Between the control arms and our GenRight Off-Road 30-plus-gallon gas tank, we just couldn’t see how it would be possible to get the exhaust to exit in the factory location. Turns out it is just as much art and patience as it is experience and good welding skills. The pipe hangs down further than we’d like, but it is higher than the skidplate when viewed from the side. Also, the lower control arm immediately adjacent hangs lower than the exhaust does, but we’ll still have to be careful about getting rocks up there. All in all, it is worth it to us to have the exhaust exit in the rear.
