Whats a good muffler for a ZJ?

I ran a Thrush Chambered welded muffler on my Jeep SJ and liked the sound...

But I want something different on the ZJ.

Im getting a new Cat from NAPA, and they offer a catback complete system from like Dynomax or MAganflow...its affordable, but Im not sure if it sounds good.

Im thinking Flowmaster Series 44Delta would sound good...but maybe too loud.

Anyone tried the kit from NAPA?

What is everyone else running on a 5.2L ZJ?

Magnaflow high flow cat converter and flomaster orginal 40 series on my 5.2. It sounds awsome but it may be a little to loud for some people.

Iv got a muffler delete with stock cat on my wj i have vids on my build thread and it is loud but sounds good IMO. But if you dont want it to loud I would recommend a flowmaster 70.

I ran dual flowmasters 40's on my 67 Tbird, but that was a BB Ford...they sounded really mellow, not loud at all. Then I hear them on a truck and they are obnoxious.

Ill probably end up going with a Thrush 17655 Welded 2 hamber muffler and a new tailpipe assembly, and the new cat...I know it wont be loud enough though.

Its the same kit that napa sells.

I can get it for like 108 dollars. But you say it sounds pretty good?

many people have posted their before and after exhaust clips on you tube. you'll get an idea of what a variety of different mufflers, bottles, and straight pipes sound like. flowmaster 40 would be my vote

Based on that, a Series 40 would be too loud for me, seeing as it would be my Daily Driver.

Must be a kit that is not available for a 93, because a summit search brings up Dynomax Performance 17403 - Dynomax Super Turbo Exhaust Systems - Overview - SummitRacing.com

as the only kit with a pipe and a muffler.
