It depends on what you want to get out of it. If your going for more power you won't get much for the amount of money you put into it. If you just want a beefier sound an intake and exhaust would do that but again it will cost a lot and there are different ways to go about it.

If you just want a deeper sound the Cat in my opinion would be the best way to go. The intake will make a better sound (mine did) but you won't notice it unless you listened to a stock jeep sitting next to mine, even then it's not that big of a difference. The cat should sound better for the money.

On my current Jeep I just have a K&N intake which gave me the slightly deeper sound and no more power (waste of money). My last car had intake and cat and the cat overpowered the intake.

I wouldn't call it great but it's what I got and I'm hoping someone a little more knowledgeable will chime in.

I just installed a Banks cat-back exhaust on my '99 last weekend and am very happy with it. Quite a bit louder than stock but not overpowering and it seemed to take away the flat spot in 3rd gear that my Jeep previously had. The butt dyno seems to say that the Jeep has a little more pep but that could all be in my head since the majority of people believe that there's no noticeable power gain from exhausts. The install was a PITA though! Took me about 3 hours because I had to cut off the stock exhaust due to rust. A sawzall and cutting wheel will be your best friend during the install. Overall, I'd say do that exhaust if you're looking for a deeper sound from your Jeep.
