Talking Can somebody find me or make some FAKE catalytic converters for my offroad Kooks?

Hey everyvody i've had my Kooks headers sitting in my garage for 2 months now and i'm about to put them on very soon along with heads/cam/intake....

I bought them without cats cuz that is the way to go BUT i'm a little concerned due to recent happenings....

I recently got a ticket......but not your normal ticket.....i got a state referee certification required for emissions(no officer sign off).......which means i had to bring my Jeep back to BONE STOCK and pass an emissions check through a scheduled appointment through a state referee......WTF!!!

So anyways i took off my Bwoody, oil catch can, and bwoody manifold spacers.....and i FAILED because i THOUGHT i could sneak by without a PCV hose which i couldn't find.......

The drive was 100 miles and now i have to wait till the 24th to do it again but it's local and no more $30 fee.....i passed smog the first time

ANYWAYS......before i put there KOOKS on i was wondering if anybody could fab me up some MOCK or ILLUSION CATS to weld on to my midpipes so i don't get my Jeep another one of those tickets or WORSE...impounded

I'd like to have them in factory location if possible or where kooks cats usually go.....

Name your price and let me know what options i have......

THREAD COMING LATER ON STATE REF TICKET........theres more and a ticket 4 days prior to that too for ALL my tinting....non correctable.....DOH!

Thanks

Never tried it on newer vehicles, but on older cats you can take them off, bang with a hammer and shake the guts out or use a large screwdriver to smash them up & shake out the pieces, that will turn them into a piece of straight pipe basically

Holy **** Paul. Wow. Maybe you can go to a junkyard get a cat from a car, then cut it open, take everything out and weld it on the Jeep? Or did I say something real stupid.

Prob won't find any cats in a junkyard. They are actually pretty valuable now and some are being taken off of cars and sold to scrap yards. It's as crazy as the manhole covers and a/c units for copper. WTF!
