    anyone else have this issue...im getting a black spot under my car...looks like its from moisture dripping out of an exhaust leak...i can see the clamp thats leaking...its right before the Y pipe.......is this something i should just handle myself (tighten the clamp) or will that not most likely fix it?

    Hey huggytree ...are you sure it's not from the weld in the Y pipe? My stock Y pipe had a crack in the weld at 4,000 miles when I changed to my Solo catback. I know someone else just posted having the same issue. It's a really sloppy weld from the factory.

    I believe mine is leaking out of a slip fit on the exhaust. Same as picture above. If you rev the engine up while warming up, you'll have the same blackness on the floor behind the car. :(

    Huggytree...I have same leak (black crap / condensation drip) in same exact place as you. I was assured it was nothing to be concerned about.

    I would think any exhaust leak would be something dodge would be concerned about..maybe they want us to smell some exhaust fumes...maybe its part of the HC experience?.....i am going to let it go.....ill go back to my old saying....what do you expect..its a Dodge.....thank you all for letting me know that we all have it....
