Exhaust system help!

So the other day my cat went up, and the shop said that my 95 yj had an exhaust system that was completely connected, rather than a separate cat, exhaust, etc. Has anyone ever replaced the entire thing? If so, any adivce on where to buy the entire set? Or is this some way to cut and re-weld the cat back into place? Thanks!

Sounds like they are trying to put one over on you. It's very common for exhaust systems to be welded together. The bad part is then cut out and a new piece welded or clamped in. If they are telling you the whole thing comes in one piece I would be interested in seeing it and having them demonstrate getting the entire thing in and out with it all put together.

The shop implied that the entire exhaust was welded from the motor all the way to the back to the rear exhaust tip.
You can cut the exhaust with a sawzall and it can be welded back in or clamped back in almost any location.

I would try another shop and see if the story is the same.
I just changed my CAT and it was clamped in. I had to cut the area around the clamp and insert the new CAT.

Find a another shop. They are full of it and just lazy to cut what needs to be cut and clamp new cat in.

Would love to see you post a repair order/quote from this shop stating this!

Haha I was so confused when they told me! I asked if there was any way they could just fix the one section but they said they couldn't unless they did it all. I guess I'm going to talk to another shop and see what they can do!

What they all said. Any competent shop can cut/bend/clamp/weld/mount any segment of the exhaust system. Keep shopping around.
