Clayton JK long arms and exhaust mod?

....all their instal page says is "exhaust mod required for this install."
Is anyone running this on a '12+ JKU that can tell me what mod is neccesary? I've seen some pics of the front and the crossover looks stock, just an aftermarket narrower drive shaft. Figure it's something to do with the rear, but looking at the parts, and my Jeep, I just can't figure it out?

If you don't run a smaller diameter DS. You'll need the exhaust spacers.
Nice kit BTW .. I looked at it at one time.

Thanks. It's only the LA and crossmember set. I'm using the AEV springs and tuned 5160's. No geometry brackets required.
So, It's all about the DS in the back? I'm running the JE Reel 1350's...they're significantly more narrow than the stock ones with the boots?

Coincidentally, I also considered this kit when I bought my Clayton adjustable CAs. I seem to recall it requires the spacer kit for the exhaust but they also recommend a replacement CV joint driveshaft. Things get pretty tight around the cross member.

Thanks guys. Any links to this spacer, or is it something I can just pick up at any decent shop? I'm welding on the brackets and crossmember on Monday, and just hoping to have my ducks in a row with this...Thanks again for the responses...

On the 2012+ models we use that AFE loop deleteon the driver side, and have done it two ways now for the passenger side. You can use a tera or BDS exhaust spacer kit which will space the cross over pipe in order to gain clearance between the driveshaft and the pipe itself. Since its simple for us to weld, in this last install we just welded in a short tube to gain the space we needed. Not really sure how in depth I can go on the driveshafts, and Im sure the guys at Tom Woods custom driveshafts can probably provide more information. But basically we have figured out what lengths work on each model, and transmission type. So if you order them from us you know they will work with our lift kits. There are a simple bolt in installation. Remove the factory flanges, and install the ones provided by Tom Woods. He sends new hardware and torque settings for the bolts. Once the flanges are installed, simply bolt on the 1310 CV style driveshafts and with our fully adjustable lift kits you can properly set the angles for this CV style driveshaft and you are all set. Our lift kit instructions are online under Tech, and this might also add some information you are looking for.

Thanks...again. That AFE pipe is probably the way to go for me then. Mines a '15. I think I see now that it's the up travel with this kit that's going to be the issue regarding the exhaust...specifically, the "bugle" loop. I'm at the end of my financial rainbow with this build at this point...not sure how many more "need this to do that's" I can take!
