Weld in a muffler?

Thinking of changing out just the muffler on an 02 Mountaineer. Anyone have a hookup on cutting out the old and welding in the new if I bring in the truck and new muffler?

cut the old out and using clamps is byfar easier than welding

+1

With something like that, I'm sure that it has some mileage. Cut off the old, clamp on the new. Faster, cheaper, and will still last pretty long. If you want help doing it that way, or if you really want to go the welding route, I can help out.

Do I need a tailpipe expander to get the job done? The vehicle has about 60K.

probably not. Get your muffler - a universal will probably do. You can always get a 4" from Vatozone to make that expansion, if needed, for $5 or so.

Edit: I like Walker direct replacement mufflers
