This aFe Loop Pipe Delete is made of two and a half inch mandrel bent aluminized tubing, and it's designed to accept long armed travel kits while retaining the factory catalectic convertors. It's gonna help when we lift our jeep and take it off road. So, today we're gonna install it on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler.
Tools you'll need for this installation: a lift, or a jack and jack stands, three eighths ratchet, 13 millimeter socket, 17 millimeter wrench, 16 millimeter wrench, safety glasses, a marker, tape measure, and a SAWZALL or a hack saw.
We got the jeep up in the air. The very first thing we're gonna do is mark the loop pipe where it needs to be cut. We're not gonna disconnect it from anything yet; all we're gonna do is make the cut, and then we'll disconnect it. Here is the loop pipe. As you can see, it's big and it can get in the way, so how we're gonna get rid of this; we're gonna cut it out, make a mark, cut it out, and then put in our new section.
Grab a tape measure. Then, you're gonna measure from the wield on the driver’s side catalectic convertor. Measure three and a quarter inches back. Put a mark right there, and that's where you're gonna make your cut. And that's where we have to make our cut. Before we remove any of the bolts, especially right here on the wide pipe, we're gonna spray them with some penetrating lubricant. They're pretty corroded and we want to make it a little bit easier on ourselves. And, give those a couple minutes to soak in, and then you can try to break them free. After you've let them soak with penetrating lubricant, you can break them loose.
All right. Remove the second bolt on the loop pipe. Then, remove the loop pipe itself. It should give you a little bit more wiggle room. It might make it a little easier to install your new loop pipe delete pipe. If you unbolt the passenger side wide pipe, that should give you little bit more wiggle room, and more room to get the new loop pipe delete in. Just twist it up in there, and they'll go together.
Then, if you forgot to install the clamp like I did before you put the pipe on; you can install the clamp once it's installed. We're gonna tighten this clamp now, and then once it's tightened we can move on to installing the new hardware to the wide plate. Take the provided hardware and bolt together the loop delete pipe and the factory wide pipe. Put there, a nut on the back side and tighten it down. Get both bolts tightened up, and your installation's finished.
We got rid of our factory loop pipe with the aFe Loop Delete Pipe. They have better offered clearance now. Installation wasn't too bad honestly. It's only gonna take you about an hour and a half, just make sure you measure twice, and cut once, and before you know it you'll be heading off road.
