    Writing this only because I could not believe the lousy packaging job they did on my order of catalytic converters (right and left sides plus a new muffler).
    First off they told me delivery would be by FedEx. Ended up one box was delivered by another unknown method (GLS Trucking) without any notification / thus I believed I received only 1/2 of the order.
    Second, the packaging of the part delivered by FedEx was the worst I have ever experienced / most of the cat was sticking out of the single-ply cardboard when it was delivered. Hoping when my mechanic inspects it is not damaged.

    When shipping a thousand dollars worth of exhaust parts one would hope that they would have taken the time to package it properly, which they didn't.

    Great pricing but beware before ordering to ask them to properly support heavy odd parts.

    Whoa,
    Those are expensive, did you go OEM or aftermarket.
    Who did you order them from.
    My check engine light is on saying a faulty cat.

    These are for my 2001 F150 King Ranch / not the 2005 Liberty. But I went with aftermarket as the OEM were close to 3 times as expensive for the same results. The manufacturer is Evan Fischer. They look well made.
