new exhaust system suggestions

i have the stock exhaust system on my 2006 wrangler. Im just looking for a new one that will give the car a deeper, more powerful sound. I have no idea to what would be a good system as i have no expierence with any other systems. any suggestions would help. And id like to know if its possible to put a dual exhuast on a tj. id love to do it but can not find anyone who sells one so i am guessing they are not made

With the TJ's being an inline motor, any dual exhaust would be a 1 into 2 or a dual outlet muffler. There isn't really enough room for either of these options under our Jeeps.

There are a few different Exhaust Systems that will give your Jeep a throatier sound though. Check Youtube for sound clips and you'll find something you like. Let me know if you have any questions or would like a quote!

Except that the 4.0 has two outlet pipes from the exhaust manifold/ header, so you could easily have a true dual system custom made at most any exhaust shop, but with no real benefits

My son put the Banks Monster Exhaust on his 2003 TJ. It sounds great and he likes it very much.

Where exactly would you run two pipes? Can't split before the belly skid because of the front driveshaft. You could maybe split after the belly skid but you're going to have major clearance issues with the arms and driveshaft trying to cross over. You then have clearance issues with the exit because the gas tank.

Clearance issues are a pain as it use with one pipe. Two pipes? No way. It's certainly not trivial.

What are we splitting? Two outlets on the manifold, two pipes back. Yes, it would be tight, but there's nothing to split.

The main point is, someone said that there's only one pipe because it's an inline engine. There's two. And, there's nothing to split.

I have a Bank's Monster on my 97 with a turned down exhaust tip and a Bank's Monster on my 05 with a straight exhaust tip. The 05 sounds awesome. Really like the deep throaty exhaust sound from it. For some reason the 97 is not as throaty. Both are 4.0 engines. Very happy. My wife and I were in the woods climbing a hill in the 97 the spring after I finished the 97. 3/4 of the way up the hill she said, "this thing sounds like a monster now". She had absolutely no idea what kind of muffler I had put on it. LOL

You're correct for the later year TJ's. I was only thinking of my '98. It has a one piece manifold with out outlet and one cat. Sorry for the confusion!

The 05 may sound different from the newer style manifold as well as the different number of cats. I have Banks Monster on my 98 and loved it. I recently replaced/upgraded my intake manifold to the newer style like your 05 has and the sound wasnt a significant change but i definately heard it get more deep and throaty.

Interesting, thanks for the input. Didn't know that. Makes a lot of sense.

In my strongest possible opinion, I would avoid looking to buy a bolt-on online purchased exhaust system. Did I say I recommend against a mail-order exhaust system?

The reasons are several... 1) If you don't like the sound of what the UPS truck delivered, what are you going to do about it? Remove it and ship it back for a refund? I doubt that is an option. 2) Online systems are more expensive than what you can have installed locally. 3) Local muffler shops can advise you on a muffler that will be what you're looking for. 4) If the muffler they installed isn't making the sound you want, they can swap in a different model for usually no additional cost.

I needed to have my exhaust modified to fit after installing a long-arm suspension on my previous TJ. A local muffler shop did all the work including the Thrush brand muffler for $85. The first Thrush they installed was a little too small and thus too loud. They then swapped in a larger Thrush that was just right and produced a good sound. All for the original $85. Granted this was 11-12 years ago but...

The bottom line is I would ONLY go with a local muffler shop for this. Go with a small independent muffler shop that will treat you much better and charge far less than one of the large chain shops like Midas that I would avoid like the plague.

P.S. Your local muffler shop can install just as cool of a stainless steel tip as what sells many buyers on the online exhaust systems with the pretty pictures.

I get mad initially with some of Jerry's posts, because I have done many of the things he criticizes. I am loaded with Optima batteries, I have two Banks setups, etc. There are more examples. I get mad because he is criticizing what I have done in many cases, but after thinking about it, he is always right. I have a 1976 Chevy K20 that I have 7/8ths restored. I did exactly what he talked about with the exhaust system on it. It has duals that now truncate in front of the rear tires and we experimented with a couple muffles and that truck today sounds extremely tough. Love the sound. The engine is a 400 small block with a 4bbl. Sounds like the good old days, really roars when you get on it and the idle is awesome too. I paid less for the dual exhaust then I did for the Banks for my Jeep. Lessons learned.

I had our local custom exhaust guy do a full exhaust, from manifold back, (NO header), but a good, hi-flow CAT, and a DynoMax WELDED muffler. Sounds SWEET and it's only a 2.5l. Guys who know jeeps couldn't believe it was a 2.5! They say, "it sounds 'different' for a 6cyl., but that isn't a 4 cyl.! " .
