You should be able to find clamp on tips in 2 1/4" similar to this:

The reason was because my cat was busted and rattled and annoyed the shit out of me so I had a guy just cut it off and re-weld it. Wish I could take it back lol.

Well sitting at a stop light it's going to stink you won't really be able to stop it. Did you put a turndown after the transfercase skid or did you take it all the way back? Straight pipes aren't such a great idea though, I hope you don't have smog checks or inspections.

Strong exhaust smell in cab.

My Jeep is straight-piped so my exhaust smells really strong. Since it was straight piped, that strong smell leaks into my cab every time I slow down. Where is it probably coming in and how can I prevent this?
I have gaps in my Jeep where my drain plugs go, my door seals are missing so air is sucked in there, and I have a soft top which air travels through
