1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Exhaust Question

So I'm kind of new to the Jeep world. I recently bought a 96 Grand Cherokee and the guy that had it basically used it as a toy. The exhaust is cut off right after the catalyic converter, making it loud. I was thinking about buying a stock exhaust and just finishing things out to make it sound half way decent. I know this is probably a stupid question but can you use pipe from a v6 or does it have to be a v8? Does the size differ?

Well, none of the ZJs came with a V6 so... The I6 (4.0 straight 6) has a smaller factory exhaust than the V8, or at least it does on the 93-95; I'm fairly sure the 96-98 are the same. If you have the V8 buy V8 parts. If you have the I6 you can use the V8 parts from the cat back for a bit extra flow. IMS there are a couple cheap cat back options out there too.

EDIT: I mean that 96-98 are the same as 93-95 in that the V8 has bigger pipes, not that the 96-98 are the same size for the V8 and I6. Just reread it and it wasn't clear.
