Been a while so I thought I would give an update.

I ended up going with the dealer cat. A vendor I'm working with needed as close to oem so they could get before and after numbers on a dyno. So I gave the ok for them to order and install the oem cat.

After all was said and done and they sent the parts off to CARB for approval I went to pick it up. Total cost, $0.

Be warned because a lot of the aftermarket cats are not legal in California. They may not pass an emissions test.

Yep, I know. In this case, its an OEM cat from the dealer in our area. I originally wanted to get an after market, but for the testing they wanted to do, they needed factory. So they bought it from the Jeep dealer. Invoice showed about $1.1k with no charge to customer.

$0 is a good price.

I thought so. I was expecting to pay at least labor. But it worked out even better.

Ya, that is a good cost, I recently paid about $250 for a aftermarket cat and muffler designed to increase gas mileage and put it on myself. I noticed that I get much better gas milage driving in the mountains (2-3 MPG) and just a little better gas milage driving in the city (.5-1 MPG). Since my car had 200k miles I figured getting rid of the originals was a good bet.

The downsides? The muffler is about as loud as before (although its a deeper, controlled rumble now, before it was just loud and rattily) and the jeep sometimes vibrates when in neutral at a stop light. I don't like the vibrations, I might just need to tighten up some screws on the dash to resolve, we'll see.

Good luck with the testing.
