The Rugged Ridge Vortex muffler is constructed from heavy-duty, 14-gauge aluminized steel and is seam welded and offers reinforced inlets and outlets. The muffler offers a deep, throaty sound, without drone, that could easily be mistaken for a V-8. We had planned for a bolt-on install but decided to have the muffler and pipe welded in when it became obvious that a new catalytic converter was needed. The heavy-duty muffler should also withstand trail abuse much better than the factory setup.
