Being I have a ZJ I don't know if this is what yours looks like.

Try looking for rear main seal replacement instructions, you have to drop the pan to do that. There are a few write ups on doing that.

Nope... didn't help. Thanks though. I do have a RMS write up from daily driven TJ. But it doesn't tell how to remove the exhaust.

Do you need to remove the manifold and down tube or just the down tube?

The manifold can stay, but everything past it needs to move. At least to the muffler. I think I'm going to rent a sawzall and then just have the shop weld it back on.

Did you get apart at the manifold flange? There should also be a hanger  somewhere between the muffler and exhaust tip you will probably have to unbolt. You might have to use a strap or something to hold it out of the way.

Yes, I got it off the flange, I can unbolt it from the frame, that might be easier than trying to take it apart piece by piece and just unbolt the entire thing haha. I'll do that tomorrow. Just have to have the Jeep ready by the 26th.

Honestly, when we had to mess with the exhaust, we just cut it off and had a muffler shop re-weld it on, it was way easier than messing with unbolting stuff, way faster, and way cheap to get it fixed.

Most Exhaust systems are held in place by a rubber grommet and just need to be pried off the hanger with a big screw driver. To remove the system from my yj with out cutting it i have to drop my tranny cross member. If you were closer i would offer to help. I have a sawzall and a welder to put it back lol.

If you do end up cutting it dont just have it welded back on have them put in a bolt in flange that way if you even need to remove it at a later date you can just unbolt it. Shops around here only charge like ~$35 to do something like that.

Cutting it wouldn't be faster since I don't have access to a sawzall, so I would have to pay to rent one and pay to have it welded back on. Both of which I'm not looking forward to due to money issues. They problem with the shop here is they charge like $80 for half an hour of work if even that. I'll try getting the grommet out and if not I'll just unbolt the entire thing. I'll try a bit later in the day and report back.

Do you have to completly remove the exhaust? You can't finagle the pan off around it?

What??? If your muffler shop is going to charge you up the wazoo for re-welding an exhaust, then it's time to find a new muffler shop. It took the guys at the muffler shop I go to like 5 minutes to get mine welded back up, they charged us like $30 bucks.

The cross bar that holds the tranny up. If you pull it you have to put a jack under the tranny to keep it up.



It's the black rectangular tube running between the fram rails between the tranny and the transfer case. Yours probably looks different then this one but should be in the same spot.
