What to Look Out for When Buying Ford Bronco Exhaust Tips?
Construction Materials & Installation
Three main materials are used in the construction of exhaust tips: stainless steel, carbon fiber, and titanium. Stainless steel is the most common material used as it's resistant to corrosion and can be polished to a high shine. Carbon fiber is a lightweight material often used in performance applications as it reduces weight. Titanium is an expensive material that's often used in high-end applications due to its weight savings and resistance to corrosion.
Concerning installation, be sure to read the installation instructions that come with the exhaust tip. It's always best to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for installation. If you're not comfortable doing the installation yourself, we recommend taking it to a professional mechanic or installer.
If you'll do it yourself, here are two main methods: welding and clamp-on. Welding is the more permanent option as it physically attaches the exhaust tip to the pipe. Clamp-on exhaust tips attach to the exhaust pipe via a metal or silicone clamp. This is an easy installation method, but it's not always as secure as welding.
To ensure a tight, leak-free seal, use high-quality exhaust clamps rated for the temperatures and pressures of your exhaust system. If you're unsure which clamps to use, consult a professional mechanic.
Tip Type, Size, and Design
There are many different styles and types of exhaust tips available on the market. Some of the most popular types and designs of exhaust tips are the round, square, rolled edge, angled, and slash-cut tips, each with its peculiar applications, benefits, and cons. Choosing the right size exhaust tips is important as too small of a tip can create backpressure and reduce performance, while too large of a tip can look out of place and may not fit properly.
Sound Level & Compatibility
When shopping for exhaust tips, it's important to consider the sound level and compatibility of the tips. Louder exhaust systems will generally require larger tips as they need more space to release the gases. Smaller tips will be sufficient if you're looking for a quieter system. It's also important to ensure that your tips are compatible with your exhaust system. Most tips will fit your Bronco’s exhaust system, but it's always best to double-check before making a purchase.
As mentioned earlier, exhaust tips bring many benefits to the table. Choose a good exhaust tip, and you'll love your ride even more. Be sure to check our collection of the best Ford Bronco exhaust tips.
