Help with my exhaust

So I got a new muffler which sounds awesome and I also got the exhaust dumped. Well it's way to loud and to the point I don't want to drive it because it is so loud. Can you un dump the exhaust? Would it be a lot to pay the shop to do?

Ok, im assuming you had it dumped right out of the can? You can adjust sound levels by lengthening the tail pipe. I put a two chamber flowmaster on mine with a turn down. While I loved it the GF did not so much. I added about 18" out the muffler and its much quieter. Its still dumped in front of the rear axle but the extra inches made a huge difference

If your muffler is behind the skid plate its a matter of removing the turndown and installing a factory style tail pipe and isolators. The isolators are about $6.00 each and the factory style tail pipe is about $28.00 at Autozone a few clamps and you are set.Getting the exhaust out from under the jeep will greatly improve noise levels inside.

It "sounds awesome" and is "way too loud" at the same time? Having never heard of an exhaust "dump", I googled it. Why in the world would you put such a thing on a Jeep? These "cut outs" are supposed to be for bypassing your muffler when racing. There should be a way to open and close it. Just remove the cut out and replace the pipe.

A dump is what is comonly called a turn down it is a short piece of pipe bent downward. A cut out is a completely different thing.A dump elininates the restriction of a tailpipe but doesnt remove the sound from under the vehicle like a tailpipe.A dump is a bad idea because it fails to remove exhaust fumes from under the vehicle where they can seep into the passenger compartment.

cut the turn down off and install a stock tailpipe like mowrangler described..if the tailpipe is not long enough to reach the muffler you can buy sections of straight pipe to extend it in different diameters and lengths

Do I have to weld? Should I pay a shop to do it? How much would it cost?

welding is better in my opinion but you could clamp them instead..depends on you,your ability and desire to do it yourself.no doubt an exhaust shop would do a good job..I have no idea as to cost because I do my own

Take it to any exhaust shop. It wont cost as much as you think to get a regular tailpipe re-installed. And it will cut way down on your noise while still having a nice tone. Flowmasters are loud to begin with. I can imagine its miserable to drive around with it rumbling under your feet all the time.

As long as you buy the right pieces (measure) you can use muffler clamps to assemble it. That is the way I did my entire exhaust system. Auto parts stores have lots of pipe sections and adapters to make it work. I clamped mine because I was too lazy to drag out the welder.
