Has anyone here ever used any of these? (Pro's / Con's)

They are made to butt 2 pieces of pipe
end to end with no overlap at the joint.

$75 a pop seems a bit steep to a poor boy like me. But I haven't priced any exhaust stuff in about 30 years.

I just used some on mine since I had to cut the x-pipe out of the way to get my trans out. They work great. I used the Walker/Dynomax brand, though. I was going to order the Summit brand, but they were out of stock.

The only downside to these is they're not very pretty. As long as you can mount them in obscure places, they're fine. Also, you need to make sure there is plenty of room to fit a wrench or socket to tighten them.

:flag: I used them on the 2 ton and semi trucks for a temporary fix until I could get what was needed for a repair. They worked short term but I can't say about permanently. :exit:
