Check out Dynomax. Couple options plus a 90 day guarantee if you don't like the sound, you can return it.

Ran a Dynomax Evolution Competition (pre axle dump) for about 2 years, lost it's throatiness so tried out a single inlet/outlet Dynomax Super Turbo in the same spot. Sounded like a tame Evo Comp with more drone, returning that one. Now I'm running a Hooker Aero Chamber. With the pre axle dump, they all sound similar with a lot of resonance, I'm eventually going to dump it out the back.

Is that the 15160? I recently installed the 15160 on my unlimited 10A but the tail pipes don't seem to stick out as far as yours. My left protrudes slightly from the bumper and the right one is flush with the bumper.

I have the Magnaflow 15160 and I'm very happy with both the looks and sound of it.

Just put on an Afe 2.5" catback on my TJ and very pleased with its sound. Deep tone with a rumble, slight drone but radio can drown that out.

It is 15160. Had the same problem initially. You have to tweak the supports to get the right hang & angle. I chased it for half a day before getting it where I was happy and ended up using a breaker bar & deep welled socket to coax it all. I know, not the smartest. Had I started with that though, it would have been way easier.

I'm sure a muffler shop could square it up a lot quicker for little cost too.

I am wanting to get the MM gibson but I just dont care for the crome skulls on the tips. if the skulls were black or could be removed then i think i would like them much better. I found a couple of custom flowmaster setups on youtube that sound really nice

I hated the stock exhaust rock dragger, I can't see why anyone would want a system that hangs down that low with twice the outlets to drag on a Jeep. Each his own.

Its an easy job with plenty of room on a JK, had my longtime trusty exhaust shop do a cat-back with a Dynomax muffler placed at the the middle between frame rail and trans and the pipe end above the rear axle. Not everyone wheels the same, but its out of the way of rocks, sounds great, and spent less then an off the shelf bolt on. Just my two cents.

You can buy them without skulls in either black or not-black. I got the not black and it was a lot cheaper than the Metal Mulisha edition. Same exact exhaust system, just no skulls on it.

If you don't like the skulls, why not save the extra money they charge for the MM and just get the regular Black Gibson Performance? The tips are 4" instead of 5" but it sounds the same and it cheaper.

Yeah they are just held in with rivets.

I am wanting the 5" tips but I may sacrifice and go with the 4" for cheaper price. But the more I think about painting the skulls I kinda like it. Only reason I don't like the skulls is I don't want anything chome on my jeep. I am going all red and black.

That looks really nice, but I have to ask where did you get your red shackles from? I am wanting those for my new ace rear bumper I am hoping the gibson exhaust will fit with the ace bumper

I used Rustoleum. Easy to repaint.
