I just picked up the Catalytic Converter
walker for $165 and just checking here, will I need to replace the sensor
as I know most EXHAUST parts tend to snap off when trying to remove
100,000 mi I will think its on there good
whats a fair price for this sensor

I've seen them for anywhere between $50-100. When I had to swap mine over to a new cat on my TJ at 75,000 miles, I didn't have any trouble removing it. I'm not sure if I just got lucky or what. When you reinstall it, be sure to put some antiseize on the threads (the threads only) so you don't have any issues if you need to remove it in the future.
