It's nice to have a limited run Jeep until you get to unique parts. My muffler is shot and sounds like I'm getting a UPS delivery from 1995. I don't want to use a loud cat-back to replace it so I looked for an OEM replacement. An OEM muffler for an LJ is only made by MOPAR now, it comes with a tailpipe and the best price I found is a nucking futs $314.88 plus tax and shipping https://www.moparpartsgiant.com/part...6052347aa.html
The body is 27.5" long with an offset exhaust, so I ordered this one from amazon with a 28" body and similar pipes for $56.78 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...KIKX0DER&psc=1
oddly for another discontinued vehicle, a Pontiac Montana V6.
along with two 3" x 2.25" clamps https://www.amazon.com/EVIL-ENERGY-E...NsaWNrPXRydWU=
and some 12" sawzall blades to cut the old muffler off leaving the bolt on flange in place. Theoretically anyway, I'll post up how it actually goes when it gets here. The part I don't understand is why they didn't use the same muffler as a TJ 4.0 with a longer tailpipe instead of the same tailpipe with a longer muffler. I considered doing that myself, but I don't want to deal with removing the 14 year old bolts on the flanged front pipe of the muffler, so since I'm committed to cutting anyway this seems easier and should give me a quieter muffler.
