Anyone have Banks MONSTER Exhaust?

Hi guys and gals! I was wondering if anyone has the Monster on a 4.0,and what it sounds like? I am looking to give the Jeep a good deep sound... I have had a Flowmaster 40 series on my my last TJ and just wondered if the Banks might sound any better? Thanks for any input!

sounds gangster... I'm still a fan of the no cat, straight pipe, cherry bomb on the 4.0 I6. Not a meaner sound in the world!

Yeah I have the banks monster exhaust on my 97 tj 4.0 i also have headers. It sounds good. It's not to loud and not to quiet. It's hard to explain. My whole inside is rhino lined and it's not loud at all in the cab driving...

I have the exact same set up and have a different opinion. Outside it sounds good and is not too loud, but inside while driving down the highway or on the gas hard mine drones way too much. I've even thought about wraping it in high temp exhaust wrap to see if it will quite it down inside the cab.

Where does it exit and where is your tip aimed? If it's not exiting straight out the back or its turned down at the tip that could be a big part of your droning issue. I had a Flowmaster on my old truck with a 3 1/2" turn down right off the muffler. Sounded amazing at idle and would rattle your teeth out at 60mph.

At first the exhaust was cut-off just before the tub and pointed straight out. Then I added a tip that extended it out about an inchpast the tub and pointed down. I was hoping the tip would quiet it down some while on the throttle but it didn't. I'm sure if the inside of my tub was insulated and carpeted it wouldn't be near as loud to me.

Try putting on a tip that exits just past the rear of the Jeep or at least dead even with the rear bumper that doesn't point down...the turn down tips are so effective at adding rumble because of the exhaust tone bouncing off the pavement. Only problem is when it bounces off the pavement, it echoes back inside the vehicle. That may be your problem. If you make it exit straight out from the Jeep where it can't echo off anything underneath, it MAY give you a lot more tolerable highway noise.

None of those shiny Borla, Banks, etc. cat-back exaust systems have anything over what you can get made up at your local independent muffler shop for probably half the cost. All those catalog and magazine ad exhausts have are higher costs and cool-looking ads.

Find a small independent non-chain muffler shop and tell 'em what you want, they'll take good care of you. And if you don't like the sound, they can install a different muffler at little to no extra cost. They can add the cool looking chrome or stainless steel tips, whatever you want.

I'd never buy a mail order exhaust system.

I've got the Bank's Headers, Magnaflow muffler and a 4" High flow Performance cat, It sounds similar to the one in the vid but mine is a slightly higher pitch, has a throatier/raspier sound especially when crawling in low gear. I've been told it sounds all out mean as hell when I'm giving it a bunch of throttle in lower gear fighting over or through an obstacle.
