Red face Yet ANOTHER exhaust thread

So, first let me apologize for doing it again. I know there are a bunch of threads out there for exhausts and I've watched videos until I'm blue in the face. I felt as though I needed to enlist the services of WranglerForum one more time to get some input.

<---If you want to do this, I understand!

My criteria: Inexpensive, bolt on (as in I can do it with minimal tools; e.g. no welding), won't negatively effect ground clearance, gives Jeep a deep, low rumble.

What I think is my best option right now: DynoMax 39522 Ultra Flow

If anyone has any other videos I may not have already seen on YouTube, please share. This looks like a pretty solid option for a decent price (especially with the rebate offer they have going on right now).

I've got the aFe Mach force XP and like it a lot. As far as installation, it was pretty simple on my 07. The only things I had a problem with was the front most stock clamp and some of the hangers. Because of the positioning of the bolt in that clamp, I used a sawzall to just cut the clamp off. The hangers were a little tough, but a spray lube and some elbow grease got it done. Just follow the instructions and remember to position everything before bolting down.

Tom I have the Dynomax Evo Comp. The same one you are showing. I love it (the wife hates it. She likes quiet). Even though there is low drone its not overbearing and doesn't sound like glasspacs when you throttle down. Plus I got tired of always pinching my tailpipe while rock crawling. This is one of my favorite add one.

I have a Dynomax 17345 on my TJ that got in 2012 with a killer rebate. Other than having to cut the rusty pipe off the muffler and play tetris with the catback to thread it into place without resorting to lowering the axle, it was easy. Nice rumble and I swear I have more power in 5th gear up hills. That's a TJ though. On a JK, YMMV.

I just went through same process. My first choice was the magnaflow/Dynomax before axil drop. After hours and hours I decided to go with the Dynomax 39524. I decided that in northern WI it's not the best to have the exhaust dump out under the jeep. Some say it causes premature rusting.

Don't forget about this too!

Performance & Sound Guarantee

We challenge you to try our DynoMax® performance mufflers* risk-free for 90 days - if our products* don't meet the challenge, call us for your money back.


It's about a 6 or so out of 10 on "noise" I run the system on my 2013 JKU that exits out the back, the "rock crawler" system and love it. I can hear but once I get off the gas nothing.

Is that system completely bolt on? How is the clearance on it? Pics?

Removing the stock muffler is a royal pain in the ass. Be ready for that! I suggest lubing up the hangers with WD40 or something similar and have a pry bar on hand. That was the hardest thing about replacing the exhaust on my '12, and it was new! BTW, I have a Gibson (not the MM), and I love it.

What was the cost of the Gibson? How would you describe the sound?

I think I paid like $270 on Amazon. I think it sounds great! I watched a lot of Youtube videos and thought the Gibson sounded the best. It doesn't pop or sound raspy at all, and I don't think it drones. It does have a nice deep sound inside the cab when you have the top down. With the top up and doors on, you can hear it but it's not obnoxious or very loud at all, you just know you have an exhaust. It sounds good and looks good! It's the dual exhaust with the polished tips. I didn't get the metal mulisha exhaust with the huge grapefruit shooters for tips.

This is the clip that sold me on the Gibson. Sounds just like that in person.

I really like the sound of the Gibson... how's the clearance? That's the thing I like about the DynoMax is that it doesn't get in the way in the back...

For Comparison, here is the DynoMax video... it's in a enclosed space, so it's hard to tell what it would be like in open air. Sounds really nice, though.

The Gibson is a lot smaller than the stock muffler but is still tucked up in the rear. If you want the ultimate clearance, get a muffler that tucks up above the rear axle and exits there.

Man I just posted that video yesterday, fast find. Just a heads up, this is the system that exits all the way out back.
We are working on more sound clips too.

I think I like the sound of the full system that goes all the way back.

That's what I have and love it. I drove 18+ hours to go to the King of the Hammers and I could hear the system when I was going over passes but just cruising very chill.

Is there a direct OEM style (routed/sound/look/No clamps) fully stainless steel catback exhaust replacement for the Jeep? I am assuming the stock one is a rust magnet in a few years.

i think dynomax sounds amazing, and for the price. i don't like the exhaust tips sticking out under the rear bumper. one let down off a rock and CRUNCH. dynomax is $180 on amazon and it sounds great.

while i got the dynomax people here, if you are sitting on the trails, with the exhaust dumping where it is under there, do you notice any extra fumes as the drive or passenger? i can't imagine you would but still curious. sometimes you will sit for several minutes or an hour in one area watching or helping or recovering and i would hate to get the exhaust headache.

Not really, but if you are sitting for a long period. Turn it off.

Hey DynoMax, the folks from Morris 4x4 center were supposed to get a hold of you to see when they would be getting more 39523's from you because they're out of stock. Still waiting to hear back from them... any oversight on that?
