Cracked my exhaust

So Friday it got really cold in CT. Half way through an hours highway cruise I notice my car was getting louder. Rolled down the windows and I could hear my car sounding like a tractor which told me my exhaust cracked. I would like to get it repaired and was wondering if anyone has ever had an aftermarket exhausted repaired from a local exhaust shop like meineke?

I has a 42DD catted downpipe and a magnaflow catback.

I want to say find the issue visually and make sure itís a ďcrackĒ maybe the bolts are loose where the clamps meet and if not and itís indeed a crack, just JB Weld it or wrap it for now. Unless you have the cash to swap the whole thing. Up to you bro. Sounds like youíre assuming thatís all.
