Pulled the whole exhaust job off with a buddy, neither of us close to being master mechanics. But it was a pain using a mirror to get to the lower intake/exhaust bolts..... :-O

No worries I used to have a cobra nicknamed ground pounder. It could set off car alarms with the exhaust. But a jeep will always sound like a jeep. U can't replace displacement

X2 on the Cobra, I loved driving my uncles and setting off car alarms as I drove it, that was such a sweet ride. As for a loud exhaust on a TJ it sure gets annoying when you are following someone on a trail that has a loud exhaust. Just my Why not use the money for the exhaust and put it towards armor or something more useful?

I had to change my stock exhaust manifold as it was cracked, and the previous owner welded the front pipe to the manifold. so needless to say i had to change my entire exhaust to pass the safety. I went with full SS banks header, SS banks front pipe, SS high flow cat, the SS back pipe was saved.

I wanted to go with a flow master 40 or 44 and the mechanic did not recommend it as he said it would drive me nuts. I could not understand what he ment. but after driving for 8 hours with earplugs i now understand and glad that he didnt put in the louder muffler that i had wanted!

Glad to have a high flow dynaflow which happens to be a little more reserve in the load department.

I am running that same set up. I have the magna flow cat because that is what the parts store had in stock when I needed a new cat and that muffler because it was small enough to fit when I did my belly up. I sounds fine to me but I probably am not as picky as others. The weld did break where the pipe went into the muffler. I ran it without the muffler for about a week or so until I got it welded back together. It sounded louder, not that bad and I suppose a little meaner.

If I was going for a more powerful sound I would just run a pipe out the cat with no muffler.

01 TJ, 34 Super Swaper 34x10.5 bias, Winch, locked, belly up, some armor.

I'm almost positive that Jeep is 2003X on this board. No one else keeps their Jeep that clean or puts that much tire shine on
