muffler help?

So after my last wheeling trip to the Rubicon trail on Labor Day weekend, I noticed my muffler sounds louder and my jeep is a little more sluggish. Someone said I may need a new muffler....sound right? Any suggestions for a new one? And are they pretty easy to install yourself?

You will want to address this pretty quickly if you have crushed your exhaust. It is not good for your engine to have all of that increased back pressure.

Also, if you go with Banks Monster and your rear axle is trussed, the larger pipe will need to exit under the cab. But damn it sounds good.
