TJ Exhaust

Hey Everyone! This is my first post because I usually lurk around and look at everyones post. I really want to get a new exhaust for my 05 TJ and was wondering what everyones opinions were. I want a deeper tone and not crazy loud but I don’t want to spend an arm and a leg to get one. Can anyone steer me in the right way? Thanks.

I went with a thrush welded. After 20% off at advance Auto they are pretty cheap around $30. Nice sound to it but not terribly loud.

I bought a Dynomax cat back a year ago when they had the rebate. Slightly louder than stock, easy to install.

No, I usually buy Flowmaster Delta 40 and Super 40s. Delta 40 was slightly deeper than stock and the Super 40 had a loud drone from inside the Jeep. I liked my Banks Monster exhaust, but they're a little expensive for me. I'm looking at the Walker Sound FX right now because they're under $40 with Advance Auto's online 25% off coupon.

The pipes on my 99 TJ were in good shape but the muffler developed a rust hole. I cut the muffler out and welded in a magnaflow non stainless magnapack. Muffler cost about 30 bucks and sounds amazing. Not overly loud, good deep tone and doesn't pop or cackle except for a little gurgling on the downshifts.

FYI: you don't need to do a full cat back system. You can simply add a performance muffler. I've used both a Magnaflow glass pack and Flowmaster (I don't recall the model off the top of my head). Both sounded fantastic. I would err on the side of an aggressive volume because the 4.0 is inherently very quiet.

I have had the Thrush Welded for about 5 years. Probably the best $35 I have spent on the TJ. If you want a low tone rumble sound, there is no reason to buy anything else.

I put the MBRP black cat-back exhaust on about 3 weeks ago. Has a nice sound over the stock muffler. Not too loud either. Also like that it relocated the tip from downfaciing in the rear to out-facing behind the wheel.

Cut old one off, clamp new one on
Just look at your existing one, make sure you get the correct sizes pipe, and location (centered, offset etc).

You mention clamp new one on, but the description is welded on muffler. Do they sell kits to install without welding?

Can you go into more detail when you say slightly louder than stock? My current muffler is separating at the seam of the shell and producing some drone. I prefer to not really hear the exhaust inside the Jeep unless I'm REALLY on it, or for people to hear me from very far off because most of my wheeling is in national forest and loud vehicles are just more fuel for the tree huggers to get trails shut down.

I don't notice much difference. It is just a little bit louder, I would say. Not obnoxious at all. It's a smaller muffler than stock but it's not like a glass pack or anything.

If you're still in the market for an exhaust take a look at our Flowmaster Force II Cat-back System.





Our Force II Cat-back will have a fairly moderate exhaust note, perfect for a daily driven vehicle. This system is built from 409S stainless steel and is covered by a lifetime, limited warranty.


If you need additional muffler options please feel free to PM me or give us a call at 707-544-4761 for answers to all of your exhaust related questions.

That just means the muffler itself is welded instead of roll crimped together. The Thrush Welded can be clamped on or welded on.

I have the Trush I just bolted it on with clamps. I don't like it because I've and Flowmaster 40s in the past and much prefer the sound.

I know older thread, but applicable,,, does anyone know if the 2005/2006 2.4L TJs use the same single side cat back exhaust systems as the 1997-2004 2.5L engines?

I'm looking at the MBRP S5500409 2.5" Cat Back, Single Side Exhaust System (T409) (Flowmaster to pricey for my tastes and will cut into my winch fund) and I find no reference to the 2.4L engines.

Is there a simple bolt-on (clamp-on) flowmaster for the 4.0?

Right length and all, not needing any extensions, etc?

I think most muffler mfg's are pretty much generic. There are straight thru outlets, and offset outlets, round body ie; some Thrush and Cherry Bombs, and the flat style. They are usually available in various lengths and pipe diameters.
Measure your existing muffler length to determine what length muffler body length you need. Remember though to also measure your exhaust pipe diameter. You can use clamps to bolt them on though welding is the better way... no chance of the clamps working loose...One way or the other. Muffler replacement is not a 'plug 'n play' operation unless you are extremely lucky as it usually involves some existing exhaust pipe removal or replacement. For the cost and and avoiding hassle unless you have a welder and the necessary equipment, having a Muffler shop replace your mufflers is the way to go IMO. They will have or can get quickly most any make of muffler you decide upon. My personal choice is Dynoflows or Magnaflows, but these have always been used on V-8s. Every Flowmaster I used, again on V-8s, have always created a cabin drone at certain rpm usually at cruising speed, they sound good but the drone is a killer if you drive any distance at speed. You want in your face loud use Thrush or CherryBombs, they can make an engine sound outright nasty on acceleration. The only V-6 I ever had was on a sand rail using a Buick. We flipped the headers up ala boat style and I ran short Cherry Bombs straight off the headers...ungodly loud! But in the dunes you could hear the buggy coming...LOL
