I purchased this porduct because I needed a new Converter and while I was at it, I decided to get a whole exhaust. Product says on site that it will be a direct fit for a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.2, in fact it will not. Upon opening the box by Dynomax, it even says only fits 93-97. The tail pipe hanger is off a few inches and is pointed in the wrong drection. Fortunatley I called and the techs here and they gave me a return label so no extra cost to me. YES, I do have to order the new items, I will get the same muffler Dynomax, 17747 but I will get the Walker 54079 Tail Pipe that is the correct fit for my car.

I will tell you that the pipe is good looking and well made and the muffler is separate in the box with 2 clamps, just did not fit my car.

In the end just double make sure you do your research, though my order was not correct, hard to blame since even Dynomax says it will fit. So I don't balme entirely on Advance Auto Parts. Be warned ths will ONLY FIT 93-97 Jeeps

This entire exhaust replacement to include the "Cat" is not as easy as it looks. Especially when it has to be where one is on one's back with limited floor clearance. I would not recommend one take on this project unless one has all of the correct tools and a good place to work on the vehicle. I did not notice any instructions which caused me to incorrectly install the muffler with my first attempt. Not being a mechanic by trade I learned once one puts on the "clamps" it is next to impossible to remove the system. None-the-less I succeeded in doing so and now I have a perfect install. Would have been a nice touch to include some rudimentary instructions for the novice installer.

      Even with 1 review saying this Cat Back system wouldn't fit my '95 Grand Cherokee Laredo I tried it anyway. PERFECT FIT! The replacement time, using a floor jack (lift body - not tires)and an impact gun, took 25 minutes. Very easy 1 person job. Price was right, service at store was excellent and the online info was spot on!

          This unit is well built and a great alternative to the heavy restrictive OEM muffler and talpipe. Gives a nice deep exhaust note but not too loud.

              It worked out great. Very easy install. It has a good deep tone around 1.5-2 rmps when accelerating then turns to a peaceful quiet tone when cruising at highway speeds.

                Comments about Dynomax Exhaust Systems:

                This catback system does NOT fit the 95-98 Grand Cherokee models regardless of engine size.

                A call to DynaMax confirmed that they do not offer a muffler or catback for these model years. I found this out following a review (the day after I made the purchase).

                The muffler is the correct length, wrong width. The tailpipe is all wrong, bends, hanger location and angle. Bought the Walker offerings and am happy.

                  As previously reviewed (the day after I bought this) it will not fit the 95-98 Grand Cherokee's as the website states a Direct-Fit. The muffler is the right length, wrong width and the tailpipe is all wrong. Bends, hanger position and angles do not match. A call to DynoMax confirms that they have not mufflers or cat-back systems for these model year Jeeps.

                          A:

                          Know this does not. There is no need for a gasket unless you are talking about the one and only gasket that is used at the point of attachment where the front (before the Cat. Converter) exhaust pipe attaches to the manifold. That is the only place needing a gasket. Once more if one is careful in removing the old pipe the old gasket is still perfectly fine to use. A replacement gasket for this install costs about eight bucks. The rest of the exhaust parts go together and are sealed with threaded muffler brackets. I would suggest none of the muffler brackets are "tightened" until one has achieved a perfect fit and alignment. Once you tighten up the brackets and should you have made a mistake you will have a very difficult time trying to pull things apart and refitting. Good luck with your project.
