Banks Cat Back w/Magnaflow Highflow cat converter?

I am trying to give my Jeep a better sound, I have heard the banks running from a stock cat, and a magnaflow cat converter running out other aftermarket pipes, but I would really like to run a Banks exhaust and the magnaflow together.
Has anyone ever ran this setup?

A 4.0L isn't really ever going to sound cool no matter what you do to it. I personally just put a flow master original 40 muffler on by itself.. doesn't get all that much better then that.. unless if you want a shiney tail pipe

The money spent on a cat back system could be spent on a much better modification. Anything less then 8 cylinders just aint ever gonna sound good

I run a Magnaflow cat and Banks Monster exhaust. I think it's too loud, but I have the 2.5L. Great if you hate your girlfriend. You'll never hear her talk in the Jeep.

I have heard some 4.0L that sound pretty throaty and closer to a truck rather than a 6cyl. I know alot of people recommend a magnaflow cat with a flowmaster exhaust and they have gotten a nice low tone.

I really don't mind the sound too much as long as it's not an obnoxious sound, and end up sound like a ricer is what I don't want to happen. I have heard people throw dynomax cats on their jeeps and it sounds like crap.

If you don't need a cat,don't replace it.It won't change the sound of the exhaust.I've used the Magnaflow cat and Flowmaster 40 and super 40 mufflers.The super 40 is much louder.

Did you run the super 40 with the stock cat or aftermarket? I wouldn't mind doing a Super 40 either but I don't know which model number would fit my Jeep. I know they don't make direct fits for wranglers.

I ran the super 40 with both cats (mine went bad).I got my super 40 and tailpipe for $140 on ebay.Just get the 2.25" in/out.

I will look on ebay and see what I can find. I heard a JK that sounded like a V8, but I didnt get a chance to ask what exhaust they were running

The note is low enough where it's not obnoxious, but it is loud inside. You won't be sneaking up on anyone with it.

Agree with the other guy about replacing the cat. Don't do it unless you have a problem with the old. Mine was pretty clogged. The only reason I went with the Magnaflow cat is because I couldn't find another direct fit cat.

I will most likely either go with a flowmaster exhaust or a banks cat back. really like the sound of both just undecided between the two
