Hey, This seems like a great idea. which is louder between a flowmaster and a magnaflow? I like the deep sound to both of them but when you hear them on youtube you don't get a sense of how loud it is. And another thing, where did you cut the stock muffler off? right where the exhaust meets the stock muffler or before the exhaust bends up over the axle? It'll probably be louder with the more pipe you leave after the new exhaust right? Thanks

Is it that important to relocate the heat shield?

A few questions:

1. Where did you relocate your tip? (It's probably in the video, but I can't see the video at work).

2. Have you noticed any increased heat in the floor above the muffler since you haven't put in a heat shield?

3. Does it look like the muffler needs a skid plate?

All I did was remove the rear stock exhaust which looks like a dumped exhaust, works pretty nice....

I cut a section of exhaust right between the driver seat and rear seat...

as for skid doesnt look like i need one it sit near flush with frame and body so it couldnt be damaged if something slips up there but so far so good for me!

Also heat I cant tell a difference all though its closer to the rear seat, it way be hot but dont know.... I run carpet-less and it doesnt bother me

Sound comparison is tough to get.. i ran no exhaust for a bit it was loud!! and putting the magnaflow made it very bearable and a real nice sound!! also I didnt cut the rear exhaust area, just removed the stock muffler.

What was the part/model number for the muffler? I was looking online and saw several. Didn't know if there was one that was specific or not.

So I am going to assume you have your exhaust dumping right out the muffler in front of the rear axle , underneath the Jeep. There has to be a reason NO manufacturer does this. Even MBRP extends the tip to the rear of the Jeep when they relocate the muffler to the same location you have. Why would they go to the expense if it wasn't needed (unless it's to get the noise further away from the occupants)?

Not dissing your exhaust, just trying to figure out any hazards before I do it.


edit: I don't have my brain with me today. It just occurred to me that you probably cut a section out of the exhaust to put the muffler in. For some reason I was thinking you removed the entire rear half of the exhaust. I just went back and re-read your OP and it even says you cut a 15" section out. I need either more coffee or a beer.....maybe both.

I would imagine the reaon for having the tip coming out all the way to the rear would be to prevent fumes from entering the vehicle.

You are correct. I've already established I'm not thinking clearly today. I think the fumes are getting to me. lol

Does yours exit under the body? In PA it's gotta go outta the passenger compartment. Don't wanna get into any issues..

Especially warranty

Sounds awesome though!

It exits passenger compartment but still located under the rear of the vehicle. If you go look under your jeep were your current exhaust is you will see a clamp were the muffler hooks to the exhaust.... thats were the exhaust now ends on my vehicle... so theres no cutting there... the only place cut is that section to insert the magnaflow or whatever exhaust one may want.... hope this helps
