daggo66 Cat back just sounds so much cooler.

DragonNester This is the unit I was referring to in the above post. It's listed as a cat-back system, so I guess, generally speaking, anything from the cat back is considered a cat-back. Sometimes they list axle back systems which I guess can be considered a cat-back as well. Although still somewhat confused, I ordered one of these for it's looks, simplicity of installation and sound. It wouldn't be the first mistake I've made if it doesn't do it for me.

DragonNester I heard and saw a Corsa axle back dual tail pipes/one muffler on YouTube and thought it sounded really good...deep and throaty! Corsa claims no droning, also.

Anyone using this set-up?

The length of the exhaust AFTER the muffler gives more resonance/tone and eliminates the "Ricey" sound of the jeeps 3.8L v6-

It might not be the most efficient for extreme off roading but I spend the majority of time on-road so there is a bit of a trade off. I get a lot of compliments on it. There really isn't much exhaust going back to the cat. So, you don't have to do that if that's not what you're interested in.
---BINGO--there's something sweet about the sound from the twin pipes and you get rid of that huge muffler hogging the rear end-
