Has anyone had to replace their exhaust yet? Mine has developed holes in a few spots. I wanted to know if the system could easily be pieced together or if I would have to go to a shop to have one custom made since I could not find any "kits."

Yes on both counts...

Either way, now is a good time to upgrade to the 2 1/4" exhaust pipe from the flange to the muffler then 2" to your bumper and
leave the noodle pipe behind....

If you piece it together, you will need someone to weld the initial bend to the mating flange...everything else could be clamped together...but
it will look kind of ghetto... if you have a buddy with a mig welder...time to buy him a case of beer and see if he's free for a saturday....

LOL... yes for quality control... although it's a little hard to drink anything if he's got his welding helmet on
and doing his job correctly... and I wouldn't have an open container anywhere where I'd be prepping the
pipe and fittings with an angle grinder... 40 Grit Lager tastes horrid...

:wink:
