        5 1997 Wrangler - RockBottom Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

        Great fit, sounds good!

        I'll start off by saying I mated this to an aftermarket long tube header on my I-6. That being said, every exhaust part was new. So, the header, this crossover and cat, and MBRP cat back and my inline 6 cylinder sounds MEAN! The install was super easy, again because the old exhaust was saws-all'ed off (LOL) and it passed e-check no problem.

        5 1997 Wrangler - gwells402 Installation Time: Afternoon

        Great Catalytic Convertor

        This this is amazing with a straight pipe after the cat. It gives your jeep the sound that its balls dropped. At low rpms it sounds like a truck and at higher rpms it sounds more like a sports car. The other bolts people are talking about do help but i managed to get mine on with the stock bolts. LOVE THIS THING!!!!!!
