muffler

I recently purchased a 2002 TJ 6cyl, manual. I noticed the muffler is in bad shape. I don't want it to be loud, maybe juast a little more throaty than stock. Can anyone suggest one?

Thanks,

Magnaflow, it'll be a bit deeper but thats about it. Actually if you have a stock exhaust system all the performance mufflers will be about the same. If you want it louder your going to have to upgrade the entire system. I've got Banks Headers, a Magnaflow designed for a V8, a 4" racing Cat, stainless flex pipe (to help stop the headers from cracking) and a CAI, with all that she sure sounds unique but it wasn't cheap. The cat alone was $200, got a deal on the muffler $50, the headers where $475, stainless flex pipe $80 plus the cost of getting it all welded up.

Make certain you check your State regulations on exhaust. Some are more restrictive than others. What may be advertised as a "muffler" by a manufacturer may not meet the legal definition of a "muffler" in your State. Many of the mufflers are packed with steel wool type material which burns out over time and becomes louder. The typical "stock" muffler will have a series of chambers and baffles to reduce the noise.
Hate to see you waste your money on a muffler to be told later you need to replace it.

I got my cherry bomb turbo for about $30 from jegs. Not to loud, can still have a conversation at highway speeds with the top up/doors on.

Flowmaster 40 series. Throaty but won't rattle your fillings like a glass pack.

If you don't mind buying used parts... the PO of my Jeep had Nissan mufflers installed and it gives the Jeep a nice low throaty sound.
