? about exhaust on a cj-5

I'm going to be installing inframe headman headers, and want to know if anyone ever did this on a cj-5 with a 304. Did you have the exhaust custom bent, or is there a kit that is sold.

Thanks.

Keith

Re: ? about exhaust on a cj-5

I have a '76 CJ5 w/304 and inframe headers. I drove it with open headers to a shop because the passenger side needed a bend in it to get by. The driver's side used straight pipe. I then put on some glasspacks.

I did the same (CJ5,360,T18a/D20) Heddmans fit good, heat paint sucks, but the fit was okay, watch the clearance for the clutch linkage. I think I shaved the top flange on the collector to help clear. Straight pipe on the drivers side and had to bend to clear the D20 on the passenger. Then glasspacks and tail pipe. ADVICE: have the tail pipes exit the Jeep on the SIDE after the tires. Mine are rear and the ehaust backwash sends the stink into the Jeep.

Pics of my passenger side exhaust from header to glasspack. In the first picture you can see actually see the straight pipe of the driver's side also. Hope this gives you an idea. Of course, there is no tranny/tcase there right now. I'm attempting my first rebuild of both. Helluva time driving out the intermediate gear shaft in the tcase.

Great pics. Mine looks just like that but my bend goes towards the frame rail and not up. Have you had the tranny/transfer in with your pipe like that? Like I said I bent mine to the side. Clearance was tight 1 inch left and right.
