Exhaust Suggestions?

Anyone have any suggestions? I need the entire thing basically...know anywhere I can order a kit that comes with all the pipes pre-bent and some cheap muffler? Dont need anything fancy, but the exhaust on there now needs to be replaced bad.

Or would it be cheaper to have a muffler shop just bend me up an entire exhaust and weld in some random cheap muffler? I imagine it'd be cheaper to just buy a kit and do it myself...?

I went through the same thing when I bought my YJ 5 years. After pricing the parts and calling a local exhaust shop it came out cheaper to have it done at the shop with a lifetime warranty (going by memory I think they charged $90 for a new pipe from the cat, new high flowing muffler, and tailpipe with a lifetime warranty on the muffler.) My advice is check with a local shop or two (I am not talking a chain shop like midas but a local shop.) I never take my vehicles to shops but when it comes to exhaust I always get frustrated and it usually works out cheaper to have it done.

I would advise just to take it to a shop. Ive never had good luck with those kits. As far as the clamps coming loose and exhaust leaks. I would just take it in and have a shop put a system on it. Much cheaper than one of those kits that are suppossed to give you 20 horserpower!
