What are these?

ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1417367827.905848.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1417367847.061259.jpg

These are on each exhaust pipe, near the rear. I have a diesel, not sure if that makes a difference.

The odd thing is they are just on a bracket welded to the pipe. It doesn't appear to tap inside of pipe nor are there any wires or other physical connections to anything else.

Exhaust Damper, minimizes noise and vibration off your exhaust system.

Re: What are these?

GM used them all over the place to dampen vibration. Was a quick 100lb weight reduction for convertibles. Now greatly sought after by restorers. Search on "GM cocktail shakers".

Am surprised they were needed on a six.
