Exhaust advice for 2012 JK....

I have a 2012 JK (not unlimited) and am having trouble deciding on an exhaust.

The Gibson exhaust (17303 /617303) are only listed to their mfg page as for JK-U only. I can't find any audio to hear them either.

DynoMax has their 39510 and 38515 setups. I like the dual-out set-up more than a single because of cosmetic appeal. Again, no audio to hear what they may sound like.

I go a HECK of a deal on a Magnaflow 15115 system ($160 shipped) but since that is listed for a JK-U I don't know if it will fit either.

A. So, does anyone have any system install and if so, how do they sound?

B. Is it worth it to go with T304 or is aluminized okay (I am looking to keep it a while and I'm moving to WA in July)?

C. What could a simple cherry bomb installed do for me? I don't mind if its fairly loud. With the exception of the long roadtrip to Seattle when I move, I shouldn't be that picky about drone.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I have the magnaflow on my 2010 jku .. it sounds nice when u get on the go pedal with little drone while cruising .. its not the little muffler ..more like the suv series.

My stock exhaust sounds great. Most of the aftermarket junk sounds like a RICER with a fart can. V6 engines will not ever sound like a 8. If I want more noise I just crank of the sound system!

That's great. Not trying to mimic a V8, never even had one. Currently just sounds a lot tougher, nowhere near a ricer at all.
