    Tail pipe help

    I'm in the process of changing the exhaust from the manifold back. It's proving to be a bitch of a job but not overly impossible.

    I hit my biggest snag yesterday. Routing the tail pipe. I've tried from back to front, front to back and dropping the suspension. Anyone done it and if so, what's the trick? I've heard dropping the gas tank and pulling the track bar but those don't appeal to me. I'm thinking about taking off the tires and releasing the sway bar links.

    My other option is to get everything sealed up and drive it to a muffler shop who said they can install the pipe and weld the seams for $20-$45. I'm really liking that option. My goal was to do it myself but I'm satisfied I tackled and survived the hardest parts.

    $20 to $45 seems like a bargain for the work it sounds like it would take
    Hands up, Don't shoot!

    Yeah....for that little cash, just take it to the shop. It will save you a lot of hassle. We ended up doing that with Scott's Jeep when doing exhaust and the RK 3 link kit at the same time.

    Yeah....you can spend hours and days in the shop trying to work it yourself so you can say you did it, but at the end I promise you you'll be saying, "Fuck, I wish I'd just taken it to that shop."

    If your changing it all why not just cut it out in small sections?

    That's what I did taking it out. Putting the new one in is proving to be a bitch.

    As me and my buddy were doing the intake and exhaust manifolds we determined there were 4 P's that need to be followed:

    Patience
    Pain
    Profanity
    And finally Phhhhhucccccckkkkk it.

    I've used up all my profanity, had my fair share of pain my patience is used up so I'm on the last one.

    My only hope is I don't have leaks in the intake and it cranks up.
