|baytownbert||Sounds nice, but give me a quiet Jeep every time, especially if I am on the trail.|

My wife doesn't care for you guys any longer......
I just bought the stainless Gibson from Amazon.

I have the same Gibson on my 07 - love the way it sounds! I've heard several different other brands that make your rig sound like a little mail truck, but the Gibson rocks & is relatively cheap compared to the others as well.
I installed myself & it took me literally 20 min tops... as simple as it gets

|I8up||Truly awesome sound, Hook'em!|

|bama2012rubicon||I bought the aluminized version from Streetsideauto.com $261 shipped. I like it so far.|

|Braveheart12JK||Sounds and looks great! I went with the Rugged Ridge polished stainless split dual system and removed the resonator and welded in straight stainless pipe. It sounds a bit quieter than yours, slightly more throaty with some deep low key drone at highway speeds. I love it! I'm a fan of loud exhausts though. I also noticed the tailpipes on yours look exactly like the ones that come welded to the RR system! Looks great dude. I'm a perfectionist too. Had to have them even and dead-centered!|

|Casotakar1229||sweet, sounds good. I am not sure I'd want it for my jeep yet though...gotta do my other mods.|

|Belto||when I first test drove a JK back in 2010,, I tested an 07 with the gibson setup and really liked it,, now with the 2012... been missing that sound ,, definitely one of my to do's|

And I got it very cheap on those links I post, $256 shipped, versus Gibsons $400.

|bengen1||Dang... you got the exhaust I've been looking at too...I need your money|

|New2012JEEP||Thanks Ricc, all that talk on YFE thread has me back to thinking about CAI...Sigh...|

|Riccochet||Sounds good. I'm sold!|

|New2012JEEP||Thanks guys, ya it does seem to be a nice powerful note, and is constant(VVT?). You don't hear valves chiming or anything.|

I also have the Gibson set up on my 07 JKUX 3.8L 6 speed, it was installed by the PO. I was worried it would sound too much like a Ricer with a Fart Pipe (I hate those things !!) But in honesty it doesn't sound too bad to me ( and I'm 62 yrs old ).
I have ringing ears ( Nam 69-70) so noise kinda irritates me a little. At certain RPM's the Gibson sound kinda resonates a little inside the cab (Hard Top). I don't know how much this will be a problem if at all, while crawling around a trail in 4 LO..... No tires so I'll have to wait to find out.
So far around town and the few drives I have taken in the woods on logging roads, it seems fine.
As for a performance increase ,I cannot comment on that since it was installed when I bought the Jeep....
Possibly the Resonation may go away with a little bit longer pipes on the exit side, get em out beyond the bumper a little more, but then that ads to other issues off the road.... "BH"

hi, if you want it to sound great drop a v8 in it, that will do the trick,
the gm ls1, ford 5.0, hemi...all great, just kidding ...sounds good..

|c0d3x5||their description says it for the 3.8 did u have any problems with the 3.6?|
|02-19-2012 11:27 AM|
|c0d3x5||lol i havnt bought it yet.. just seen it on quadtratec for around that price i think..|
|02-19-2012 11:14 AM|
Gibson directly sells for close to $500, plus shipping. I just got the aluminized, and threw like 3 coats of rustoleum high heat all over it before install.
Part 17303 is aluminum, part 617303 is stainless, fits both JKU and JK.

|tcass||looks and sounds great. did you do the install yourself? @ how much did that set you back? just got some material from banks for my 2000 RAM 2500 5.9 Diesel. just opened it and noticed it didn't contain any price quotes. guess i'm going to have to call too. might see what they have for the rubi while i'm at it.|

|Blackened||Sounds good. Now if only someone would post a banks I would be able to make up my mind.|
|02-19-2012 10:08 AM|
Here is a picture, just noticed video didn't capture whole thing. Mine came out centered perfectly, some people last year had issues with not being centered.
