I love Flowmaster 40 series. I've put them on every vehicle I've owned, except my Rubicon but it'll be on there before the summer. It gives a good little pep on the take off and has a nice mellow rumble to it. They run under $250 and most shops can install them for under that as well.

just go to a local non-chain muffler shop. theres a good chance you'll be surprised how reasonable an exhaust will be.

FWIW, I had a Dynomax muffler welded on by a local shop after I pretzeled my stock exhaust off-road. Honestly, I liked the factory exhaust better...more quiet. The drone gets annoying after a while. Keep in mind, the worst thing while camping in some beautiful secluded place is waking up early in the morning to some moron with a loud exhaust romping on the skinny pedal.

Ain't that the truth. And our access just keeps disappearing...

But in defense of jeeps... even obnoxious jeep exhausts I've heard don't carry like a "normal" quad or bike. Was at Taylor Park resevoir (near Gunnison), and the constant drone of quads and bikes off in the distance pretty much ruined the trip for me. I bet their days are numbered out there simply due to noise pollution.

Sorry to jack the thread!

Banks Monster. Jeep sounds sweet after about 4 months. Got to let the muffler pack in a bit.

I installed a flowsound exhaust about a month ago, if installed correctly it sounds identical to a flowmaster 40. Muffler shop only charged me 160 for everything including the pipe coming out from the muffler

I have a flowmaster set up. Not to spendy and has a great sound to it. Not to load or quiet. Get lots of compliments.

flowmaster super 40 with stock piping. You can get the muffler off of amazon for very reasonable, I also had a magnaflow universal cat installed since both my muffler and cat rotted out pretty much on the same day. Sounds very good, especially when the engine gets good and warmed up.

But, why the necro-post? I would hope by now he got his exhaust.

You never know, if he's like me it's still rusting apart under the jeep
