Gonna sound rookie...Exhaust ???\'s

I'm about to return to the states and need to do some exhaust work before I take my Jeep (94 YJ, 4.0L, 5sp) to Germany with me. I spent some money calling shops near my parents house. 2 different shops told me that no one makes a "bolt on" Cat back for my Jeep. They both want to slap on a house muffler, cat converter and bend the pipes.

On to the question part. I'm trying to find dimensions for the stock exhaust. I need specs for
1. Muffler (the muffler itself and in/out-lets)
2. Catalytic Converter (is it bolt or weld on?)
3. Pipe Diameter

I'm also curious if anyone has a Flowmaster 60 series (or bolt on cat-back)on a YJ, and thier opinions. Found pleanty of opinions on CJs (maybe that should tell me something...nah, Square is the way to be)

Sorry to ask such lame questions but my Jeep is in the states and I'm in Korea.

I've got a Borla cat-back on my 88...bolted right in. My old muffler had more rust than anything else so it was a PIA to get out...lots-o-sawzall work. The Borla sounds a bit deaper than the stock and is stainless so it wont rust...It's held up like a skid plate to rocks...

Re: Gonna sound rookie...Exhaust ???\'s

I don't think this sounds rookie at all. I think it is a very good question. I am not really sure what the weather and road conditions are like in Germany. But if they get snow, and they use salt... DON"T GET A BORLA
Don't get me wrong, the Borla is a nice item. Build in CA for people who live in CA, where the roads are dry 80% of the time. When running a borla where there is snow and crud. It mise well be made out of tin foil. The PO put one on my Jeep just befor he got rid of it. Man I had nothing but trouble with it. The header has about 4lbs of weld on it to correct all the holes. The muffler fell apart. (Like wet corn flakes)
I now have a Flowmaster, I can't remember the model, but it is 13 inchs long. 2.5" center in, 2.5" center out. It sounds great, and it has been down there for 2 years without showing any signs of crapping out any time soon. I am so happy that I will run flowmaster for ever. I got the muffler, and brought it to a shop, and had them bend pipes. Do the homework and find a good shop, it will make a differnce in the quality of the instal.
Good luck.
