Looks like a 2.5" inlet, 2" outlet.

That's my nonprofessional opinion.

Your ZJ is a 1997 4.0 correct?

I don't see the downstream O2 sensor, after the converter. Is it just not visible in the photo for some reason?

The o2 sensor was on the other side.

Ahhh.. there she is. All you need is a good universal weld-on high flow converter such as a Magnaflow. Any muffler shop can weld it in place in about 30 minutes. PM me if you'd like a price.

^^ Magna flow converters are your best choice . For my 5.9 , it was less than most prices mentioned to my door . Here's a pic of Magna-flow's 4.0 cat and muffler . Sure looks pretty when it's new .

BTW , no welding was done on that exhaust , note the nice clamps that don't kink the pipe

Wow where do I get those nice clamps? Also the one I need is 2.5 in and 2.0 out or 2.5 both ways? I noticed the one on mine goes inside the muffler instead of over it and the one in that pic goes over it.

You'll have to PM 4Slow9erHybrid to find out that type of clamp .

I would contact Kolak . He will set up up with either a factory replacement , or , if you can do a muffler also , 2.5 in and out .

It can go either way , there won't be any notiable difference in sound or performance . Ideally , the flow should not meet any hard edged pipe , in theory , it will cause turbulance and disrupt flow .

Wasn't there a never-ending recall on the stock cat for 4-slows? Call your dealer. Worst case, it costs you a phone call.

Not mine sir , but I can tell you you will NOT find a more meticulasly maintained jeep anywhere on earth

That undercarriage paint was paint code matched and applied to the factory locations only . The jeep has about 80ish K IIRC .

He's also got the cleanest 5.9 complete interior installed . Mine's clean , his would be best descibed "like new"

If I ever need a detailed job done on something , I would hire this guy in a heartbeat .

So it looks like the Inlet is 2.5" and the outlet is 2.25" so a universal one wont work since it's 2.5 in/out direct fit on ebay is the same price as local so that's no help.
