Question i cant decide on what exhaust!

i cant decide on what exhaust to get!

ive posted asking whats the best exhaust for a 4.0L once before but i didnt really get that much input. so i figured i would try again.

im looking for a nice deep mean sound but i dont want it so loud that i cant hear my radio while cruising around.

what do you guys recommend?

Flowmaster super 40 or super 44. They sound good on jeeps and aren't super loud.

I've got a Borla header with a Magnaflow cat back. It's not loud at all but has a rich deep sound to it. Better gas mileage too.

Cousin has a Flowmaster Delta 40 on his I6 cherokee. Sounds beastly, for an I6. I think the Super 40 is less aggressive than the other 40's, but don't quote me on that. Look it up on Flowmasters site, they have a list of their mufflers with volume/noise ratings for each muffler.

Jsm*** has a Flowmaster 50 on his TJ and it sounds really nice. Not too loud but has a good tone. I am thinking of switching to one of those myself, or a 40... I like loud, just not sure with a 6 cyl..... Loud V8's I'm good with.

the only way you will give the advantages from any muffler is to install a header.
and if you can't afford both do the header fist and the muffler later.
i went with the pacesetter with dura coat

I have a MSRP exhaust and it sounds great at the lower speeds but is quieter on the highway for those long trips. You can also hear the radio just fine, its easy to install, its a catback, and is very well priced.

I went with the complete Banks Monster exhaust including the header and installed a Random Technology cat. Pretty simple to install but it is loud. Definitely freed up some hp's. As a DD I'm sure my neighbors must be pissed at 4:30 am. I wish I saw this post before buying it. Maybe this will help you decide. Jeep Wrangler Cat-Back Exhaust Shootout - Jp Magazine

If $$ comes into play. Dynomax if offering $75 rebate on thier cat back, I was thinking about changing out when I came across your thread. Jeep Cat-Back Systems - Quadratec.

Only thing about the Dynomax exhaust is they say its almost like the stock exhaust. im not looking for the loudest exhaust out there but i dont want anything that sounds almost stock.

Stick with the OEM header, a quality CAT, and then follow it with a Flowmaster 40 series. Sounds great even on the 4.0. A more grown up sound.

I have a Flowmaster on mine with the factory CATs.
I was disappointed in the way it sounds.

It doesn't have what I consider a good sound, more like it's asthmatic. It's not a nice deep sound but not like rice either.

I have a buddy who removed the rear CAT and runs the same muffler as mine and his sounds pretty darn good.

If you remove the CAT then you have to weigh the enviromental impact of the diminished effectiveness in the vehicles emissions system against the way it sounds and decide which is more important to you.

If that's a worry, get their ultraflo. I have their super turbo, and it's not the loudest, though still louder than stock, but the ultraflo supposedly sounds pretty good.
