I have had this issue for a little while, ever since installing an aftermarket muffler. Now I know, obviously, that the muffler is louder than stock, but not by much...and it gives more growl. However, I've noticed that at right around 1500rpm there is a nasty drone while driving around. This is especially irritating as it tends to be right at city cruising speed. This is not the case though if I rev up through the rpms while stationary...
So obviously it is being caused when the jeep is under load or perhaps there is something else that is resonating only while moving though?? The muffler itself gives a nice note while idle...definitely not loud at all...and when I rev up while stationary (parked), that too is a pleasant sound...not too loud at all...
Anybody run into this problem? Any suggestions? My next step may be to just try and tighten every nut and bolt I find on the underside...who knows lol
Thanks guys...ya it just hit me that it's chambered and I've read bad things about them droning like hell. I'll see if i can pick up a dynomax or maybe even a magnaflow perforated core on the cheap side.
I bought the Dynomax muffler and tail pipe at the same time from Jegs. They used to sell it as a kit, but now you have to buy both pieces separate. The only other piece you would need is the muffler clamp for between the muffler and cat.
