Hello everyone, I see a ton of threads on which is the best exhaust to get and seems like people seem to really like the mangaflow. However, as I have given up on caring about any mpg and trying to go for more smiles per gallon, what is the meanest sounding exhaust? I know it's only a 3.6L V6, but just curious as to what is out there that makes my little two door sound meaner.

I went with a pypes catback exhaust. Its mean alright, enough to want to rip out the ear drums on the highway... :blackeye

Sounds fantastic during low rpm and idling. I think it all has more to do with exhaust design. mine is a straight pipe with a glasspack for a resonator... Ouch.

You want mean, put an old big block Chevy in it :)

Yep. No way to get a V6 to sound mean. Just loud. And when you make it loud it will just sound like someone giving you the raspberry.

The only way to get a mean sounding JK is to swap in a V8. Or get the quietest exhaust you can, put in a CD with exhaust sounds, and crank it up.

At the end of the day you have a fairly mild V6 and will sound as such no matter what. The magnaflo has a nice tone and looks very clean from behind.

The borla climber sounds nice. Too loud for my taste so I built my own quiet system.

"Meanest" sounding exhaust

I also have the Pypes cat back single exhaust, I am very happy with it.

I run a 12" Glasspack on my JKU. Sounds good, no drone and screams when I floor it! LOL

Here's a question. Why are there so many "cat back" systems for the JK / JKU that are not actually "cat back" systems?
To be a cat back system on a JK / JKU it would need to include the Y pipe as the cats are in front of the Y pipe. And it would either need to include a loop delete pipe for the left side or include a new loop.
I declare Shenanigans!
