Fluid change? Low fluids maybe?

Don't know much about the t-case but thought I'd ask.

Yeah that's where I'm starting. First thing when I'm back home will be to change the TC fluid. Really hope that's all it is. Didn't really leave much room in my budget.

Muffler- 389-952548

I can't find the adapter part # but it's just an adapter to take the pipe size from 2.25" to 2.5". They have those pretty much everywhere

I think if you go 3" it will mess with your back pressure too much and the Jeep won't run 100%

A 3" tailpipe would be alright but 3" straight through would probably be overkill

The I-6 has about 190hp, my guess is your v8 el camino had lots more.
