Our friend has Corsa on his two door! Sounds the best of all the ones I've heard over the years...
Most of them sound like cheap Honda bazookas going off......

I went with the Magnaflow offroad for a deep throaty non ricer sound.

Just put a Flow master 40 series on my 02 TJ... Down right nasty sounding. Even the guy at the exhaust shop was surprised. He said most Jeeps get the 80 series or Banks this is the first 40 Series he put on. I admit I was going at first with a Banks then just said F it and said lets open it up. Just over 100k on the engine and it has opened the mid-range and top end up. I understand why people go with flow masters now.

I think this is one of the tougher decisions as far as upgrades because the information is so subjective. I ended up getting a Dynomax 39524, which is most similar to the first Magnaflow you listed. It eliminates the resonator and exits out the back. I'd describe it as moderately loud, but possibly a little more subdued than Brians video above.

You didn't mention if you have an auto or manual, and I think this is really important. Its much easier to keep a manual in a rev range where the exhaust sounds the sweetest and doesn't drone. The auto likes to upshift at very low RPM's and just sit there when driven conservatively. This can be a nightmare if the exhaust drones at 1200-1500 RPM. I'd be very careful about choosing an exhaust that eliminates the resonator if I had an automatic.

This was my #1 reason for choosing the banks monster. It left the resonator in which would reduce drone. On the highway cruising I can't even tell a difference from stock however when I'm in town or slamming through the gears she sounds like... Well a monster.

Or you can do like I did...left the resonator in for 1 day after the install, decide it wasn't loud enough (for my taste) and weld in a straight pipe to delete it and enjoy the sound lol. Good choice on the Monster tho

It's a good sound but I was disappointed that it didn't line up right. They wouldn't remedy the problem either so I had to twist it so it didn't rest against the frame and tub. This left me unable to use the rubber support by the muffler. If I did it over again I'd save my $$ and have a local shop fab one for me. Also, you have to keep in mind that with the exhaust tip under the driver and facing the ground it is not quiet at all.

Thanks so much for the info. So many choices... I guess I'm looking for a simple install yet have the option to change back to stock if things don't work out.

Take your stock off after the resonator and drive it around. Won't be the same sound but it'll give you an idea of a louder sound. You can also find a local jeep club and go listen to various exhausts. Ride in or follow behind to get a listen under load. Never the same at idle. $3 to $400 is a lot of money to not like it.... IMO

^^ If you do any rock crawling or real off roading these exhausts will get demolished!

No they won't.......that's why the tips are not on.... it has been pushed up even with the frame...that is what the rubber muffler mounts are for...think about it !

Is that a 4.0L I6? ... If so, different animal.

Check out Dynomax too. Nice mellow sound and in no way annoying.

Boy howdy, a four liter - four cylinder engine would be one heck of a monster torque maker. Could you imagine the bore and stroke on that thang?
