Hi Guys,

I just thought I'd show every one how Jason at Cruisin' Off-Road slightly modded his FJ80 catalytic converter plate on his sliders to fit around the low hanging aftermarket exhaust I had.

After getting my HDJ81, I ripped off the running boards and also got a Rage Big Bore exhaust. After coming off the turbo and heading down behind the right front wheel the exhaust was pretty highly exposed and uncool.

I intended to replace the running boards with some sliders but was worried about the exhaust's exposure. A couple of emails later, Jason made just a minor mod to his FJ80 design to have the plate snuggly fit the exhaust and keep it safe from all the gnar.

No shipping and free install if you drive out to Chilliwack too.


First pic is before; second and third are showing right slider.

Yeah, they hang down that low. If I didn't already have my exhaust done, I would have gotten one of them, when there was a group buy. Since it is all in sections, it would have been easy to reworked that area to sit higher. When my present exhaust starts to rot, I would do the ATEB down the center exhaust like Jeff's in SS, and possibly cut out part of the cross member for a more straight through exhaust.

I like the straight shot exhaust like ATEB does, however I wouldn't go to the effort of cutting other parts to straighten the route even more. I went from a 3" straight pipe exiting in front of the rear tire (pipe was 7' long with only 2 bends) to a 3" with a high flow muffler through the factory routing, and didn't notice any difference in response or power (just way less noise). As long as there are no points of restriction like squished pipe a 3" system flows plenty of air for a 1HD-T.

That's my $0.02 backed up by some experience.

Yep- Glad I went fully custom. I saw Ikeeds exhaust and it hangs almost as low as the cats on a gasser. Nice truck...

I'm glad I could help you guys bask in the glory of your infinite wisdom for getting a custom exhaust. If there's anything else about me that I can tell you to make you feel superior just let me know. ;)
