It looks like you are using an early DWF Exhaust. The ones for the heavy armor Humvees position the vertical stack about three inches further out than the early ones.

Yes they do but the early one is all I have. Maybe I could just section in 3" to the horizonatal portion of mine and extend the bracket.

Yes extend the horizontal portion of the pipe, but don't alter the bracket that attaches to the fender. That bracket stays the same, but they use sleeves to space the pipe out with matching longer bolts. Make the sleeves to fit and not the other way around I figure. You still want a rubber mounting at the fender too.

Do you have any pics of this setup? I do need to move the pipe out but would like it to be correct.

I don't have a foto of one installed. I did take a foto of what the spacers look like. They bolt to the side of the fender just like the original DWF does with the rubber bushing with aluminum sleeve. The bracket on the DWF looks to be exactly the same as the original style. Just make two spacers to fit your setup and use long bolts to mount it.

That's easy enough? Any idea on the length of the spacer. Looks about 1.250

My truck doesn't really know what it is. It depends on which angle you look at it. Just the way I like it. Btw I got the roof painted green this weekend.

This reminds me of pictures of some of the first uparmored trucks. Some of them didn't get to go through paint, so they just armored the cabs and other parts stayed woodland.

Sorry, just brain recalls from the beginning, I might ...

You are lucky, I decided to look through my photos. I have exactly 1 that you would like...
