DynoMax X Muffler issue
 
**will get pics by this weekend**

Anyone ever heard of a DynoMax X muffler getting a "blow-out"?!?! Well I took my rig for a cruise yeaterday (for the first time in three weeks) and after returning her to her parking spot, my frined says "Hey you got a feather or something hanging from underneath." First thing I think is something was sleeping underneath and I killed it, lol. So I kneel down only to find a nice 2" diameter hole on the bottom-side of my DynoMax X muffler!! :eek: WTF?!!? And all the "insulation" is hanging out of it looking like a feather duster :( The only issue I ever had was the muffler was rattling like a baffle broke loose; now a hole "broke loose" :( :(

Any advise on this??!!?? I am goonna call Summit (where I ordered from) to get the number for the DynoMax customer service department and pray for a free replacement.

Mario had a issue with the fiberglass blowing out, not because of a hole in the muffler, just that it got loose and made its way out through the exhaust. He called them up and they sent a new one right out. And he wasn't the first owner of it (the vehicle came with a Dynomax muffler on it).

Yeah I am hoping they will replace it. I know when I first put it on, there was a lot of fiberglass blowing out the exhaust and all over my hatch window :( And now this :( :(

What does the metal around the hole look like? Is it flared outwards like something came out of the muffler or inwards like something went into it? Maybe you drove over something that bounced up and put the hole there.

It looks like the metal literally gave out; kinda like it was cut out (but not very clean cut or straight, lol). It reminds me of a blow out. Nothing was scraped, caught, bumped, or went into it...

That's the odd part...it isn't much louder :confused: Looks really stupid sitting in the driveway with a feather duster looking thing hanging from underneath her. :(
