Banks Monster Exhaust

1991-05 4.0L and 2000-02 2.5L WRANGLER: Constructed entirely of heavy-gauge stainless steel, Banks Monster features a supersized, 2.5-inch tailpipe with a stainless tailpipe tip polished to a mirror finish. Banks Monster muffler, its straight-through performance muffler, is the industry's least restrictive. In comparison tests, Banks muffler flowed 498.2 cfm at 1 psi—a 139% improvement over the stock exhaust's 208.6 cfm, and about 44% better than the nearest competitor.
Monster virtually eliminates backpressure from the catalytic converter back, for more power and efficiency—and an authoritative, yet civil, exhaust note. For maximum results, combine with Banks TorqueTube system.

I'm very happy with my Banks Exhaust System. I installed Headers and the muffler. The muffler is much louder than stock one and has a deep rumbling Sound that I rellay like.

I just put this on my 04 Rubi and wow it sound's nice. I had a Borla on my 98 and it sounded stock. If you are looking for a deeper/throaty sound get this!

Outstanding product. Great price and with the Tourque Tube header, AEM Brute Force Intake, I can feel a power increase. Sound is nice when you open it up on the road, but very civil when you're light on the pedal. I killed the polished tip in Sedona, AZ but could have prevented that if I would have cut the pipe back about 2 inches.

After having issues with my stock exhaust (@ 80k miles) I opted to upgrade to the Banks Power Monster.

I was a little shocked at how much louder the system is over the stock noise that I had grown accustomed to its just a hair quieter than no muffler at all. If I had known how loud it would be I would have gone with a more standard option.

Had this Cat-back on my 98 TJ. Was a easy install. The sound difference was awesome, mad my 4.0 sound like a V8 really deep, ballsy sound. Slight power increase, did not have the headers though. Plan on putting it on my Rubicon eventually.

The Banks Catbak is a very nice looking system, not overly priced and sounds good. The biggest complaint is that the muffler to tail pipe connection is very hard to keep together and will leak. It really needs to be welded. The system also drones when cruising at speed.

I now consider my Wrangler to be the best sounding TJ I have yet encountered, excluding those with V8s. This is the way a Wrangler should sound. I have about 500 miles on my cat-back system now, and I've been grinning ear to ear for every one of them! If you're looking to have your TJ sound ballsy and you don't mind it being considerably louder, then get this system! It's stainless, comes with a lifetime warranty, installs easily, it isn't too expensive ($270 shipped from Amazon), and it will make you love driving your Jeep even more than you already do!

Everyone has said what needs mentioned. My wife was actually okay with sound and noise level.

Easy install. Quality is what I expected from Banks. Have not been able to check mileage against previous yet.
