How to make my WJ sound better

I want to make my 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland V8 4.7L sound better. Is there any easy ways to do it, or is upgrading the exhaust the only option? What about an exhaust system gives it its sound? Is there something I can do to the stock muffer to make it sound better? If I buy a new exhaust what should I look for?

Without buying a exhaust you can just take a hacksaw to you exhaust and cancel your muffler. I put a flowmaster super 44, but if you don't want to buy nothing that's something you can consider. Just keep in mind California doesn't look kindly on people with no muffler.

Pretty damn easy. It will be loud so the Kalifornia commies will probably pull you over on a noise violation or something, but IMO straight pipes on a stock motor sound like ****. Save up 75 bucks for a Flowmaster.

$75 for a Flowmaster muffler? And it will sound badass?

It only takes like 2 minutes to go on youtube and find what you're looking for. There's like 1000 videos of people showing off their new exhaust on the 4.7 WJ.

Exhaust it kind of a personal choice type thing. What sounds cool to me might not sound cool to you.
