Upside down muffler?

I want to put a Flowmaster Super 44 onto my '97 GC 4.0 I6, the problem is that my Jeep has a center inlet, and an offset outlet on the left, but the closest match Super 44 has a center inlet, but an offset outlet on the right side...so is it ok for me to just flip the muffler upside down and install it? In theory if it is upside down it would fit, but is that ok for the muffler?

It won't sound as good unless you flip or roll your jeep on it's roof.

most mufflers have drain holes in the bottom for condensation. so make sure you buy the full stainless version if you're going to run it upside down.

I don't think flowmasters come with a drain hole, but adding one is no big deal and definitely recommended.

I have the super 44 off road edition and with a little caressing it for on there almost perfectly level you shouldn't have any problems, only problem I ran into is the new tail I got had the hanger in the wrong side
