Side Exhaust pipes
 
CHROME PLATED DUAL SIDE PIPES - JCWhitney

anyone know anything about these,

i think it would be a great addition to my 1993 jeep YJ daily driver...?!

You've got to be kidding right? Even the 50"L ones would almost run fender flare to fender flare. By the time you get off the header and split you'd be doing pipe u-turns underneath to get back to the front of the side pipe.

my welder said he could make it happen... do i believe him but just hesitant to do it... just asking

Chrome side pipes aren't doing it for me.....but it's your rig.

NAVYCHIEF 10-07-2010 01:23 AM

they really look nice...........................ON THAT BLUE TRUCK:bottom:

I could see those lasting all of 20 minutes on my jeep....

If you like the way it looks do it. But if you can make a straight shot from headers to side pipes without having to turn around the exhaust dont do it. Ideally you want your exhaust to follow a path of least resistance... slowing and turning to make it out the side pipes is not that. Maybe you could mount them vertically like stacks? just a thought :D

I don't really care for the look of those...But it's your rig and you can do what you want to it. :cool:

Here is how I did my exhaust on my CJ:

First time you slide out wearing a pair of shorts and burn the back of your leg on one of them, you're going to be wishing you'd thought twice about them.

Ask me how I know this.

That and if you take it off road, they will be extremely susceptible to damage.

Just a couple of things to think about.

I have seen them on TJ's before and did not care for them very much. Those look good on the old Corvettes, and some racing cars, but not on Jeeps. But if you like it go for it. It has been done

Kate 10-07-2010 09:37 AM

Ok, here's a quick photo I found.
As you can see, they are out there.

Just remember, they get HOT!!!! It will peel skin in nano seconds.

And do you see the pipe hanging making the bend under there. It's not adding to ground clearance.
Also, ignore the claims in the add, I doubt this will do anything for performance or HP gains. Cosmetic only, though it probably will change the sound signature.

gotta be kiddin....right??????

NAVYCHIEF 10-07-2010 12:38 PM

looks like a double butt blister lookin for a place and time.:bottom:

skiidoorider14 10-07-2010 07:18 PM

Just trying to come up with some different ideas for my jeep... not a lot of money to spend too so any suggestions on a exhaust that would give it a nice deep tone to it... ive always had a louder exhaust on my cars including my trans am dodge ram and family 85 trans let me know... thanks.

whiteyj 10-07-2010 07:37 PM

Tuck a Flowmaster 40 series up in place of the stock muffler and call it good.

Clutch.93 10-09-2010 10:00 PM

dont do it, you will regret it, its not a good idea at all... more con's than pro's doing this mod...

FNjeep 10-09-2010 10:23 PM

That's a "Bumb Cheek Burner" photo of a mod if I've ever seen one.

The 'Woman' can handle my junk tender, but not X-tra crispy.

inedjep 10-09-2010 10:34 PM

Don't forget about the exhaust gases. They are right at your doors.

Kevinm2467 10-09-2010 10:39 PM

Please don't do it!!!!!

bck4more 10-09-2010 10:53 PM

NO FREAKING WAY. Dude people will be staring at your jeep all day long but its not because there thinking WOW thats nice.

Jeeper 10-10-2010 07:40 AM

I run stock exhaust with a turbo tube tucked away in my undercarriage to be clear of obstacles. I have a stock 4 but it has good sound.:)

Fweaky 10-10-2010 06:20 PM

I had those on a 73 Vette. I bet you could get some T-tops cut into your soft top too! :cool:

...don't do it!

NAVYCHIEF 10-10-2010 06:35 PM

how are the chicks gunna lean on yer door to shoot the breeze?:firedevil:

Tarby 10-10-2010 06:44 PM

wouldn't do it...I don't think a yj has the same clearances as a CJ. I have em on my '72 CJ5, but the frame is narrow and I have a AMC 304 V8, and it actually works good on it, but I don't think on a YJ it would be advisable. Here is mine on my CJ...it is pretty high and tucked up out of the way.

jeepin82 10-10-2010 08:26 PM

There all gonna laugh at you!! .....All kidding aside I thing those side pipes would be the worst thing you could put on a jeep. It would be like making a Ferrari automatic.

MkUltraOps 05-05-2014 01:29 PM

sidepipes would hit bottom when wheeling, not very smart, but its your rig
