First off the baffles are the sheets of metal on the inside of the muffler that muffles the sound.
Second, they may be right about the muffler not being right for your jeep, but that sounds like a load to me.
Most mufflers will cross as long as they have a large enough inlet and outlet. IE jeep has a 3" pipe (yours may differ) and you put a muffler with a 1.5" inlet.
You can imagine the problem here.
Way too much backpressure.
Also you should be able to do it yourself with just a few wrenches, unless they welded it on.
Then you will need to cut the pipe, this takes a bit more time, but not hard, Ive done it lots.
Also you will have to decide if you want to just clamp the new muffler on or if you want to weld it, personally I would choose to weld it, but I weld all the time so its easy for me to say.
Next when you say it is too loud, is it a crappy 1970's rusted muffler loud or guy on a motorbike loud?
I have a glasspack cherrybomb on mine (cheap only cost around 55$), But it sounds nice.
It gives the jeep a throaty deep sound.
Its not too loud, I don't notice it on the highway, but step on it in town and people know it has some balls.
I love the way it sounds, Im making it a dual with two glasspacks, looking forward to that.
Alot of people recommend magnaflow mufflers. They sound nice, but I prefer the glasspack (magnaflow makes them too I think), I didn't think I would like it at first, but wow.
