So recently my exhaust started banging on my skid at low rpms. It's really annoying. So at low rpms the exhaust pipe shakes up and down quite a bit, hitting the skid plate repeatedly. No hangers are broken. Anyone else have this problem and any solutions to it?

Mine did that when a muffler weld broke/tore between the muffler and cat. If all the welds are solid, you can modify the hangers to gain some clearance.

Mine banged on the rear of the UCF skid at idle in gear(auto). I could see where it was hitting on the rear of the skid. I just cut a little notch in the skid and problem solved.

Also check for rocks that might have flipped up.
This Happened to my FX4 Ranger once. some semi big rocks got up between the skid/frame and the exhaust pipe and was just close enough to make a serious rattle at some RPM's

Check to see if the rubber isolator in the hanger above the skid is still intact.
