Muffler issue/question

While removing my rear trac bar (which I am so pumped I finally got off my butt and did) I noticed my muffler is busted. It cracked at the tailpipe. But the outlet for the muffler came with it. Is this repairable or is the muffler toast? Pics included. Thanks.

Since I'm tight on cash and my buddy will weld for free ill do that and see what's up. I have surface rust but live in Cali so cancer rust is no issue.
