Update; I easily remove the old flange bolt/nuts and the old muffler and tailpipe. Tail to muffler bolts were pretty fused together by rust, so I just cut the tailpipe assembly to finally enable dropping the old pipes off.
According to instructions I installed the muffler first using anti seize on the flange bolts, but left it loose so that the tail pipe assembly could be wrangled in from center out to tail. One problem I have encountered is that the hanger stem on the tailpipe seems to be not high enough to reach the rear rubber hanger. Also a bit of a pain to position/couple both assemblies together alone on your back. Not sure if my rear hanger assembly is standard, so I ordered one from RN to see. Otherwise might heat/torch the hanger arm and bend it out, as the rear tailpipe is hitting the rear cross when I try to reach the hanger. Oh, a jack might be useful to hold the weight of the muffler while working which I will try today. 2hrs of work so far and a little frustrated by PIA in the most simple to assemble things...

Update; 30 mnts to get it mounted today. My sequence- feed tailpipe center to rear- let sit-mount muffler to center hanger-let dangle- position rear tailpipe-tie off with rope to bumper- connect muffler to tailpipe (use anti seize at coupling and bolts-do not tighten- connect flange to muffler -not tightened- raise tailpipe insert rubber hanger on tailpipe arm first, use heavy screwdriver to leverage rubber hanger unto hanger mount- make sure all is in position as desired- tighten flange/muffler bolts/nuts to specs (30lbs)- tighten muffler to tailpipe collar (60lbs)- disconnect battery and reconnect (reset comp) and done.

Note: my scorpion bumps made the tailpipe hanging a little harder. pi
pe is in a good position-not bad clearance- sound is good not loud-maybe a tinge over stock but not unpleasant at all-passed the wife test thumbs up. Truck seems to pull uphill a little better, overall pretty happy with this set up.

whenever I sell a car I spray lots of that undercoating stuff all over too. Just kidding, nice work, feels good to do it yourself.

this deal is still good with performance peddler. I have no affiliation with them, but they definitely have the best price. The issue may be that they (and every other reseller) can't get the part because magnaflow had no inventory of the cat back component in stock. I bought both the y pipe and the cat back through them after waiting for magnaflow to come though with the part.

No one else who had the part in stock was willing to match the deal. I was in no hurry. Shipping was quick, customer service was good.

Just thought I'd comment since it was a good experience.

FYI - Just ordered the cats and exhaust from Performance Peddler for $818.29 shipped. Was one-click away from ordering the Borla from AB until I read this thread. This has to be a great deal!

thats a ripoff IMO, I had that exact muffler and a tailpipe for less than 250. I dont see the reason to put that much in an exhaust ive smashed up three.....

Ive always liked the Borla though.....

That muffler can be had from Summit Racing and any exhaust shop can make you a tailpipe. They might even have a book full of fancy tips to choose from.

I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to let members know I just threw a Magna Flow Catback on my 1995 Defender 90 today due to reading this thread. I purchased it and had it installed in downtown San Diego for a grand total of $499.96! $350 for the muffler and pipe, $150 for the install. My good karma is finally coming back to me! Great independent shop too. Thanks Bob!

I was almost a little worried at the low price, but it looks and sounds perfect. It's mean and loud enough to turn heads if you want it to, but discreet enough to not be entirely obnoxious if you don't want to command attention. It's perfect, I wouldn't change a thing about it.

I'm having Bob put on some EBC Greenstuff brakes on all four corners next week along with some AB stainless braided brake lines.
