    Exhaust spacer question...

    Hi guys/gals.

    With 37s, 4" of lift, and Adams front/rear driveshafts would exhaust spacers be needed for flexing out on the trails?

    Thanks

    A spacer that’s installed between the flanges to move the crossover pipe rearward for extra clearance for the driveshaft.

    There is no spacer needed if you got new driveshafts. The spacer are used because the fat factory drive shaft with a boot. The exhaust pipe cuts the boot and the joint goes dry and fails. You are all good.

    Resurrecting an old thread while I wait for my exhaust to cool off.

    I just installed a new T-case seal and in order to do this I removed the aFe y-pipe I installed. I have wanted to put my stock Y-pipe back in. Before I reinstalled the whole exhaust I disco'd the front and jacked up the jeep from the T-case crossmember to get the front axle to droop. Before I even hit that point my 1310 front drive shaft was resting on the crossover pipe. I know I should be fine but with this contact it had me concerned. Has anyone else had this issue with an aftermarket driveshaft?

    Edit: Actually after looking at the stock pipe closer it'll block the manual trans drain plug so for the sake of more convenient maintenance I'm reinstalling the aFe y-pipe. I figure I'll be changing the trans oil more frequently than T-case seals..haha.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
