Wj Muffler repair?

I just noticed a small hole in the rear muffler on my 02' Overland. I want to try a repair/patch vs. buying a whole new setup. What have you folks found to work well?

Quik Steel. It comes in a tube and is a two-part putty. You just slice off a chunk and knead it, the stick it on where you want it. I put it on my car's muffler a few months ago. It's still there. I put it on my boats aluminum gas tank. It stuck to the slick aluminum great.

I would look for a new muffler. The repair may hold for a while, but if the muffler has a hole that is from corrosion and not hitting a rock, it will soon just create new holes.

EDIT: Kolak's is probably the way to go!

Def replace the muffler. Bring it to a muffler shop and have them toss a FlowMaster on it. You won't regret it. I put a 50 series on my Ford Expedition and it sounds real throaty but not obnoxious at all.

I would fix it with epoxy until it completely fell off, then replace it.
