Hi-Tuck Exhausts

Post by Joleat » Sat Mar 26, 2016 7:00 pm

I've been looking at aftermarket exhausts and it seems like most of them are geared toward mall crawlers (giant 5" dual tips, etc.). I'm interested in the hi-tuck catback from Pypes and was wondering if anyone else has one on their JK. I've ran Pypes exhaust on muscle cars in the past and have been pleased.

If i had the choice id take it to a muffler shop and pick out thr muffler i want then have new pipe ran. That way everying would be welded rather than clamped and they could tuck it up nice and tight
Beat it to fit. Paint it to match.

Step 1 - relocate your evap canister.

Step 2 - go to exhaust shop and have a muffler put in place where evap was and then run new tailpipe. I've got under $200 in mine from a local exhaust shop. It's as tucked as can be tucked.

I'm running MBRP offroad exhaust on my 2 door. It relocates the muffler and has a single dump that is tucked up and about as short as you would want. Not my first choice for sound and tone but was more concerned with relocating the muffler.


The are a few outa box kits from different manufacturers that relocate the muffler and offers plenty of clearance. MBRP is just one of them.

Depending on what muffler you run, it may not be necessary to relocate the evap canister. Im running a generic magnaflow from advanced auto right in between the evap canister and frame. Had the local muffler shop run a tail pipe that dumps just in front of the rear bumper. Theres about an inch of clearance to the frame and muffler and maybe just a little more to the muffler and evap canister. Everything tucks nicely just above the bottom of the frame
If your not crawlin, you must be mallin.

soon I hope. I just have to wait on a front driveshaft issue to get sorted out. Either having it exchanged for a correct length or they are gonna cover cost to have Champion re-tube it. So I should be ready in a week or 2. I have the TSLs on it already so just waiting on 4 wheel drive now.

I bought the Pypes Hi-Tuck exhaust a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to installing it this evening. I have under 30 miles on it, but so far so good. It has a nice deep rumble with no rasp. It's no V8, but it'll do. I wanted it more for functionality than sound anyway.
