Afe intake & exhaust

After seeing several exhaust posts recently I thought I would add some pictures of my choice.
Some people have asked questions about which ones get it tucked up and out of the way (and outta sight).
These are stainless and have been on for close to 6 months now so this is what they look like after some use.
Sound is smooth and about as deep and powerful sounding as you're going to get with six cylinders.
Quiet/mellow sounding under partial throttle/around town and much louder/serious sounding under wot.

I'll also include a pic of the other end. AFEs cold air intake system really enhanses the engine sound even without the muffler. Together they make some sweet music....

Your Jeep is way to clean. Do you wash and wax your axles and shocks?


JK looks good.

Ah man! I knew somebody was going to say that..
Actually, I just power washed the underside at the local quarter car wash after being in the mud and then was under there adding some spring spacers at the front so I wiped her down. Anal I know but hey..

Love the set up and have been thinking of doing this. I want something with no drone on the highway, but opened up enough to "wake up" the motor.

This may sound odd, but the only thing holding me back on the intake is the "open-ness" of it. I guess I worry about water and mud intrusion too much.

Is that the 2.5" or the 3" exhaust?

It's a 2.5" There's no drone on the highway at all but I retained the stock resonator. The muffler is just the axel back setup.
The major increase in engine sound is from the intake and sounds good. The exhaust note at the rear is just a little deeper with a small increase in volume but not enough to be very noticable.
The intake is much more noticable, but under normal driving not objectionable. At full throttle it's down right scary. The thing screams! You would not believe it's comming out of a Jeep.
But like I said... that's comming out from under the hood, not the tail pipe.
The main reason for the muffler is to get it up for clearance and out of sight compared to the trash can sized stocker. It's also a lot lighter. I don't remember exactly but something close to 30 lbs lighter.
Neither is worth the price if you think you're buying a significant increase in HP. I have no doubt that there is some at high rpm where you don't spend any time but for normal use, improved sound and looks at the rear are what you're paying for.
As for water... You would have to be in some pretty deep water or really plowing through it to get water up that high under the hood. I don't doubt it could be done but I guess you have to ask yourself the question. I live in the south west where we don't have any water (except flash floods in a wash and I ain't going in there).
