every rod end I've seen fail (not many) was from hitting something on the trail.

Ordered new pre-cats. I've been getting a P0432 code for about a year now and just keep resetting it with my scan gauge. Its happening more often now and it won't pass emissions like that.

I'll post a write up if I end up replacing them myself. I can barely see them from under the jeep. Should be fun.

Damn you California emissions.

On the plus side I spent the extra coin for the Magnaflow stainless ones. I don't want to have to replace them again in 2 years when the cheaper one rusts out.

looks like that one was not cared for, rusted and broke. I have never seen a rod end fail that way before.
so that is what it is, a ruff stuff joint? it was put on there by the PO so i have no clue what kind it is...

After owning my Jeep for almost two years, I for some reason decided to read the big orange warning decal that has always been in front of me..... Has anyone else actually read it before?? Hahaha!

What was the damage on those if i may ask? i have those on my 2000 and they have successfully ruined my life... well not exactly but forced me to buy a new head for it since the motor that was in it had a whole in the block.

Are the Pre-cats removable? (for those of us who don't live in CA) Or are there other things that need to be changed as well in order to do so?

I paid $350 shipped on RockAuto.com for the Magnaflow stainless cats. I went for the stainless because I didn't want to have to replace them again after 2 years from rusting out. The regular Eastern cats were $220 or so. Of course after I ordered them I found this link on NAXJA.... Oh well.

You can change the ECU but then you have to rewire the system for 2 O2 sensors instead of 4. Not really worth the hassle, and also illegal, so do at your own risk.
