Nice mellow tone and cannot hear it in vehicle going down the road!
It will fit perfectly in place of OEM muffler! OEM tailpipe is good to go, 2 1/2 inch all the way out to rear exit.

If you want to make noise, stright pipe and no muffler! :roll:

So when you say get rid of cat and choke point you mean cut it out and run a straight pipe to muffler (new flowmaster)
Does the straight pipe from sasquatch do that? https://shop.sasquatchparts.com/product ... k-exhaust/
Then just add the flowmaster and im done?

I do not believe his pipe gets rid of the CAT in reading the add. Looks like it is just to remove muffler? :roll:
Any muffler shop can supply a 2 1/2 inch pipe to put in place the of the CAT.
Cut pipe just in front of CAT and just behind OEM muffler, install straight pipe in place of CAT and install Flowmaster and connect it to tailpipe. Done! :BANANA:
Muffler Shops here do this sort of thing all the time! Save your CAT, they are worth money for scrap as they have valuable metal in them... :wink:

Yes, exactly!

Awesome! Seems easy enough at least for an exhaust shop. :wink: Doesnt seem too pricey either.

So that flowmaster isnt too loud and droney? I dont need to sound like a V8 or fast and the furious car. Just want more performance than anything.

Also while I got you where did you get your bull bar/brush guard? I got some hella off road lights dying for a home on the front of the Jeep and i dont want to drill into the bumper or anything. Thanks!

Not loud at all, nice mellow sound! Have to stand at rear of Jeep to even hear it at idle.

As to brush guard, think I got it off eBay way back when.
Walmart looks to have the best price right now or maybe PartsTrain.
Walmart #: 556117778 $278. and you can have it shipped to your local Wallyworld and pickup for free.... :wink:

Yes, exactly!

The sasquatch kit is a 4 ft section of stainless steel pipe and stainless steel clamps. It will replace roughly a 44" section of pipe leaving 2" at either end for slip-over. Which 44 inches is up to whomever cuts the pipe.

If you have a shop that will actually remove the cat, go that route. An actual welded in section, and properly hung muffler would be much more durable than band clamps. It might cost a little more, or maybe a lot less. It depends on the shop. Most won't have anything to do with removing a CAT so try to talk to them in person when no one else is around. Either that or cut the section out yourself (behind the flex section, to behind the muffler) then take it in that way.
I bought the Sasquatch muff eliminator kit, but ended up not using it myself. Not because it's bad in any way, but because I wanted it quieter.

:-)r "Individual Results Will Vary" :lol:

But yes, it should be both noticeable and measurable.

Got one more concern that just happened yesterday. If its ok to ask here or i can start another thread.

Yesterday when i parked my jeep after driving home from work, i noticed some water dripping off the bottom of the windshield washer fluid bottle. It had no smell and wasnt oily etc. Pretty sure it was just water. It only dripped about id say maybe a shot glass or two full then stopped. Today when i parked it at work same thing happened. Same spot. Roughly same amount. I havent had the air or defrost on at all the last few days or more. Engine seems to run fine and dandy. Should i be concerned? Thanks

The windshield washer bottle is right behind the bumper.
If its not the washer bottle leaking and its not coolant, then the only thing it can be is condensed water dripping from the AC lines.
But you said the AC has been off, so...

I'd check to make sure your radiator hoses are clamped tight and not leaking.

Ok i will check them. But if it was a radiator hose leaking would it just be water or would it be coolant/antifreeze etc? Also it doesnt seem to continue to leak after a bit. Only seems to leak after its driven. At least the last two days. Yesterday i stuck my fingers up between the washer bottle and plastic fender liner an inch or two and felt and saw kind of almost like a piece of black plastic bag that felt like it was holding a bit of water if that makes sense. Maybe it just collected some water when it rained or i washed it last and its finally spilling out? Just guessing. Thanks,

If you want to be sure about the cooling system rent pressure test kit from a parts store. Pressurize the system to 15 psi and go do something else (actually really only needs a few minutes). If you really have leak you'll see a loss of pressure on the gauge.

The AC always turns ON/Off a bit even when not switched ON.
They do this to stop moisture buildup inside the cabin.

Only way to stop this for a while is to remove the AC Relay from the relay box under the hood.

The windscreen washer container has the pump pushed into its side with a large rubber gasket sealing it off and there is a separate sensor sensing the volume of water in the container that likewise is pushed in through the side with a large rubber washer.

Check if either of these "Holes" are leaking. Be careful pulling the water height sensor out as it is a two-part plastic part hinged together...very easy to separate the two parts then you have to fill up the reservoir and wait for the one part to float to the top so you can retrieve it. Ask me how I know about this :wink:
