OK, mine got replaced under warranty both times. The current one has been on there for two seasons now so maybe it is a torque issue. Since I'm gonna take the muffler off and paint it I better look in my service manual for the proper torque.

BTW. I rather suspect having a spare strap or two might also be prudent. I'm driving a 23 year old F150 so I understand all about having spare parts around.

i kind of figured that. due to thermal expansion of the pipe these things happen and whatever you do, do not follow the factory specs on the tension on the strap, it is far too tight if anything snug is all you need.
