exhaust skid plate or low profile exhaust?

My tailpipe got smashed and and there is a nice dent in the exhaust

I'm pretty sure i can salvage the tailpipe by opening it up with some elbow grease, question is if I should get a new exhaust or get a skid?

Was looking at the dynomax rock crawler or the aFe high tuck

Any suggestions?

I like and am going to soon install the dynomax. Gives you a nice view of your babies underside

I too am thinking of going the dynomax route. It helps that they are having a rebate going on right now as well.

I went the Dynomax route. I loathed seeing that huge can under the rear, and a skid would have just added unwanted weight. It would protect the stock muffler, but the unsightliness would still be present. If you want quiet though, skid the stock muffler. I wanted a little more growl, some weight savings, and a clean look in the rear.

I skidded. With the soft top, soft doors and no back seat, weight isn't an issue for me. Even with all of the skids I've added lately, I've probably barely offset the removal of the 90-pound back seat. I like the quiet stock exhaust...couldn't find any high-clearance exhausts that sounded decent.

Back before they had a kit a buddy of mine helped me with rigging up a dynomax. Made a video a while ago:
