IRO Cat-back exhaust

Hello,
The muffler on my 00 xj is completely rusted out from the cat back, and I'm looking to replace it. I was looking at Iron Rock's cat back system because the price seems reasonable. I want it to sound good, but not drone inside the cab. Does anyone have any experience with the baffled muffler of flo-pro one that it comes with? I'm kinda leaning towards the baffled but I'm not really sure. Could anyone else recommend anything else? I don't want terribly loud in the cab, but sounding good on the outside would be good.
Thanks!

Believe it or not, my 24" cherry bomb fart can does a pretty good job. It sounds half decent and since it's pretty long it quiets it enough for my taste. Best part was the $23 price tag.

That appears to be the Heartthrob kit and the baffled muffler is most likely their HVS series. Now that I see they make one for the Cherokee I'm pretty pissed about getting the Dynomax kit because the HVS is a VERY GOOD sounding muffler once broken in. You'd need to verify that with them though. ****, wish I had looked around more....then again my Dynomax was like $80 after rebate. I can see myself getting one of those anyway at some point.

As far as the Flo-Pro you'd have to ask them which model they use because they make a few different ones that are standard designs suck as turbo muffler, Borla/Magnaflow style, Flowmaster knock off, glasspack, etc.

Did you weld it on or clamp it? And it comes with an adapter to use it with the existing 2.25" pipe right?

i dont remember if it came with the clamp or not... sorry. it was in the spring. i clamped it. i always clamp exhausts since its always easier to get it apart again when you need to. have done many exhausts and have seen no advantage to welding besides the cleaner look.

Thanks. I figured I would clamp it if I didn't like the way it sounded or something

Im running the IRO catback..considering changing the muffler out sounds too much like a V6 firebird...but it does sound throaty/deep. Ive gotten compliments on it but its on the list of things to change
