Turns out there's a piece of flange missing. Leaving a pretty huge gap between the pipe and manifold. So yes. I'll be replacing it. I don't throw good money after bad and I wouldn't waste the cash redoing the exhaust if it was a 12 flange gasket.

Right on Jerricho glad to hear you got it worked out!

And yes jeep ingenuity is what we all use no matter the model or engine or lift or anything else.

Is why I love this forum even when I am not working on my jeep I can read posts here and learn about what I will be doing in a few weeks.

Just went through this and wanted to ad what I had to do. I ended up snapping one of the bolts off of the flange. I spent the better part of the day soaking it with PB blaster and trying to wrench it out. I could not get it out. After taking the exhaust manifold off and trying with no luck, I took the hammer too it. Two whacks and it popped out. I have a 95, and apparently these bolts are not threaded in but have grooves. No matter how much you wrench it, it won't come out. It needs to be drove out like a pin. Hope this helps someone else out.
