If you plan on driving it on the road as a street registered vehicle, Federal emissions laws require
a cat. In general, having the cat will give you extra backpressure which will give you better low end torque, as well as cleaner air. It's better IMO to just get a cheap replacement (that is, don't get one from a dealership) if you find that the cat is busted up inside.
FYI - Talk of skirting Federal emissions laws regarding catalytic converters is not much tolerated here on JeepForum.
