I just had one installed and I think it sounds great. I decided to go with the flowmaster because I did not want the rice burner sound. I had recently changed the exhaust location and the muffler now sits under the drivers side door. To me my jeep actually sounds like it has some muscle and is not so loud that it disturbs others...
I say go for it!!!!!
I am not sure his pipe comes out of the door, I think he just moved the muffler up there...

Yoda13 is correct! Sorry about the confusion because the pipe still runs out the back just before the rear bumper. With my rock guards I was unable to run the pipe out the side. As for cost, I live in Denver and had it done at a place called BDM exhaust and it was $250.00 for the flowmaster, 2.5 inch pipe, and a complete installation with custom bending. I will try and post a pic later because I was very impressed with the bend. It will be very hard to hurt this thing now. I think the cost was reasonable but I also did not compare prices so I don't actually know the range. Maybe some others can give a better range that have researched them!
I yanked the stock muffler and put a Super 44 in line under the drivers seat. Just ended it where the stock one hooked up over the rear axel. Like the sound of it, helps me shift better when I can hear it. Muffler, couple of clamps and heat sheild cost about 110 and was about a hour project. I'm sure it would take others less time but I'm good like that.
I had mine straight piped but had to get an emission test done and they would not do it without the pipe. Thats why I had to extend the pipe out the back.
rentalguy1: 250 might sound like a lot but please note that my muffler is not under the bumper like yours. I am not arguing the cost just know that the pipe and the bend will cost more with my location. I don't bend pipe so no real option as far as cheap goes. Yes it should be cheaper if the muffler was in stock location
Funny, I'm the exact opposite. I want a new muffler, simply because I don't like the looks of the huge stock one. However, the jeep is a jeep. It's not a performance car. I don't want to hear it. It wouldn't bother me if I never heard anything from it. I'll be looking to relocate it under mine, but will be going with a very quite muffler.
