Question on 2014 exhaust

I have a new to me 2014 with 23,000 miles. The right side exhaust seems to have lost support for the center pipe as shown in the picture. I can be moved from side to side. The right side is firm in place. I am guessing this is nothing to worry with unless it gets noisy. Any thoughts?

Did the previous owner attempt the trooper mod and give up? You might want to search on that and see if you want it louder or find a way to stop it rattling around on its own.

When I test rode it I thought it had more of a growl than what a normal stock exhaust should have. I did think that possibly they tried to remove baffles as a cheap exhaust "upgrade" but it did not look like the end cap was removable. I'll search for info on the trooper mod.

yes, I think this is a trooper mod victim. Thanks for the info.

Hmmm... be patient, keep your eyes open for a set of pipes that will come up occasionally......

I think I can get a friend to tac weld the inner pipe. Do you think they should be replaced?

A few tack welds should keep it in place and won't bother anything and would eliminate the rattle.

That last section of inner pipe is/was welded to an end plate, the Trooper mod was to take a metal hole saw to cut that weld and then a Dremel to remove the last inch or so of pipe... if you can tack weld it, then great.
