CJ7 Too Loud

I recently purchased a 1980 CJ7 with an inline 6 cylinder and manual trans.Previous owners did a fair amount of work under the hood : rebuilt engine and trans etc. The catylitic converter (on a 1980) has likely been removed . Engine exhaust is what looks like two (generic looking) headers each 3 pipes funneling into two 2.5 inch pipes going to a “manga flow” muffler (no model number) and two, 2.5 inch pipes coming straight out of muffler on the driver’s side rear of Jeep.See attached files. The exhaust is way too loud for my liking, I would rather be seen than heard. I’m in Texas. Some recommendations have been, replace catylitic converter, stock muffler and resonator. I’m not too interested in replacing converter (ranch running). Suggestions in quieting exhaust much appreciated. Muffler type and model ?
