i have a borla exhaust system on my rubicon 4 door. although it is a beautiful system, i dont like the way my jeep sounds which muffler will make it louder and, what about a straight pipe sound does anyone have a suggestion to get the jeep louder:dance:

i have not added a single mod to my jeep and won't until kids are out college, so take this for what it is worth. my opinion, borla is a great system, but i would hate to spend big bucks on something that can get easily damaged on the trails. jeeps,to me, are about capability off road, not sounding like a sports car. i would put my money into mods for protection and capability. remember, my opinion only, not trying to flame or looking to get flamed by anyone.

I am pretty sure that if you don't have some type of back pressure from an exhaust the Jeeps computer will dis-own you.

I've always changed my exhaust. But with the jeep, it will stay stock. I don't want the ricer exhaust sound on my 4X4. I miss my G8 a little. :-O.

there's tons of buzzy little ricer rockets running around my town....they all seem to think sounding like that is some kind of achievement. No offense intended, I like deep mellow tones myself but am unwilling to install something this early in the service cycle. My 08 Sahara just barely turned 21000 miles and I have other places to spend the money.
In my buddies first jeep in 1960 (a 45 CJ2) he ran a straight flexible pipe off the manifold for a while after the original muffler rotted off.
Loud, annoying, bothered the neighbors and his parents enough they finally agreed to pay to put something quiet on it.

I have a Flowmaster 40 on mine and sounds awesome, with the 4 door you could even mount it under the drivers side rear floor and run dual pipes muffler back at any good shop and it will sounds amazing. I put up a video of mine on youtube, but they sound better in person, there is almost no real comparison.
