Lol, allright that was unexpected - Muffler Issue

Hmm well today I was working on the new jeep; replacing a snapped handbrake cable on the rear passenger side. The install went somewhat smoothly, and the internals of that drum brake are pretty annoying to fit back together.

While under that area of the jeep I decided to check out the muffler, and to my surprise the whole thing was loose! apon further inspection I found that the entry pipe into the muffler had broken loose from its welds, and allowes the muffler to slide back and forth a good inch or two.

This jeep is still relatively new to me, and I have not really been under it that much. But I often wondered why the jeep sounded like a Honda Civic with one of those mufflers...

Anyways now I need to figure out something to replace it with, how much does a new muffler cost? I want something that's not too obnoxious, and probably something free'er flowing.

Do you guys recommend anything? Im on a tight budget so the less I spend on it the better

I may just contact my local auto parts store and see what they got in stock aswell

Contact your local muffler shop and make a new friend. These guys are good to have around just in case. My guy is the best in town and I send him a lot of work. As a result, he didn't charge me a dime for installing my setup. I'm running a spintech model 6222 which is good, small/compact and sounds good. I think I paid around $85 from spintech for it. He put in some new pipe for the smaller size and welded it all up good. Has worked well for me. Would have been around $150 or so if I went anywhere else.

Best of Luck,

Mike
