Extending exhaust pipe from under bus

Hello!

In order to save the underbelly of my bus from getting soaked in fumes, I am going to extend the exhaust pipe.




Is there any reason why I can't just get an elbow piece and shoot the exhaust out the side in past the front of the rear tires?

Thanks.

I don't see why not.
Worst case you might end up covering that wheel in soot but past that I think you should be fine.

We "turned" ours just before the rear bumper. Prior to that the exhaust was running thru the rear bumper and we were concerned that it would melt the plastic parts on the Jeep while towing. We made a turn or two which resulted in a turned down exhaust. Also got rid of a couple tiny holes in the pipe.

pic showing the big hole in the bumper the exhaust pipe previously passed thru. I think I will use it for the permanent generator/genturi exhaust.


After the "modification. This is the only pic I have of that part of the bus. If you look close where the bottom rub rail ends at the rear bumper you can just see the end of the exhaust.

Piece of cake. Go for it. Maybe $50 in parts tops.

Re: Extending exhaust pipe from under bus

Thanks for the support people! Yea I went to the auto parts store today and got an elbow piece of 4" pipe, 2 clamps, and 2 universal hangers which came to $97. I guess parts in Vancouver, Canada are just more expensive. Looked online but couldn't seem to find the exact pieces I needed. Oh well! Still a few hundred bucks cheaper than if I'd gotten it done at the shop.
