New exhaust system

Ordering how much the parts would be for a new exhaust system and how difficult a job it is for someone who is kind of new to this type of thing. Please don't rip me apart I'm just trying to gain knowledge. Thanks

Check online for parts prices. Quadratec can help.

In order to replace the exhaust manifold (headers) you have to take off the intake manifold as well. They share some bolts and the same gasket.

Bwoods... Do an online search. There has to be video of the process somewhere. Hunt down a field service manual etc. Ask lots of NOOB questions. This is how I am learning. 1 rusty bolt, at a time. hell before buing my Jeep, i had never changed oil in a car. Oh yeah and You get to spend lots of money on tools... Good Luck

If you are looking at a new downpipe, catalytic converter and muffler, provided that the bolts aren't rusty at the downpipe or at the catalytic converter, it isn't that bad of a job. Simply turning some bolts. But if you've got some bad rust, you're gonna have to deal with the rusty bolts which is never really fun.

A muffler can be done easily if you have a portable bandsaw or a sawzall. Just cut off the muffler and clamp on the new one.

New exhaust manifold (i.e. header) is a bit more complicated than the above options.

And as mentioned, if you're going to be doing work on your own Jeep, it makes for good reason to "invest" in the necessary tools to help you get jobs done
