: properly installing the JT 3 inch exhaust

The exhaust came in!
everything went together smoothly up until I busted off the hanger... MEH!
everything lines up perfectly minus my tip which rests on my real valence!!
has anyone run into an issue like this? I've run out of ideas on how to line it up... its been only 1 hour and I cant stand the tip to bumper rattle

oh yeah... ive got lefto over screws and a bracket that i have no idea what to do with.

bend the hangars so it angles a bit more

The rubber isolator and bracket make a new mount just in front of the left axle mount.

Getting it aligned just takes some care.

i had the same problem with the tip at first to. if you loosen the clamps for the tip and the rear section of the exhaust you can adjust where the tip lays by both points. then i cut a couple inches off the tip cause it hung out to far for my taste. try tilting the muffler a little then spin the tip till its perfect.

Rubber cotton reel under the sill is essential. Mine came without one and it hung awkwardly and rattled like a good-un.

Once that's on you can loosen the rear section clamps and tweak it as Sweed says.

I also cut a good inch off the tailpipe.
