I don't own a Jeep, but a friend of mine owns a YJ and asked me if I could reproduce the tailpipe hanger clamp(Mopar part # 52003427) for him. I had a hard time even finding a picture of one, but I was able to make one using the Mopar parts drawing and the other half of the hanger that he was able to purchase (Mopar part # 52003426). I made a few extras to sell on eBay to anyone else who needed the part and it turned out that a lot of people need them.

A few months later, I got a request for the other half of the hanger and found that they were no longer available for sale anywhere. I was able to produce a similar part, but with relief cuts for bending, since I don't have a huge press in my garage. Pictured below is the full assembly that I produce.

I have a couple of parts in the prototype/testing phase that I'm waiting for some feedback on. Those being the muffler hanger and the hanger that attched to the catalytic converter. Both have been modified to fit the capabilities that I have in my small garage workshop.

I am open to trying to reproduce other parts as well, as long as they are not too large or complex for me to be able to do in my shop. Please send me a private message with any requests.

I will probably be listing the tailpipe hanger parts in the for sale section and any other parts after they are tested.

Nice!! I was not sure what was missing from my 91 until a was under a friends 91. One off the T case??, one that protruded rearward from the skid with 2 rubber isolators and a round bar with the ends to hold the isolators from slipping off and the last at the tail pipe which I have. BTW, your welds are immaculate!!

Real nice work. You might do well making transmission mount plates. The plate that bolts to the transmission, and then the transmission mount mounts to it. That is the same plate that supports the isolator that supports the cat.

Talking about this one

Mopar Transmission Mount Bracket

Mopar 52003925

Those brackets pop up on eBay now and then but they are pretty rare. People doing transmission swaps often need them. Some of them don't realize that part even exists and rig up a hackjob solution, or they can't find the part and rig up another solution. They also sometimes crack when the engine mounts die and the trans mount takes the brunt, which cracks the plate. So, sometimes people need a replacement even without doing a swap of any kind.

Don't know how big of an audience those would have, but maybe a decent amount. Just a thought.

I'd be willing to give it a try, if I could get my hands on one for measurements.
