2002 2.5 4 cyl exhaust discontinued?
I have a 2002 TJ with the 2.5 4 cyl. The muffler is rusting out and needs to be replaced, but the clamp to the cat is too rusted to be able to remove it, so it looks like I will need to replace the cat and the front pipe.

I have been having a lot of trouble finding the cat and front pipe. None on the local parts shops even list the parts for the 02 in their computers or books. I called the dealer and was told that the the cat and front pipe were one unit, but it has been discontinued and is only available from a 'legacy' parts supplier for $1200.

I have been able to find kits for the TJ 2.5, but they all say they are for 97-00. I can't find anything for the '02.

Does anyone know what the difference is with the '02 and why the 97-00 kit won't fit? or if pipes from any other year will fit?

Just cut it off with a sawsall at the clamp and an have an OEM replacement welded in. If you want so low rumble sound, get a Thrush Welded for $30.
