bad wheeling accident

Yesterday i was wheeling ith some buddies over on some of my land. We were creek riding and to climb back out of the creek you have to make it up these nasty banks. Well i gave it a good attempt but i only got the front tires up. So i started to back down for another attempt but i guess my exhaust got caught on the ground and it some how wrapped itself around my axle. So i get pulled up the bank so that we can check the damage and it has ripped everything including the cat and back.

the cat got burried int eh sand and mud it is packed inside of it if a can wash all that out is it still good? And i guess i need a new muffler what are the favorites and has any one ever done a single chamber? my buddy has one on a f-150 but comparing a v8 to the 4.0 isn't fair.

Just need some help.

You might check into aftermarket free-flow cats (Dynomax makes a line of performance cats, not sure if they have a 4.0 XJ-specific one or not.) If the price is out of your budget (cats are expensive) and the old cat isn't crushed or bent you could try washing it out and re-using it, but if the internal ceramic honeycomb is cracked or damaged, it may start rattling and buzzing like an 85 Honda Civic before long

As for mufflers, I love Magnaflows... on my 440 v8. But as has been said, what works for a dual-exhaust v8 sometimes sounds godawful on a straight six and vice-versa. Which is why my XJ still has the factory muffler.

If you still have the old cat and the inside honeycomb is still good, take it and sell it on ebay for scrap under business and industrial. And trust me you will pay for a whole new cat and exhaust.... Guys buy them for the platnium inside.
Just my $.02 but thats what I would do.

If you're into cars you must understand the golden rule: You have 3 words: Fast, Cheap, Reliable...
The problem is, you can only choose 2 of them.

Yea, theres a guy that comes by our shop to buy metals and junk parts. He pays anywhere from $35 to $100 for old cats, its ridiculous, I never woulda thought they would be so valuable..
