Cat to exhaust flange broke

I consider myself an advanced DIYer, yet I'm stuck here in deciding this; hit a massive pothole last night and all the sudden, sounds like I'm on the loudest Harley ever. Check under the cab; my tail exhaust has been separated from the cat flange both sides are essentially disintegrated and this was only a matter of time, though I likely would have heard the leaking at some point.

TLDL; what do you think is a good, quick fix? Cut off old flanges and weld on new ones or those split clamp exhaust flange things? I don't go off roading so it doesn't matter how pretty it is. What about the best gasket? It looks like a graphite one is the most recommended.

Can you weld? If so cut and sleeve. A shop charged me 20 bucks for this. Then I later added a flange for $40 installed.

I've had one of those 2-piece replacement flange kits on my Tacoma for 4 years now. I've even taken it off and put it back on with a new rear muffler and it's holding up great. They are only like $20 MSRP and pretty much a solid and permanent fix.

I think this is the exact one I used:

After coupon codes it was like $14 for me.

I can but I don't own a welder anymore. Fortunately the shop by my house did it all for $50 (cut off old flanges, weld on new ones and new gasket). Works for me.

This was what I was considering and just worded it poorly in my OP.
