Product Information

MSRP: $800.00
Average Price: $287.95
Manufacturer: Banks
Yes: 109 / No: 4

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.

Price: $280.00
Pros: Sounds just loud enough, great power
Cons: for stainless steel look pretty rusty quick
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Have had this installed for at least 4 years sound great love to down shift just to hear It. I am not in the rust belt and it looks super rusty the muffler all shinny and chrome started to show rust first. I still would buy it again I just thought since it was stainless I wasn't going to have to.

Pros: Great sound.
Cons: Rear link/hinge backwards?
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great sound and I think it improves the HP a little. Not much change in MPG(not important anyway lol). When I put it on I notice that the last hinge/L-shaped link is pointing at the different direction than the old one. Put it on anyway. Feels strange but stays on fine.

Price: $275.00
Pros: Cheap, easy install
Cons: Muffler is not as loud as I would like
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I wanted a flowmaster but they don't sell a catback system with the tail pipe that goes over the rear axle. This system was cheap enough to buy just for the tail pipe (so then I could replace the banks muffler with a flowmaster). The sound is just like the stock sound but magnified slightly...not really a headturner.

Price: $285.00
Pros: The sound! Easy installation Stainless pipe wont rust
Cons: No noticeable power gain.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: First and for most the sound is what turned me on to this system! I'd seen Youtube videos of it and let me tell you I was NOT disappointed. At idle and in a slow traffic crawl my 03 TJ sounds literally like a "monster" I Didn't notice any real power gain but in the end I was more just looking for a tougher sound. I'd give it three thumbs up if I had an extra.

Pros: Great, low key sound Little to no drone
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: A great product. I installed in conjunction with a Banks Ram-air Intake. The packages together sound great... a fantastic addition. With both additions I noticed that my 4.0 felt like it had a bit more get up and go off the line and in the top end.

Price: $284.99
Pros: Sounds great, not too loud. Really easy to install.
Cons: None so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I read the reviews that others posted and it really helped my purhcase. The exhaust is all bolt on, no welding required. Definitely a do-it-yourself type project. Once installed you can really tell a difference in the tone of your jeep. At idle it grumbles, but you really can tell when you are driving at low RPM. It's not too loud on the highway and higher RPMs. Sounds great with my Airaid intake and Poweraid throttle body spacer. Outstanding buy!

Comments: I have run flowmasters on my last two jeeps and decided it was time to try something new. The install went very smoothly, all the parts fit nicely and were of a high quality. The sound is mellower than the flowmaster but still has a great tone to it.

Comments: I was in need of a new exhaust and after hearing the Banks Monster I was sold. Nice growl at idle that increases with the RPMs. Great at highway speeds.

Banks Monster Exhaust
Price: $300.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good buy. I bought it more for the sound than any gains. The stock exhaust didn't sound beefy enough. This one hits the spot though. Not too loud on the inside, but noticeable. There feels to be some gain to it, I don't have to try so hard to pass people on the highway anymore.
