bent my tail pipe

hey im brand new on the site as of today
but ive been reading the forums for a while today
i have a 2001 cherokee classic
my only mod right now is an OR-Fab front rock slider bumper
and i have a RE 3.5 lift waiting to be put on
anyway the point of this post is because i went out wheeling today with a buddie of mine
i was backing down off a hump i realized i couldent clear
while doing so i clipped my tail pipe, ripping it down and bending it
i was curiouse as to how harsh of a pinch would be required for me to replace the pipe
and if i have to replace it
if anyone knew a place to get a cheep stock tail pipe
i apreciate any feed back

Re: bent my tail pipe

You have a number of options.
Remove the old pipe and try an straighten it. - Usually futile
Cut the pipe short and add a down turn. - Possible fumes, noise.
Replace the pipe and cut off the downturn. I cut it back at an angle and far enough in so it does not catch next time, usually about 2" shorter.
Not much cheap out there. You could try Rockauto.

Re: bent my tail pipe

If you have an autozone near by ,the new tail pipe from the muffler back is about $25.

Re: bent my tail pipe

Just get one from advance or autozone where they are inexpensive and you can get it the next day.

Re: bent my tail pipe

id cut it off at the muffler add a small 90* turn and exit it in the rear wheel well area. only time i get fumes in the cab area is if I have the back hatch open and idle which is the same problem if you had a 100% stock system
