Give me Exhaust suggestions !!!

I have a 2004 X, I added a K&N air intake system and a Throttle Body Spacer. What should I do with the exhaust? I want to replace the factory exhaust. Should I go from Headder back? What Manufactures are good for this?

I am trying to increase performance!!! and HP!!

I also live in Colorado does anybody know of a good Jeep shop in Colorado?

sounds like your looking for performance, i just wanted sound and I just had a flowmaster 40 installed yesterday and it is bad to the bone. Sounds awesome with the top down and cruising with the 5spd.

I can't complain about the sound of my Banks Monster Exhaust... it's the perfect tone IMHO

Just get a Flowmaster 40 muffler and you're good to go. $120 including labor at most shops.

X3 or X4 (I can't count) on the Flowmaster 40. I did mine about 2 weeks ago and it sounds great. I'm too cheap for a full cat back. I just cut off the original and welded in the flowmaster.

Get a header and run it straight to the muffler

Banks is our recommendation

We put a Banks Monster Exhaust and TorqueTube Manifold in and have no regrets. Here is our tutorial and review...

I don't want to announce my presence sometimes so I went with a Flowmaster 50 Delta. It was as load as a 40 at first but muffled as it got sooty. It has a soft tone and a nice gurge while decelerating.

I have a header, stock cat, and a dynomax cat back. I enjoy the sound of it immensely.
