Dynomax versus Borla. Legano versus Magnaflow. Cherry bomb versus Flowmaster.
You get the idea. Also, Axel Back versus Cat Back?

Quality, looks, ease of installation, longevity, power increase, ground clearance,
and sound.
Cat back probably the most efficient for a small power increase.
All welded together system, stainless steel best for longevity.
IMO, every system will be a little louder than stock, and probably will have a little drone at a certain RPM.
We chose a Magnaflow axle-back system in polished stainless. Installation was quick and simple (20 minutes laying on the ground). Am extremely happy with the results, looks, and sound.
We've been off road here in Florida ( no big rock areas) with no clearance problems.
Price match, or shop for discounts, will probably get you a better deal.

Ditto on the Magnaflow axle-back exhaust (that Carols Jeep noted), except I got the black painted stainless. The install was easy, the appearance/craftsmanship is excellent, and the sound is good. Kind of a "porche" sound. No drone ! Another benefit, to me at least, is I now hear the exhaust and it helps me with my shift points. Best price I found was thru NorthRidge4X4 and they gave me a $250 gift card too.

I was looking at the Pypes exhaust system. More reasonably priced than some of the other options.

ALL my vehicles from racing to off-road I have relied on Magnaflow.

On my '01 Camaro SS (775rwhp/rwtq) that's about 920hp/tq at the flywheel... we dynoed a Magnaflow system against open headers and had a 1hp/tq difference at the rear wheels.
It doesn't get much more freer flowing than that.

The day I sold that car, I left the garage door open and the keys in it and told the folks picking it up that I wouldn't be home. I knew If I heard it start up the deal was off.

When asked, I can recommend things that I have used personally not just something I read somewhere.

I would do the aFe High Tuck. In my opinion, no need for an exhaust on a Jeep to do anything but get out of the way... Even though the aFe sounds great too. I probably would even leave the black tip off...

Thants for the advise. I installed my new Dynomax model 39528 yesterday. Wow. Awesome sound and no drone. one issue I have. When I try to install the tips,the clamp when tightened as far as it goes, the tip still is not secured. There is still a need to tighten it further. Any thoughts?
