Here they are. I have a Flowmaster 50 series on the V6. I used stock tubes, aftermarkets should run and attach in the same line as stock unless it's a full cat back (then you have to worry about bends from in front of this first picture)

Front Gasket


Front Weld


Rear Weld


Rear Exit


Sorry about the bad contrast and healthy coating of mud. It was a VERY simple install if you know how to weld (I do not, and I do not own the equipment to do so, but I watched the shop guys do the job). They plasma cut the old muffler off (takes 4 min) made sure the new muffler fit inside the cavity (should never be a problem for aftermarket over stock) and welded it straight on. Fairly simple, they charged me 50 bucks for the work and I was on my way. I got my muffler online for $70 plus shipping NIB. So grand total $120. If I had the V8 I would have gone with a full system from headers all the way back but with a V6 it's just going to make it sound nice...or like a V8...stock :-/

Canadian, only the 5.7 exhaust has the resonator from what I can tell but the Hemi Exhaust should work for all of us with 4.7L. The MBRP exhaust says it for for 4.7 or 5.7.

The Borla (and probably all others) attaches at the flange forward of the existing muffler, and replaces the entire stock pipe behind it (including resonator). It wouldn't be too difficult to do on a newer Jeep, but once those bolts are frozen on there it was impossible for me to get them off (Jeep is three years old) so I had to go to a professional (e.g. someone with a lift, torch, and pneumatic tools).
