified the exhaust "My Way"

I was going to kick each side out of the back and turn them outward behind the rear wheels, an inch or so past the face of the wheels.

This would keep the exhaust from being sucked in/ rolling into the back of the Jeep (anti-choking the crew inside) and blow the noise out each side to keep the racket down.

MY IDEAs-----you are gonna do what you want with yours, I'm just explaining what you might end up with! Might be that you are already deaf!

In this picture (one of the few I have of this jeep) you can just barely see the exhaust coming out behind the step and in front of the rear tire. The jeep sounded great but I didn't have a radio in the jeep. I'm sure it would have made listening very difficult.

By the way that exhaust on my first CJ (the white one above) was bought in the late 80's from JC Whittney for $99 complete lol

I put a set of Cherry Bombs on mine. Think $60 a side. Bolt right on.

I had a 76 CJ-5 with 304 and ran Cyclone header with side exhausts cutting out if front of the rear wheels. The floor under the front seats would get hot from the header/ muffler under the floor. One day I was driving up a mountain road and heard a strange hissing sound. Turns out a can of puncture sealer I kept under the driver's seat blew from the heat. Also on a CJ-5, a body mount was in the way for ideal muffler positioning so the mufflers were mounted at an angle to clear the body mount.

Are you looking for actual sidepipes or a set of nice mufflers/glass packs?
Most fenderwell headers tuck under the body, so for actual sidepipes, some jogging of the piping will be necessary.
Another option is a set of fake lake pipes that will mount under the body and cover the actual exhaust.

Paperwork will ruin any military force.

Well more i read the less likely i want side pipes. I described the noise level to an exhaust mech and he said to look into flo-pro twister. Has anyone tried or heard them?

My ‘5 had fender well headers and side pipes when I bought it. Very loud and smelly. All that stuff went in the scrap metal pile.

Like others have mentioned, my experience was also one I wouldnít repeat. 1977 CJ-7 Golden Eagle I bought used in 1985. Sure they sounded great (loud), by the pros donít outweigh the cons. Need to cut the fender wells, the headers rust out, they smell, there is tremendous heat at your feet, you burn your leg on the cherrybomb muffler getting in or out. Honestly, there are no pros. Donít do it.
