I just changed to the Dynomax Ultra Flow muffler and Dynomax tailpipe. I am happy with it. Probably not the cheapest, but definately not as expensive as Borla.

If you're looking for just any exhaust system, I'd bet a local exhaust shop or auto parts store could set you up with a turbo muffler for cheap.

I replaced my exhaust about 5 months ago with a cheap Walker system from Quadratec and it works fine. From the cat back (including the muffler), it was about $80, and the front pipe was another $30--that's it. I did later replace the cat converter with a high flow unit from a local supplier for another $90, but he worked with the Walker system and just welded the cat in--you can just use your old one if it's still good.

To be honest (and the reason I added the converter after the fact), initially I ordered the exhaust from Quadratec because I wanted one without a converter and it's illegal for a muffler shop to remove one--thus I had to do it myself. I had the muffler shop cut me a piece of pipe 32" long and I clamped it in place of the converter. With this setup, the exhaust really had a good sound to it, the equivalent of a "turbo" muffler as mentioned previously. However, I couldn't stop the fumes from entering the cabin when the rear window was rolled up (and the door windows open, too), and after my girlfriend griped about it for 2 months, I decided to go back with a converter. Even with the compact, hi-flow converter, there is no exhaust sound anymore, and yes, there is a slight/moderate drop in power (not that my engine is a powerhouse anyway), but all-in-all it's okay because all of the smell disappeared. If I ever have an older jeep that I can leave the top off all the time, I will get rid of the converter, but if you have a top on, it's tough to get rid of that carbon monoxide and exhaust smell. I've done a lot of modifications to the engine, so it's hard to pinpoint any one thing, but I feel like the converter is an improvement over the stock one--if you can't find one locally, order one from Rusty's Offroad. Plus, it's half the size of the original converter.

I dropped out fume tube about 2 months ago and put in a Cat-back 40 Series Flowmaster. It was about $130-150 bucks installed. Took lest than 15 minutes. And sounds super good. ITs not the sound of a V8 but it gives your jeep a meaty growl. I bet any muffler shop has Flowmasters. I got mine from Rick. Maybe your town has a Bob's or maybe a Mike's. Who knows???... Get that Flowmaster your Jeep deserves!
Happy Jeepin
