Can you run true dual exhaust? Mine is with the factory manifolds.

4ds don't enable dirt magnets.

I can make you one of these if you want. Just an email to the laser cutter away. I'm going to find some high temperature plastic/rubber and use the cutouts as exhaust hangers

Really? I am low and really long and have wheeled all over and i wouldn't change it for anything...it's definitely not a fad.

As for the exhaust, mine is set up just like what you originally built...it works great if you can find a way to fit it.

Yup, mainly in the rock piles. Hill climbs and random mounds like at rocks and valleys weren't bad, only a few times I would belly out but that was when I was only a 96" wheelbase. This season I'm at 105" so I have a feeling I will be smacking my skid a little more

Just for argument sake, mine was 119, and the belly was too low. It never really hung me up, but I knew how to drive it. If I was to build it all over again, it would be a little shorter or have more belly clearance.

Belly on the buggy drags alot. But it's lined with plastic so it glides over stuff lol.

To clarify, mine hits all sorts of shit, but doesn't hang up therefore i consider it a non issue. I honestly cannot remember the last time was high centered.

21.5" nice flat belly with 102-103" wheelbase and I love it. You should be happy with the LJ if you keep the bottom flat. Yours is longer but also 1.5" taller so should be comparable in the breakover department (mine is 34" to the door opening). I thought about skinning mine with UHMW but really haven't seen a need yet. I get hung up on my axles WAY more than my frame.

I've seen those at Summit/Jeg's a few times. Or maybe he'll sell you the whole Y pipe setup since he can't use it
