Magnaflow Cat-Back Exhaust.

I'm not a big fan of the stock exhaust in the way it looks and sounds and am looking for a replacement and am eyeballing the Magnaflow Cat-Back because it has such a nice tip.
Anybody have any experience with this system and of course pics are more then welcome.

I have it and I have run it on my 08 for 6 months. Sounds better than stock though no where near as loud as a flowmaster set up. I buy performance parts for a major auto parts company so I could have my choice in exhaust. I run Magnaflow on my Jeep and my 300 SRT8 as I like the sound they produce. Drove 1100 miles straight to florida and my wife did not complain. I did have to go back about a month after install and retighten. It is a tight fit but it looks good and sounds great.

You know, I was looking at the same system, both for performance and rust proofing (I live in the foggy SF bay area), after looking at the stock system, it is stainless except for the muffler and is fairly straight and free flowing. As I recall the whole mandrel bent system is about $400.

My idea was to remove the stock muffler, which is clamped in place and replace with a magnaflow muffler. I went down to my local exhaust shop and had them bend me 2 90 degree stainless pipes which cost me $50 and took them home and welded it up. I think it looks and sounds great and best of all, all the joints are now welded and not clamps like the systems you get.

Now I would think that if you were interested in this your local muffler shop could hook you up for less than $300. Just a thought......

Thanks for the input guys, I did my lift today and couldn't believe the rust already on the side of the stock muffler after owning the car for two weeks, that thing just gotta go and I just ordered the Magnaflow, the Flowmaster is probably a bit too loud since I live in the mountains and have to rev it up max throttle at 5000 RPM to get home for a couple of miles and that could get bored pretty fast with a screaming Flowmaster every day.

The system we offer from Cool Tech LLC, is a do-it-yourself Magnaflow solution. We tested 8 different mufflers and decided that the Magnaflow sounded the best - by a good margin. (Also, not all the Magnaflows sounded the same... e.g., although the center-in, center-out would fit, it didn't sound as good as the center-in, offset out.)

Anyway, we have a complete kit for the (4-door) JK. The stock Jeep tubing is 2.5" mandrel-bent stainless. Kind of silly to replace that with the same.... so we don't. The Cool Tech kit includes a polished stainless Magnaflow muffler (Lifetime warranty), stainless steel Accuseal clamps (the best available), stainless steel tailpipe w/TIG welded stainless steel hanger rod, aluminum heat shield, and stainless band clamps.

The muffler is relocated (to where it should be in the 4-door), and the entire back area is a lot cleaner looking and much better for off-roading (improved departure angle).

Is any welding required for installation of the Cool Tech kit?

I think it's all bolt on. No welding required.
