On my last outing (Pictures above) I some how managed to break the exhaust hanger off of the Catalytic converter and my exhaust has started to bounce on the cross member for the transmission and wiggle itself loose. I can not complain it has lasted for 166,000 miles and probably a good 3-5,000 miles worth off-road abuse not bad for factory junk if you ask me !

To replace the factory exhaust I had started to Piece together a nice free flowing exhaust system. To started I had ordered a mandrel bent 2.5" tailpipe, Magnaflow magnapack muffler #10416 , and a 2.5" Magnaflow Free flow catalytic converter. Once it get's here I will upload some pictures of the parts, and take a Before video and an After video once it is installed . The parts should be here on Saturday, Depending on what time the parts arrive I may have the local exhaust shop weld it up on Saturday or Sunday if they are open. If not it will be installed on the 8th. While they are installing it I may have them bend up a 2.5" downpipe from the maifold to the cat to eliminate that factory kink so when I order a header in the near future I will have a extremely well flowing exhaust

When I did my exhaust I did the iron rock exhaust and some old jeep guy told me to put a cherry bomb before my "flowmaster" and it would be kinda quiet and sound awesome ... so I did it and my jeep sounds great, a lot of people comment on the sound, even at stop lights. I think it cost like $20 and just weld it right in line.
