2002 Jeep TJ- Any tips on removing muffler flange bolts without lowering skid plate? I need to replace muffler and I was thinking of using a 20” extension with a U joint socket and 15mm deep socket and feed it through from the front above the skid plate. Any other suggestions that people have used?
I don’t want to lower the skid plate if at all possible because I have stripped nut—serts in the past and would rather have my fingernails ripped out by a sloth.
thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Why not?!
Give it a try! If you can't reach, add another extension.
Worse case is you have to drop the skip plate, but if it works out with the extension(s)... Bonus!

I was lucky. I did not have to drop my plate.
The PO installed a body lift. I cut the whole system out on either side of the plate, but the body lift did make it easier for the install.
