Open front ends suck... Looks like you need some lockers...

Exhaust Help

just a quick question for you build thread viewers out there, i need a new muffler at the least, as you can see on page 3, and have been presented this exhaust system by a few people in another thread i posted.

DYNOMAX SUPER TURBO CAT-BACK EXHAUST SYSTEM

again, im not looking for really loud crap, like flowmaster. just maybe a slightly better sound, and some increased performance.

anybody had experience with this system or is there a better one out there?
and should i run it behind a high-flow cat? like magnaflow?

thanks for any input

-Sean

That exhaust isnt to bad from what I read you'll be happier with that than the others out there. All heresay but they say you get more power from this muffler than from a flowmaster. I personally run a super 44 flowmaster and really like it. In the beginning it was a little anoying but as it broke in it mellowed out. The highflow cat is gonna give you more performance but will increase the sound a little. Worth it. Small compact size, hard to get something up that high to damage it

Jeep looks good, looking at the same lift myself.(except looking at the x-series) Are the pics with the lift schackles and coil spacers? Or just the lift right now. Have you flexed it yet. Would like to see some pics disconected and flexed to see how the tires fit with present setup. Also how does it feel.(ride quality)?

To many questions..

thanks for the input on that exhaust system. im really leaning towards it... i just dont want to smash it this time... haha. seriously.

presently those pics are with just the 4.5 full spring. i like it a lot for the ride quality. of course it will be no RE super ride kit, but i dont mind it slightly bumpy when i hit bigger bumps. i also like it because i can do 40mph and do some swerves and it doesnt feel like its gonna flip on me (which might be normal but this is my first lift). at least it will be like that until i disco some time and cruise like that.

as for disconnecting and flexing it out, i havent done that yet. ive got a lot on my list and havent had a chance... maybe when i get the spacers and shackles on i will do it. the shackles come in nest week sometime. like friday probly. NEXT, friday. maybe a day or so sooner.

but i will get a fully flexed out pic up eventually. and if youre going to run a 32 or 33, id go with this kit if your budget is limited. its my dd also and i think it rides fine for quality. thats my take on it.

-Sean

Try this link if it works than it will send you to a place to listen to other peoples exhuast. Kind of cool, They will have all the different setups you can think of.
http://youtube.com/results?search_qu...b&search_type=

Ok tried the link again and it wont take me to the right spot so if you click the link type cherokee exhaust in their search bar and it will take you there. Sorry for running you in circles.

By the way when you go to install the schackles disconect your sway links and take a pic with one front tire on the bigger log than after you put on the extra lift do it again so we can see the difference it makes. Cheep easy way to get a flex pic.

i dont know..in my opinion a flowmaster 40 sounds best. then again i like loud exhaust though haha.

dynomax sounds doesnt sound as deep.

Flowmaster 40's are alright, I find them a little raspy with the 4.0L. I have a magnaflow on mine (dual chamber I believe...not the oval straight thru)....sounds very deep at idle and stays moderately louder then stock till about 2K....then she REALLY opens up. I love it.
