Been having problems with the rear exaust bracket on the 80. The problem is the pipe comes out just behind the rear wheel and angles down. When I drive over rocks the rear wheel goes over but the end of the exaust hits the rock because it is angled down and breaks the rear exaust mount (and sometimes the rest as well).
I was gonna just cut it off short in front of the droop but am worried that it might create fumes inside. Any suggestions short of a 4 inch spring kit, 2 inch body lift and 33 inch tyres?

We break exhaust mounts all the time I just wire them up with twitching wire and a Cobb & co hitch they would stay there forever but the boss puts a new mount on everytime the truck comes home. Cheers Rob

I had the same problem with my 4 runner - the squashed exhaust not the broken bracket -- i just shortened the pipe now still works fine -- no fumes in cabin and no more having to worry about rocks crushing the pipe closed

Hi Davoe. the low exhaust is as you say a bit of a problem. you may like to do a mod that I do to all my 80# that is bring the exhaust out through the rear bumper. the plastic bumper is easy to cut and you need to cut a small part of the metel liner away. Half hour plus a tinnie then its $50 at the exhaust shop
end of problem

I went down plenty of gullies/washouts around Mt hunt and come the end of the day it had been bashed up at least 2 inches. A bit of heavy wire and stainless cable ties to hold the pipe back up and its the best clearance I could ask for and I cant hear any rattling inside the car.
I am under the impression you will have fumes/blackened tailgate problems if the pipe terminates before the back of the car- I seem to recall that was yellow sticker material aswell. Mine is pretty much flush with the rear bar and its all good.
