    So, im on my way to my girlfriends last night after the high school basketball game and upon taking off from a stop sign, i start hearing this awful and loud noise that sounded like metal scrapping the pavement directly under the passenger rear seat. So i immediately pull over and start looking under my truck and my exhaust broke right in half right under the passenger rear seat right before the muffler. So this morning i spent about 3 hours under my truck trying to figure out what to do, and ended up having to use a saw and take all of the piping and the muffler off of my truck. Any suggestions on what i should do? Sorry for the crappy phone pics but the first pic is what is left of my exhaust which is just a straight pipe that ends right below the back passenger door and the second is all the parts i had to take off.

    Take it to a muffler shop and have them weld a new pipe. A had to do the same to mine when I flattened my exhaust on the trail. I think I paid 60 bucks for the whole thing.

    i think someone stole your cats man, im not sure where they are on 2nd gens but an exhaust on a truck that new doesn't just break..

    Cats are lame anyways.. take it to a muffler shop and get them to weld a piece of pipe where your cat was ( that is if the cats missing of course )

    That's what it sounds like.

    Go down to a muffler shop and have them put it back together. If the cat is missing, an insurance claim may be needed. They are not cheap.

    I wouldn't eliminate the cat, the ECU will see that as a problem and will set a check engine light. And you won't pass smog.

    What exactly do you mean by "broken" pipe? I mean, as was mentioned, that doesn't just happen to a new truck. As someone who's had their cat jacked before, albeit on a 1st Gen, sounds like somebody just cut yours out. They fetch around $100 at a scrapyard. Unless you have dope insurance, ain't gonna cover it. But either way, if it's just a segment of pipe you need replaced, shouldn't be too expensive.

    Pain in the patooty, though, I've been there bra.

    in nc it is illegal to buy or sell used cats unless you have a liscense and also most shops (depending on area) wont install used cats

    Lucas I believe you should have 4 cats. 2 up by the manifold on each side and two underneath. The ones below look like canisters, one has a shield over it. Was the truck louder than usual when you started it up?

    Im pretty sure i know how it broke though. i hit a deer about a month ago and i believe it pushed the piping back and bent it and made it seperate and eventually, break.

    Speaking of that, did you ever find out if that's what was causing the rubbing? Did you get that fixed?
