    Maybe as a "bolt on" or whatever, but since God gave us welders, any decent muffler shop should be able to install whatever muffler you want. :)

    Do you have a place that could give me a quote on just a muffler? They sell them through http://www.4wheelparts.com, but they are expensive...

    What about the fiberglass packing breaking down? I have been told that is a common problem over time with glass-packed mufflers.

    I belive they use a steel type packing. I havent heard of it breaking down. The fiberglass stuff, yes. It will burn out and get louder.
