Exhaust ideas,

Hey everyone, im considering changing out my exhaust and i would really like to know what the best thing i can get is.. I do plan on a larger lift in the future so it would be nice to already have this set. Plus id like to get a couple extra horsepower and of course id like some noise...

Id really like a simple install, i have tools for cutting and know how to weld but im really looking for a bolt on considering the jeep is practically new. Please help!!

remember: just because it's LOUD, doesn't mean it sounds GOOD.

Ditch the cats if you really want any gains. Stainless headers and true dials all the way is what I want.

More air in and more air out = more power.

Yes duals. With some nice baffled mufflers. Not glass packs which will burnout and sound bad.

If you toch the catalytic converters, you're asking for STATE trouble, but

I've got Flowmaster 40 DUAL cat-back with a great/loud/rap/burble sound and got rid of the "HUGE" stock tank, hanging in the assend !!





SS tips



I don't know if there's more power, but it feels good/sounds good and handles bigger tires with ease--no drone, if you don't overload the gear/speed-

Sort of true but there is a peak at which the max air in and out are met for the application and you will no longer increase power.

I've got a buddy with a muffler shop, but I wouldn't accept any SUPER price breaks, cause he had two guys working on it-and had to pay them, so the total cost for everything, was $400 bucks

They had never done a JK muffler setup like this so I did the layout and bend points-

It worked out great, after two years, no leaks/vibrations/heat problems, we used some of the heat shield from the stock muffler, to shield in the new muffler position !!

You can put the NEW much smaller muffler, in the stock position, but

I'll tell ya, you can't get any DUAL EXHAUST sound, unless you have at least 6 ft of "DUAL" pipes, for harmonic/pulse /sound reverberations-sounds like BS, but it ain't !!!

Don't know, this was in Ca. and he had Flowmaster/Delta/ and some cheap ones, being a muffler shop-everything was there-don't know the individual prices !!

The Flowmaster 40 cat-back was the right physical size to fit in that spot--ya gotta checkitout-

I'm biased, because I've used Flowmasters on most of my muscle cars and I was addicted to the sound !!

I just added this week the Airaid CAI and the Magnaflow cat back set-up and love it, not too loud until you get on it and on the highway it was a good smooth tone.

I have the Gibson Dual Tip Exhaust and love it. Gets fairly loud some times but I enjoy the rumble and sound overall. Definitely turns heads and feels great to drive

I have a Borla exhaust, and love it because I don't want it obnoxiously loud, but sounds beefier than stock.

I haven't had any other exhausts, but my Gibson Dual Tip is pretty loud. Don't think obnoxious though.

Dual exhausts on wranglers is about the worst look out there....WTF up with some people!

Best thing to do is get rid of that big trash can muffler in the back! Anything smaller will do.

Power wise,,, well your cant polish a turd!!!!!!!!!
