I have a Hushpower II on my 4-banger Ranger, and it is ridiculously loud, I would imagine it would be much louder on a Jeep 4.0. Sounds great at idle and driving around, but on the highway, well, I'd rather listen to Nancy Grace for an hour.
I currently have Banks on both of my Jeep 4.0's, one with headers and hi-flow cat,the other just welded in stock. They both sound great in different ways, loud on one, mellow on the other.
I had a Magnaflow on my last TJ, nice sound, good tone. I have a friend I wheel with who has a Flowmaster 50 and it sounds very similar to the Magnaflow, a little higher pitch, a bit louder, but nice tone to it.
Might look around, check Craigslist, eBay or something, you can find some great deals on mufflers. I bought the Banks muffler that's on the stock Jeep two months ago for $40 on Craigslist, paid $20 to have it welded in. If you're not in a hurry you can save some money if you shop around.
