I had great success with Borla cat-back products on other cars, I would have to look into their product for the JK when I am in the market.

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. Seems aFe doesn't have a whole lot for a 2 door.

I just ordered this system as well. Anyone else that is interested check out 4WHEELONLINE.COM. Their prices seem pretty awesome, I paid $292 w/ free shipping. I haven't seen it anywhere cheaper than that. I think you may have to sacrifice some shipping speed though.

Same here, I hope it sounds good when I get it on. Its tough to tell from the youtube clips. Be sure to let us know what you think when you get it.

I just pulled the trigger on the axle back version. $280.38 through Amazon with free shipping.

I didn't want to remove both the resonator and the muffler. I'm hoping there will be a little more sound.

Search around, there are plenty of coupon codes, try insure30. Or click to get a free newsletter and you get 15% off your first purchase

Some link on the anythingauto site gave me 17% off, you have to search around for it

I cut and pasted my cart here

"(MACH Force XP Series - Cat Back System) 2012 Jeep Wrangler Qty: 1 $314.10 $260.70"

Good luck!

Search for "afe exhaust" on the anythingauto website and it will link you to 17% off
I ordered mine at 1030pm and got a tracking number by 330pm the next day
However, if you look at their reviews on yelp or google, they're not a very reliable company based on those online reviews

Installed it today

Took about 2 1/4 hours

More than 2 hours was getting the stock exhaust off with soapy water, wd40, grease, ball joint separator (don't ask), and a large cresent wrench. And that was just the drivers side. Passenger side I said fugg it and cut off the hanger with a dremel (only cut half into the hanger, it simply broke off after that with some elbow grease). To remove the muffler from the tail pipe, just a ton of wd40 and rotate back and forth.

Hint: if you do this in your garage, put some cardboard down to soak up the wd40 (doh!)

Took 15 min to install the axleback. Greased the hangers and they slid right in

Sounds great, somewhat noticable and I have top off, carpet off, drainplugs out. Sitting in the driveway, I had to tell myself I heard it. Drove around the block and it is not bothersome at all. My wife, kids, dog, and neighbor will appreciate that it is not booming loud. Very Very subtle if you ask me
