They installed a slightly larger Thrush muffler which was quieter but still had a good deep rumbly sound. I'm an old guy used to V8 engines and even to me my 4.0L engine sounded pretty good with that Thrush glasspack muffler. And its sound when connected to the 4.0L engine is not even close to the ratty sound of a ricer car.

Thrush has a cool logo too that hasn't changed since I was a teenager in the sixties.
I saw what these look like. How do you install them?

ok cool thanks

The TJ I bought had a banks muffler on it. I don't think it would have been my first choice. Had flowmasters in the past, but on v-8's that sounded awesome.

also guttin it, takin off the cats, or straight-piping aint a choice lol
Do you trail ride with 4x4 groups a lot? Cause if so you may not want to make it too loud. I for one would get a bit ticked off if I had to creep around the woods all day with a loud ass Jeep right in front of me.

Just a thought.

ok yeah i havent even thought about doin that. thats a good idea

Dextreme I agree with Jerry....hence I am super happy with the sound and price of the Thrush Welded.

If you want real diesel performance go see PPE diesel. They do bar none work.

Go dynomax turned down before the axle n call it a day.

On another note, I have had good luck with Thrush Turbo mufflers in the past for what its worth.
The real turbo muffler is the dynomax...

The resonance at highway speeds is tolerable...but a Magnaflow muffler will give you the same sound with less resonance. Either way it sounds good for a 6. Putting a snorkel on my current one so the CAI will be leaving for that project. Keeping a tail pipe with a tip will also move the resonance to the rear of the Jeep but i prefer not having to route the pipe. Everyone has their own opinions on this so you will see alot of diversity in this area. Personally i like to hear the exhaust when im giving it hell.
how much would all this exhaust system cost? and yeah me too i want people to know im comin when im drivin down the road lol

Just my opinion. I like my stock exhaust on my I6. I also have a 300 I6 in an F150 I've had since high school. Had glass packs, 3 inch straight pipes, dual exhaust, turndowns, beat out cats. I tried everything all sounded crappy and annoyingly buzzy and load.

Just my experience. I'd you want Loud exhaust go for it!
ok thanks yeah thats one thing i was worried about is overdoin it and sounding like the engine is bout to blow

Don't waste your money on anything else more than a muffler on a 6 cylinder exhaust system. The price of that muffler plus install won't be anymore than several hundred bucks.
