Best exhaust for the sound?

Hey guys don't know if you guys hate this type of question but I just wanna know. Whats the best exhaust for my 99 Cherokee v6 4.0 to make it sound sick and loud. I want an exhaust that's not too loud when at idle and driving but loud when I take off. Not looking to spend too much.

Here is what I'm looking at:

or this

Looking to spend no more than $350

I'm also open to doing custom configurations with different mufflers and CCs.

Tell me what you guys think, Thanks!

Installed a Banks 2-1/2" cat-back system on my friend's '97 XJ and it is what you are looking, nice sound and loud.
Well built system that will outlast your Jeep.
Personally, it's too loud for my taste, the drone can get to you on long drives but I'm old.

The 4.0l sounds basically the same no matter what exhaust you put on

I spent $40 on a Thrush Welded muffler, sounds good ( like a Flowmaster 50 ) and cost a lot less. Iron Rock Offroad has a catback system for $100.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Exhaust sound is super subjective. Use Youtube. Common choices are:

Walker
Dynomax
Magnaflow
Borla
Banks
Gibson
Flowmaster (lots of different choices here ranging from quiet to d-bag)
Thrush
AP

So your saying buy this Iron Rock system or any other system but just throw a Thrush Welded Muffler on it? I dont want it too loud to where it obnoxious.

IRO has a FlowMaster 44 clone muffler, and a Flo Pro muffler which is a bit less noisy. The Big Blue Jeep got the IRO catback system, with Flo Pro.

I wanted cheap for my daily driver. I found a newish stock tailpipe at the junkyard for $10, and bought a Thrush Welded.

Have to disagree. I've a heard a few different tones depending on what you use. But after going through a stock cat there is not a huge amount of noise left to exit.

I've seen a handful of videos using the Gibson Swept Side and I like what I've heard so far. I'm gonna also gonna be picking up a Air intake a little later so I think I should be satisfied with the sound.

MAYBE, if you put a bumpin' cam in it...
...otherwise they are all variations on "meh"
