The Low Budget Sequel to "Tailpipe Fix - Part I"

I cut the stock tailpipe off about 3 inches after the last pipe hanger.  I purchased a 90 degree section of galvanized exhaust pipe that slips over the cut off exhaust pipe.  I also purchased a u-bolt exhaust clamp and chrome exhaust tip. $15.00 and I have something that looks great and never drags.



The new tailpipe exits in front of the rear bumper endcap, via a 90 bend 
The pipe is now away from the rear end, where it was vulnerable.
The new tube is well protected from trail abuse by the bumper



Editor's Note: Whenever you shorten a tailpipe, you run a higher risk of fumes entering the cabin. Always make sure there are no holes in the body where exhaust fumes could enter. Also be sure to keep hot exhaust pipes away from anything that could be compromised by heat, such as rubber lines, paint, etc.
