I ordered this for my 1998 TJ, and after waiting for a month because of a backorder, it didn't fit. The 97-99 TJ's have a slip type connection at the catalytic converter, and the 00 and up have a flange fitting. AFE's 2.5 may of worked, but if they overlooked this then someone else will be getting my money. If you're looking at cat backs, and the brand doesn't have a specific part number for the 97-99, but instead has one part number for 97-06, stay away or at least inquire about it. I've wasted well over a month dealing with this.

What adaptor I would have to use so that I don't have to cut or weld anything to go from 2.5 inch to 3inch

Hello, You will need a 2.5 to 3 inch adapter. You may have to get it at an exhaust shop or local parts store. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask, Thank you.

Will I need an adaptor for 2.5 inch to 3 inch in order to install this? I have a 2003 jeep wrangler sport

Asked by David from United States on

David, the Afe MachForce XP Exhaust System will require an adapter if your exhaust is 2.5". I hope this helps!
