Think of how harsh the cop will be when he wirtes the OP a ticket for driving an unsafe vehicle (that has parts falling off it), or wreckless endangerment. He could come up with anything. What if it causes a pileup on the interstate?

Get the pipes welded, no more possibilities.

I have to concur. Saying something is a stupid move is not the same thing as flaming someone. I think I'm a pretty intelligent guy, but I've done stupid things in the course of laziness/lack of knowledge/lack of skill/lack of money/etc. The best people can do stupid things. This is just guidance.

Im not here to argue. let the OP do what he wanst and if that is putting JB Weld on his exhaust let him learn. I just thought the comment

Don't be stupid. If you cannot afford to get your rig fixed right, don't own a car.
was stupid and harsh. You are trying to warn him about the dangers, but then your telling him that if he cant afford to fix it right then not to even own a car?? That makes sense Im sorry but if that comment was constructive criticism then I must not know what it is.

And GeekInJeep your comment

maybe thats what happened here, but there is no reason for a MOD to tell this dude not to own a car cause he makes one mistake. If we didnt own our jeeps because we made mistakes then no-one would have a jeep.

I can think of a lot harsher sentences to post than what Atomicmoose did.

I've been wondering this too, but most likely would put a high flow cat on before totally removing it. I can't remember where but I read somewhere that removing or even hollowing out the cat screws with the o2 sensor and can make one of the dash warning lights start going off as a result.

FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!!!

But seriously, the flowmaster doesn't help that much. When I bought my Jeep it came with a flowmaster. I didn't realize I had one until I took a damp rag and wiped my muffle down and found out it was labeled flowmaster.

as can I, duh, but this isnt a fight, Im stating what I think and he is stating what he thinks. I just think its funny that MODs can act like jerks sometimes and just because their names are labeled in black everyone takes their side, Im pretty sure they can be wrong too. Anyway let the OP do what he wants, If he decides to fix his damn exhaust with JB Weld thats his choice, if it falls off then it happens, if it doesnt and the JB Weld works then what are you people gonna say? Nuff said, OP if its temporary and you think the JB Weld will hold for a while keep it on there till you can "fix it right".

You would realize you had one if it was a 40. Def. would sound a hell of a lot different in stock if you have two working ears.


And about the OP's deal. Weld it. Why do a hack job that isn't safe. I am a big fan of doing things right or not doing them at all. I know there are probably some parts of my Jeep that aren't exactly "right" *coughstupidbushwhackerscough* but those are from a previous owner.

Btw this is the internet so don't get your panties in a bunch.

This will be the last time I post about this. If you feel the need to belabor the issue, please feel free to send a PM to Keith.

Yes, I can defiantly can hear it, it is extremely loud. The neighbors hate it, but I was talking about the lack of noticable increase in HP or Torque over a stock muffler.

Well after some heavy highway driving today I think it is still on there. I am going to forget about it and it will be fine.

to those using the Flowmaster 40, what did you do with your cat?
