Muffler repair?

I just noticed a small hole in the rear muffler on my 02' Overland. I want to try a repair/patch vs. buying a whole new setup. What have you folks found to work well?

Re: Muffler repair?

I believe that hole is supposed to be there if the hole you are talking about is the same one I am thinking of. It lets water drain when the exhaust isn't hot enough to evaporate the moisture.

To answer your question, I haven't found anything that works better than welding if you want it to last. I am sure that maybe there is some kind of jb weld that might work for just a hole.

If its a perfect round small hole its to drain condensation don't repair/patch it.
