Muffler suggestions?

So I have a Buick 3.8 in my cj5 and am running headers outside the frame straight into glass packs and it's gotten old quick with the noise haha. Eventually I would like to run stock manifolds to run exhaust all the way back( poor college kid) but until then any suggestions on mufflers to run behind my headers that are decently quiet but still have decent sound?

I've heard nothing but good things about putting the Flowmaster 70 behind the 4.0 over in the zj forum. Should be pretty decent behind a 3.8

I have the same set up on my 225. I run a cheap set of turbo mufflers. they have been there for years and have served as well as anything I installed. The only thing to remember is you MUST have turnouts on the ends. If not you will get exhaust in the cab.

That was part of the problem because my glass packs were to long for turnouts

I put these in my last CJ. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/mpe-14416/overview/

They sound great when you stomp on the throttle, but are nice and quiet going down the highway.

These can be found at your local parts house, on line, speed shops, etc.

Been run'n a Flowmaster 44 Series for over 12 years. It's the only muffler that has held up to the 'cats' heat. Good sound also.

Thrush welded mufflers have a good sound, and a good price.

I have a set from Parts Plus. They look like a glass pack,but have a much smoother sound. 2&1/4" dual exhaust on my 350 and at 70mph with no top is no problem. Off road is nice and mellow and the size and shape don't get in the way of any maintenance or repairs.
