Quadratec parts fitment accuracy?

I have a 2005 TJ. I am looking online for a catalytic converter on quadratec. they have a few but do not list one for a 2005 TJ w/ I6. Does anyone know how accurate their fitment recommendations are? Arent all TJ I6 essentially interchangeable.

my rear cat on the down pipe burnt out and clogged the rear one on the mid pipe. When I was looking I realized Quadratec doesn't even sell the ones on the down pipe. They only sell the cat on the mid pipe. The rear most cat isn't even necessary. The o2 sensors don't monitor it. The o2 sensors are above and below the cats on the down pipes. Mine is an 04 so I'm pretty sure it's the same. But if it isn't I'm sorry for wasting your time

Isn't fun the best thing to have?

I am getting O2 sensor error codes on the front bank 1. I wasn't sure what replacement cat to get. I know what it looks like but don't see it on quadratec.

what does the code say?

chances are you need a new O2 sensors and not a new CAT.

If the cat is in fact bad and you don't have the ability to do some fab work and weld a new one in, you have to replace the entire y-pipe with both cats. I believe there is a write up in this section detailing the individual replacement of them.

I would ensure that the O2 sensors are functioning properly before throwing money at a cat.

It depends which cat is bad.The rear cat can be cut off and a universal cat clamped on.I did that and it worked great for $130.

TJ cats are not all interchangeable.

Try Rock Auto.

Yeah I bought my y pipe with the cats on it at rock auto. Not cheap. Like 600. And that will come with the rear cat too. If you have a state that doesn't actually test the emissions (just checks the codes) I wouldn't even put in the rear cat

Does any aftermarket catalytic converter solve the problem of the check engine light on with a code stating the catalytic converter emission is below standard?

Jeeps have been known to be picky about the replacement parts that they like or don't like. Lot's of TJ owners have replaced o2 sensors with aftermarket sensors and still had problems, then replaced the aftermarket parts with sensors from the Jeep dealership and had their problems go away.
