I give up

I've been battling an issue with a fuel problem on my Jeep for several days now and have had zero success. So I've decided to spend my day off today changing my exhaust and doing a mod that makes me happy instead of continuing to beat my head into the wall.

Here is my stock before pic and the new exhaust laid out ready for assembly.

So far it's not going well. Looks like someone welded my skid plate to the bottom of the Jeep after they broke the normal mounting bolts. Oh well, that's why God invented pneumatic grinding wheels.

Looks like someone was dead set on keeping it there! You should be able to grind those welds off no problem. I'm slightly worried about messing with my exhaust for similar reasons. The previous owner of my jeep was DIY/custom obsessed. It will all work out for the better tho!

Well I guess all the times I sprayed on brake free over the course of the morning paid off because removing the exhaust bolts was super easy. The hangers came off fairly easy too, I just sprayed on some silicone garage door opener lube and they popped right out. I'm currently waiting on my brother to get back from the store with a sawzall because I can't fish the exhaust out from all the bends.

Overall pretty pleased with how easy this is going. 4wheelParts wanted $150 for labor, I'm glad I chose to tackle it myself... So far anyway.

Finished!! I love my new Banks exhaust. I don't care that it doesn't improve HP, the look over the tiny rusty stock pipe and the deeper sound is well worth it. And so far no drone.

Happiest man alive!!!!!!

So I did some more reading after finishing my exhaust today and I decided to try checking the connections on my PCM/ECM. All I did was imply the three large plugs on the passenger side of the firewall and plug them back in and BOOM,
My Jeep is fixed. No smoke, no misfire... Running better than it's ever run before.

What a huge stress relief!!!!

You installed the headers yourself?
