I purchased a new down pipe from NAPA auto parts to replace my suspect doenpipe which was chushed by a rock on one of my off-road trips. This is the new pipe next to the original down pipe.
New exhaust down pipe.
Ready to install.
Original down pipe with a large dent on the side.
In this shot you can see that the dent has restricted the flow of the exhaust gasses out of the engine. At this point in my quest to correct my overheating jeep this seems to be the culprit of my problem.
