I love how so many people think they need a new engine, when all they need is muffler bearings lol. Im looking at a car now to flip. Think ill be good with just some new bearings. I mean its not a fun job but you can make a lot of money "rebuilding the engine" when all you have to do is change the bearings.

Jeep manual says change every 91,523.7 miles. I'm at 91,520.0. I don't want to go over and experience the infamous muffler wobble.
It is actually 9,523,700 miles. I got a seven million mile warranty with mine.

You're correct. But, like most everything Chrysler ever built, they don't use the straight forward approach.

I wasn't using the conversion table in the back for 91,523.7 to 9,523,700.

Btw, did you have to preheat the gas tank with a plasma cutter? I read online a lot guys are doing that nowadays to cut down the amount of time it takes to loosen the MBL (muffler bearing linkage).

I did it the old fashion way, using a Torx 4.36, a proprietary tool invented by Chrrysler to fit their torx 4.36 bolt.

I used indirect heat. I set the house on fire so the garage would heat the gas tank slowly

This kind of thinking separates the men from the boys.

NHB (Neighbor House Burn) method works well if you're downwind. Otherwise you need to burn both of your neighbors houses down, the DNHB method.

I prefer the laser method, it's a little slower but works great. This one http://m.wickedlasers.com/arctic (2W version) is the best IMO.

That explains the magnifying glass and the sun method didn't work. But I did burn a lot of ants.

Indeed it is Dot approved It meets all FAA requirements also, however it has been known to cause cancer in California so I am not allowed to sell it there but I can take payment via paypal and. Have a homing pigeon smuggle it in below the radar.

I won't buy any until I see an MSDS and it meets or exceeds all OSHA and ANSI requirements for impact resistance and it must not boil or evaporate until it reaches 1450*F.
