2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: I'm Split on the Split Exhaust
June 07, 2012
I'm going to side with many of the commenters here and say that I liked the old center-mounted exhaust pipes on the previous SRT8 better than the split pipes on the new model. They were unique, they could be spotted a block away and they just plain looked mean.
I know why they got rid of them though -- they're a pain. A pain in the shins specifically. You see, when youire unloading something out of a vehicle with the pipes in the middle you're legs are going to get cooked. I know this mainly because my '75 F-250 used to have twin pipes shooting straight out the back. After one too many cooked knees, I had them relocated to the corners.
Then there's the whole towing thing, but that's another story entirely.
