it wont affect it a bit except for DRONE and the heat and exhaust fumes may melt something under there.(ask me how I know)

I had a brand new SRT Bumper all painted up nice and pretty. I put it on before I had the exhaust fixed and the exhaust fumes/heat....melted it. $900...down the drain.....

Yeah I wouldn't want to dissipate all that heat to anywhere except the side or the rear of the vehicle.

Ryan, What is the diameter of the reso??

My Flowmaster drone is driving me nuts on my 4.77 3".

If you are looking to get rid of it???

Thanks,

Ben

I had a 'wheeling buddy that cut the exhaust off his WJ just after the muffler - this was to fit a long arm suspension without re-working the exhaust. The modification directed the hot exhaust gases directly to his plastic gas tank. He ended up putting a hole in the tank which we fixed with an epoxy patch.

Your WK gas tank won't be in your way, but to be safe, get a $5 turn down.
