Well I decided to make my own exhaust instead of going with a kit so I ordered a Flowmaster 50 series. The plan was to relocate the muffler under the jeep by just cutting a piece out of the pipe like the cooltech kit.
Things didn't quite work out that way.
I ordered a center in center out and realized there isn't room for that, the pipe is too close to the frame. So a patient person would have just ordered the right part, but I have no patience.
I ended up putting it in the stock spot, but since a flowmaster is so much thinner it tucks up nice and high and is safe.
But I needed parts to get the plumbing to line up and to hang it in place.
I looked at the stock muffler and realized everything I needed was right there!
I cut the piping and the hangers off, welded the piping together to get the angle and the 90 degree bend to meet the muffler. Once I got the plumbing setup, I took a piece of 1" square steel tubing, welded the hangers to it, then welded the muffler to the tubing to hang it where it needs to be.
Only thing left to get is a 90 and a tip - it exits out the side right now and I want to turn it back out the back where it needs to go.
End result is a deep, pleasant sound with no drone and a bit louder than stock.
I R happy
I ran out of daylight but I'll grab some pics later
