Big old scratch on my exhaust

I was leaving the gas station at an angle, 'cuz like most of you my celi is lowered, and I heard was this loud ass scrapping sound. So then I go "Oh sh*t! There goes my exhaust." Once I got home I went to see how bad it is and it's not too bad, it's only the length of the canister grin

My question is which exhaust gives you the highest ground clearance other than TRD (not a big fan)

Damn, that sucks. Maybe your muffler shop could adjust it to bring it up off the ground another 1/2" or so.

That's as high as it can go, any higher and it'll rub on the bumper. Oh well, might as well get the blitz nur spec for my b-day, it's only two months away grin

most aftermarket exhaust canisters will run roughly the same as far as diameter is concerned. other than that its just a matter of shocks & springs for your ride height, keeping the proper pressure in your tires..and of course, taking ungodly long angles.

Get a buffing wheel for a drill and some polishing compound, you can buff those scratches right out.
