Hijack alert.... Where do you all have your exhaust exiting the Jeep? I removed a bit of bad pipe and replaced the muffler on mine. Instead of running it up over the axle I used a turn down directly off of the muffler. I hate it. Just not sure if it should exit straight out the back or turn behind the passenger rear wheel?

Back to the OP question. I'm all for the quietest muffler you can find. No one wants to hear us on the trails. Fear the Greenies...

Once again, not to hijack but what is the difference between a yj down pipe and a tj down pipe? What does it add or change?

reply to some previous comments,
1.Mine is straight out the back but ends at the rear frame support or factory bumper plate whatever you want to call it, but it does not go past my after market bumper.
2.I have enough done to my motor that I want to hear it and damn does it sound good! LOL!
3.TJ pipe wraps around the oil pan not just straight across. Gets it up Higher

Run it out the back. I just bought this aftermarket tailpipe from Autozone for under $30. It's a stock replacement and you only have to weld it in. I will probably rent a tube expander then weld it in.

Ebay stainless steel with flex joints. like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Jeep-Wrangle...d5a972&vxp=mtr

$80, good enough construction. A die grinder will clean up the inside welds if needed.
Really how can you beat it for $80???

Not true headers have to have a carb# and bungs for o2s cats have to be California approved cats but everything back is up to you

I'm running one of these. I just wanted a manifold that wasn't going to crack at the collector like my previous two.

not exactly a muffler question, and dont mean to hijack; I have a hole in my exhaust, before the muffler. So i am going to replace my entire exhaust system, from manifold back. This is entirely new to me. I have a 2.5, fuel injected. It is registered historic, so technically, I do not need a catalytic converter. In this situation, what would you guys reccommend?

Technically you need a catalytic converter because federal laws super cede the state registration.
