I have a 08 Unlimited and the damm muffler looked like it had spots, I cleaned it and painted it with Rust O high heat probably 2 yrs ago and it still looks great! The black actually hides the muffler and looks really nice compared with the low end stainless steel muff Jeep installed.

+1 on the High-temp header paint! That is a very durable paint for exhaust

Looks awesome!!

I did the exhaust on my 2009 Patriot FDI, my 2012 JK and my 2013 JKU. My 2011 Patriot FDII was painted from the factory. A guy at work bought the 2009, 50K miles and the paint on that muffler still looks good. No rust. I didnt use primer on any of them. I did them when they were new. The Wranglers were done as soon as I got home from the dealer. I rub them down with 00 steel wool and clean them up with alcohol. After spraying I go for a ride, twice, to cure them. If the muffler already has rust it would be a whole different technique. If you dont remove the rust, it WILL come back. Do it from new, clean it good and cure it, it will last for years. (Unless you scrape it off...)
