nicolas-eric Support your drivetran when you remove ths TC skid. Itīs easier to rech the bolts at the cat/muffler on that way.
Here are some pics when I removed my muffler in 2007.
I also needed to loosen the rear driveshaft because there was no other way to get the muffler and end pipe out of there.

Ok well how much shit am i in if i already removed the 3 bolts on one side but not the other - the skid dropped about an inch but i have since bolted it back. Am i F**ked or is there no harm? I put it in gear and nothing seems wrong with it.

4Jeepn Hm, not sure I never had to deal with a TJ muffler. Could you just cut it after the cat and then fit in a new juction there?
