JEEPSTER988 Most I've seen and mine is cut and mufflered before the rear axle. Every truck or jeep I've ever had is done like that.

randy and teri according to a local garage, pa just changed their inspection laws from being able to have a turn down spout to exhausts needing to exit the vehicle area. this is in regards to trucks but i cant imagine its any different for jeeps or other vehicles.

Ditto. If you do it just right, the tailpipe will actually not poke out as far as the gas tank skid plate, meaning it is pretty well protected. Here is a side photo (sorry--it's tough to see in the shadow):

The Ugly Jeep Cut mine off about an inch behind the hanger behind back tire, added a 90 to turn it out to the side.

Peepers Some states require the exhaust to exit behing the passenger compartment... Something about fumes and being bad for you... If your state has inspections, look into it before you just lop it off and put a shorty on it.

EdJonesJeeper Grass burner. I cut mine off behind the muffler and added a 45 deg downturn.

I never thought about the tailpipe

So when I was out wheelin this past weekend I bent my tailpipe while on a (more extreme) trail. I had to climb the rear up onto a stump so that I could stuff a bar into the tailpipe and give er' the ole heave ho to bend it back. I have the Rubicon Express 4.5" with 33X10.50X15 KM 2's. My question is this.... What are my other TJ brothers doing out there with their tailpipes after they bend them all up? my idea was to cut it off after the muffler and use the last 6 inches or so of the tailpipe (the pretty end) and reweld it to the muffler. I need the clearance clarence for when I'm articulating and don't want to deal with this nuissance again on the trail. Thoughts anyone?
P.S. the picture attached is the spot where I backed into ole mother earth and she claimed my tailpipe as her own!
