Is this correct??
Welcome to the Forum.
I just noticed that you are from New Zealand. It may not be illegal there, but your Jeep should have at least 2 sensors, 1 upstream and 1 downstream of the converter and yes the sensors do monitor exhaust.
Go to one of the online parts houses and buy it. Take it to a local muffler shop to be installed. I bought one for my BMW a couple of years ago for 279.00 on line and the shop charged me 75.00 for the install. Local garages were quoting anywhere from 1000 to 1500.
