Flowmaster?

I have been looking for a Flowmaster system for a 97 wrangler and can only seem to find the muffler. Do they not make a whole system? Also has anyone seen a dual side exit exhaust on a TJ?

it'll be easier to just buy a muffler and have a shop weld it in. thats what i had done. a small mom and pop type shop will be the cheapest and can do a custom job and they usually do a good job.

I was just looking a banks cat-back from 4 wheel parts. It will run you about $245 out the door.

I just recently got Magnaflow exhaust installed on my 1997 Wrangler. I went to a mom and pop shop in Sacramento and they said they could do either Magnaflow or Flowmaster 40 Series for about $125. I went with the Mangaflow for performance, not that it's great performance, just that it offers more performance than Flows and a nice deep sound too. It took them about 15 minutes to cut off the stock muffler and weld on the new one. It ended up being $126.66 for parts, labor, and tax. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a good deal. I've thought about getting a new muffler installed, I am sure that mine has had better days. But, how noisey compared to stock are these? I hear a lot about the flowmaster 40...what are the differences between the models?

For those of you with new mufflers installed, does it drone at highway speed? Does it get annoying? Will it wake up neighbors in the morning? Not that all of those would be bad but just curious.

The 4.0 wont make a big growl with any exhaust. I have the FM 40 delta, which I do not recommend. I haven't heard the regular FM 40, but I guess it is better.

What's the reason you don't recommend it? I've had that series on other vehicles and it always sounded good, but I know every vehicle is different. My guess is that it's just too much. I was looking at Hushpowers, they have a nice sound, but aren't ridiculously loud. Anyone have these installed?

It drones horribly at speeds under 45 around 1800-2000 RPM's. I love loud trucks, but this just sounds bad. It sounds great at idle and up near 3000 RPM's, right before it gets silent. I think the delta version just loses to much on the I6, whereas a V8 it would sound good.
From video clips, the regular sounds better and I have been thinking about changing to it if I find one cheap.

Sounds good to me, I'll have to look into it....and this is the standard flowmaster 40, not the super 40 or whatever else?

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.

There's my
