If you are a real cheapskate you can also cut up and reuse old exhaust pipes, pie-cutting bends and cutting angles to cobble something together that might just work to fix your exhaust after a new skidplate or drivetrain swap. If you live by a custom exhaust shop you can also beg, buy, or steal pieces of exhaust that they have discarded. Sometimes a shop will mess up a bend and have to start over, and the part that is junk to them may be just what you need. Lastly, if you have a pal with a tubing bender for bumpers, rollcages, and general fabrication, you can always bend up a super heavy-duty exhaust out of welded-seam 0.095- or 0.120-wall tubing. Only expensive benders will bend thin exhaust tubing without flattening or otherwise deforming it as shown on the bottom. You can pack the thin-wall exhaust pipe with sand and see if that works. We don’t have time for that.
