Who's running without a heat-shield between muffler and tub?

Just wondering if anyone has removed it. It doesn't seem like the heat from the muffler would be enough to damage anything but idk. Muffler is a small Hushpower II.

Any thoughts?

You should be fine. Especially since the HP2 is a double wall muffler. I haven't had a heat shield on for years with no issue.

On my old setup I had a basic thrash muffler that dumped down behind the driver seat. I didn't have any shielding between the muffler and the tub. Still trying to figure out what kind of setup I'm going to go with on this new setup.

Thanks for the replies. I figured I would be okay... just wanted to make sure.

Ringer... On an unrelated note, your jeep build is absolutely phenomenal. Really enjoying watching the progress.

Running a Dynomax Evo Comp, dumps before the axle, no problems with heat or Evap.

Flowmaster 44 relocated under the driver's side without heat shield. No issues there.

Thank you! It's coming along, but I still have a lot of work to do to get it back out on the trails.

mine fell off awhile ago, it does get hot in storage area. but not hot enough to ruin anything i keep in there, plus it dries it out quick since the top leaks and water collects there.

Got a dyno max under under the tub between the front and rear seats, pipe exits out over the rear axle.

Had a heat shield but when it started to rattle, removed it. You can feel a little heat on the floor right behind d the driver seat but IMO not a big deal. I thought about using a header wrap on the muffler but have not got around to it.
