in search of muffler for my 95

So it's been a couple weeks since I found this lovely hole in my muffler... So Ive been looking for mufflers for awhile and not really sure whats the best to get I don't want to spend 80 bucks but I'm worried the ones I have found for $37-$50 aren't going to last as long. I'm just hoping anyone out there knows the goods and the bad's? My wrangler is a 95 Rio grande 4.0

Cheapest and best option is to just replace it with a straight pipe!

The straight pipe is also quite loud and can annoy some people, especially if you drive it on a longer trip. You get tickets around here for it, too. I run a $35 thrush welded. It hasn't rusted out after 2 years, and it gives it a good tone, and I get a little better gas mileage.

Girl, $80? For a muffler? I personally don't see that as being a bad price if it includes the shipping to you.

I wouldn't do the straight pipe thing, for one it gets annoying after a while, and another, most states it is illegal as well. If Ore, has inspection laws, it most likely wouldn't pass without a muffler. Besides the fact that the engine is designed to be run with the back pressure of a muffler in the system.

If you are afraid of spending $80 for a part on your Jeep, you might want to think about a different vehicle. Just sayin'. I have an 87, and I have spent over $10K in parts in the past 4 yrs rebuilding it one step at a time. $80 bucks ,,sheesh, I wish.

If the rest of your exhaust is good get a cherry bomb glass pack.

Not fear I guess after living with my dad for 16 years I got his cheap don't want to spend money mind set... I'm okay with spending money for something good. I guess what I should have said is If I can get a good one for $50 instead of $180 then I'd rather do that.

I don't put big bucks into a muffler. They are a replacement part that gets tons of abuse from the elements. I have had this muffler for over 5 years on my YJ. It's gone up a little...here it is in your area...NAPA AUTO PARTS

I can't see the price on the one from napa but it looks like the one I was looking at on amazon. It's called Walker 21200 Quiet flow and the price is 76. I figured if i can't make it sound like a v8, I'd try to make it so i can't hear it

I was looking at stainless thinking it would last longer. The one from napa would be the same as stock, correct? My stock muffler has lasted since was new so I'd be happy with the same.

Your welcome! Always ask if it has the lifetime warranty, sometimes they do.

As far as spark arresters. ALL of the national parks as well as most of the state parks require them.

As well as most of the state inspection laws. I know in Pa., the inspection law says that the exhaust has to be the same or close to original, and not leaking.

I did want to apologize for the way I sounded about spending 80 bucks. Didn't mean any harm by it. Just realize that a 20 something year old vehicle is going to require a lot of TLC. and cash. J E E P stands for Just Empty Every Pocket. True statement.

You got a lift?

I live in Monroe (you got a lift), I might have to become friends with you (and your lift) ! LOL! Know any good spots in our area?

Anyways seen you got your muffler. I've been running Flowmaster 40 and that thing takes a TON of abuse and still hasn't developed a hole. It's bent and slapped and scrapped 500x over but still no holes lol. Paid $50 for it on Craigslist.
