As you power through the mud, explore sand dunes or tear up the trails, you have to depend on your exhaust hanger. Without it, your muffler could suffer serious damage at the hands of the elements. If you've ever had to replace an exhaust system, then you know that it's no laughing matter. Outfitting your Jeep with a brand new exhaust can be costly. Here's what happens when you don't have a good exhaust hanger.
A Broken Hanger Slows Your Engine Down
First, your engine isn't going to be doing its best. A jeeper having to suffer with a low performing engine can ruin any outing. If the exhaust hanger is broken or if it falls, it can place stress on the vehicle's exhaust pipes. This is going to lead to breaking and cracking. We all know what happens next: an exhaust leak. When you have an exhaust leak, you aren't just dealing with a lot of noise. You're also dealing with a depression of power, acceleration and fuel efficiency.
Make Sure Your Hanger Isn't Damaged
One way that you can tell if it's time to replace your exhaust hanger is if you can tell that it hang lower than normal. If the hanger breaks, then you're going to notice that your exhaust can be seen under the vehicle. Additionally, when you're off-roading, you'll run an even higher risk of brush, rocks, and other terrain knocking against your exhaust. The point of the hanger is to keep the exhaust as close to the body as possible.

Your Jeep was made for the outdoors from its rugged design to its capable handling. Don't wait for your Jeep TJ exhaust hanger to give out before you replace it. The last thing you want to worry about is your muffler and pipes rattling around back there bouncing off rocks while you drive. 4 Wheel Parts has everything you need from brackets to insulators to keep your exhaust in top shape. Keeping your exhaust system mounted and flexible is key to increased horsepower and maximum efficiency.
Learning how to install exhaust hangers doesn't take much time. It's a simple thing that maximizes your horsepower and keeps your muffler and exhaust pipes in place. The quickest way to remove the exhaust mounts is by greasing them up with a little cheap oil. A pair of Channellock pliers makes the job that much faster. Grip the rubber with the pliers after greasing and pull. They should easily pop off. Squeeze the pliers on either side of the bushing to replace the old with the new. For easier replacement, use some silicone paste in the hole that slides onto the frame. The silicone won't eat away at the rubber like many petroleum products do. Once everything is back together, your exhaust system will have the support it needs. Without the rattling your ride will be smoother and more enjoyable.
