Noticed on my XJ the hanger rusted through the tail pipe or something...here's a pic:


It rotated it for some reason but you get the gist. I'll get it fixed right after the holidays (no time now), could I use some exhaust tape hold it together so the whole works doesn't fall off? Or any other ideas? I'd like to get it sort of fixed so it's not rattling while I drive it. Thanks for any ideas!

That's what I was going to suggest,some exhaust tape.

I think this would hold for several months. and is stronger than exhaust tape.

I find that patching exhaust is greatly facilitated by taking a long piece of Al foil and folding it over and over until you get a flexible 1/8" thick mat that can easily be molded; back it up with some hose clamps and a few snipped up beer cans as a backing and this can last for, in my case, years.

Is this forward of the muffler or behind it?

You can get a universal hanger like this for $5 and rig it up however you like:
