Yeah that sounds a lot more clean actually. Unfortunately my CB isn't on that side of the vehicle

Still doable AJ, just after you pass or reach the B pillar run the cord underneath the drivers seat into the center console and you're golden bro

Got some exhaust put on today - Lemme know what you guys think. Can hear it pretty well in 1st and 2nd. Doesn't drone on the highway at all. Sounds beautiful at idle. Really a good piece of work.

http://youtu.be/cOfTK1y0WWQ

Here's a video link for the exhaust. This is the 3.7L with the Flowmaster 40.

Yes - well, he used about 1.5-2 feet of his stainless steel piping - But I think i'm going to go back to him to get a stainless steel tip welded on there. Will probably be after I get the CAI. But, yeah - I'm pleased with how everything turned out.

Nice WK man. It's nice to see other 3.7s around modded.

More ballsy than my Gibson sounds, kinda wish I had waited. But that being said the Gibson sounded a bit different on YouTube than in person.

Yeah - that's the problem with the video recordings. It sounds good on the recording, sounds better in person. I'll probably do another recording... See if my Camera will do any different than the phone, lol.

How loud is it? I've thought about a new muffler but am unsure without hearing it in person. Is it civilized under normal driving? I wouldn't want a "head turning" sound on the morning commute or rumbling at a stoplight that can be heard a few cars back with their windows closed (assuming that's even possible with the 3.7). I'd only really want to hear it when you get on it a little.

at idle it sounds like a V8 in park. When you accelerate from a start you will hear it in 1st and second gear. Gets quieter in higher gears. Its not loud or intruding in a neighborhood. People next to you and behind you will hear it, but its volume is really up to you and based on how hard you accelerate. I will get someone to drive the Jeep so I can get an idea of how it sounds if its going by.

Man, I was hoping to see the rest of your WK in that vid.

Exhaust sounds great -I agree it does sound similar to the 4.7.
