|help-slip-franklin||Thanks all, and BJ your previous post was great. Ended up taking the track bar out and based on some of the posts I found here, I am leaving it out! The new exhaust is in (without the cat), while not a perfect replacement fit, I think it will be just fine.|

|help-slip-franklin||1994 YJ. I am at a total roadblock on the tailpipe re-install. I've teased, squeezed, cursed and thrown things and I can't get the replacement in there! Tried back to front, front the back, tire off and thread it in from the side, and every other possible way to twist a pre-bent pipe known to man. Is there a video somewhere? I need step by step instructions on this, it is driving me crazy! Thanks|

AAhhhhh the tire off and sliding it in that way sounds like a good idea. I had it jacked up at the axle so that was why I didn't clear the trac bar. I almost tried removing the trac bar - and am very glad I didn't - it looked permanent.
I'll jack it on the frame and let the axle droop, and do the wheel if it is still tough to get in there.
Thanks all....now I won;t have to figure out how to turn the Jeep upside down to get this done!

I just replaced my tailpipe this weekend and the absolute easiest way to do it is to take the tire off. I had the tailpipe in place literally w/in 2 minutes. It took longer to get the tire off than to get the tailpipe threaded into place.

|jpdocdave||^ yep, don't jack it up by the axle, support it by the frame so the axle sags. shouldn't have to remove anything|

|Jman062006||put it on jackstands and let the suspension droop that should help make room. Or you could drop the rear trac bar if its easy for you.|

Replacing the cat/muffler/tailpipe on my 95 Jeep. Cat and muffler went on in minutes. But I couldn't get the tailpipe threaded over the axle and suspension parts to connect it to the back of the muffler.
Did i not jack the jeep up high enough?
Going to go at it again tonight, and wondering if there are any tricks to this.
Thanks for the help.
