How to make my zj louder?

Hi guys. I have a 97 zj with a flowmaster 40 series and the tailpipe on. It's not that loud at all. It's a bit louder than stock? What can I do to make it louder?!! Different muffler? Anything? Open to suggestions.. Thank you..

Just cut the muffler off and route the tailpipe into the cab.

I have a 40 series on mine, but what made it louder was the combination of muffler and cold (warm) air intake. I don't think its that loud and I like the mellow rumble.

Edit: forgot to mention how to make it louder... I ran mine without a muffler for a couple of days while I waited on my current muffler... It sounded like an old farm tractor and was very loud. Try that lol.

I have a 40 with a high flow cat that's probably hollow now anyway and ppl say they can hear me across campus when I'm driven around. My campus is pretty small but it's about a mile or so to the furthest point. I have to yell inside for ppl to hear me too. Also to make mine louder I put my foot to the floor.

Mine used to be louder before I put the tailpipe on. Now that I put the pipe on its not as loud. But it took off to much back pressure.
