Dugzilla Ordered one of these on Friday at 20% off too. I considered the Red Rock one, but decided to buy the one I wanted. Saved some decent money on other mods, so I splurged on the exhaust.

I find the stock exhaust to be 'whiny' at higher rpm's. Think it looks and sounds like shit. Again, it's not that important. If people are putting on cat-back systems and it sounds worse, reduces gas mileage even more or lose torque I won't do it anyway. Just wondering if there is a "good choice" out there.
I bought the redrock, I believe that's the one you are referring to. A breeze to put on. I like the sound, not too aggressive, doesn't sound ricey at all, looks great. negative is a little drone...I like it, wife doesn't of course... here is a pic, it's on a 2015 JKU Sport S

Thats probably what ill do, and hit it with some high temp paint.

mistert Thanks for the sound clip...I ordered one last Saturday.

ET550 Does anyone know whether there are any fitment issues for the Magnaflow 15160 on a JKUR 10A/X due to the different rear bumper?
03-03-2014 05:15 PM
14Sport Sounds like it. Gonna be close but I think you will be good. I don't know how much it bounces around when running as the isolators are rubber for a reason. Good luck.

Thank you so much! My hitch brake light is about 30.5" so I think this could work.

I installed the Magnaflow 15160 on my '13 JK and it's awesome. I like the sound and the look. It certainly doesnt sound like a big block chevy and I had no illusions that it would, but it gives the jeep a nice exhaust note - especially when accelerating at highway speeds - I'm sure it's my imagination, but it certainly feels like it has better acceleration too. Installation was simple. Less than 30 minutes.

I also installed the Quadratec reciever and there are no clearance issues at all. And yeah...cheaped out and didn't buy the 5th wheel/tire - kept the original spare... hahah

shin0bi1 I love the sound, the looks, and no drone! However if you are serious with rock climbing them get something that doesn't stick out as much. I scuffed mines up when I go crawl inclines

I've had mine for almost two months now and would absolutely buy it again. No regrets at all. But I've always had some form of aftermarket exhaust on my vehicles.

Three months now and I love it every day. My favorite modification.

Unless there are some dyno proven power/torque gains, they just don't seem worth the expense. If, on the other hand we are talking a bit of extra clearance... Then that makes a little more sense.

Of course above all: to each their own.
It's not going to be the best application for everyone. Like you said to each their own. All depends on what you are planning to do with your Jeep. Personally the system is exactly what I thought it would be and I love it. Gives my ride just enough attitude.

Mr Breeze Magnaflow usually makes claims as to HP and Torque improvements over stock systems. They have some in house testing dyno charts you can pull up here:
MagnaFlow Dyno Results

They don't have this particular axle-back system as one they have tested, so until someone actually does a dyno test, it's no doubt a matter of opinion if there are any performance gains.

This particular one might be more about appearance and sound than performance (particularly, since you are still left with the "kink" in the pipe just behind the axle, which remains with this axle-back muffler) But I like the look, and a bit more rumble when getting on it, without added droning at highway speeds (the wind noise and tire hum is enough). My concern is if it lessens the departure angle since the tips hang below the bumper. I have a receiver hitch on mine, which would be about the same as these tips, but I'm not worried when I scrape the receiver, but might be worried about damaging the cool black exhaust tips.
It will be interesting to hear real-world experiences.

Excellent, that's exactly what I hoped to hear.

I hope forever. It's meant to be black. I think I remember reading that its a ceramic powder coating.

Mr Breeze Love the look, have been considering the same, but just not sure if the tips will be smashed when rock crawling. I've also considered a pre-axle dump system, but a few more concerns with that set up: 1) more droning sound as it's under the body and the sound bouncing off the pavement. 2) the exhaust being under the passenger compartment and potentially affecting the driver/passengers when crawling or idle. 3) The additional dust that would be kicked up when trail crawling here in Arizona.
